Leak Current

In addition to the voltage-dependent currents just described, it was also necessary to include a leak current. The leak conductance was determined by Rm, and the reversal potential was -80 mV. This resulted in a small hyperpolarizing current at rest, which compensated for subthreshold inward currents (mainly NaP and CaT currents), so that a stable resting potential of -68 mV was achieved.
