  abstract =     "Realistic computational models of single neurons
                 require component ion channels that reproduce
                 experimental findings. Here, a topology-mutating
                 genetic algorithm that searches for the best state
                 diagram and transition-rate parameters to model
                 macroscopic ion-channel behaviour is described.
                 Important features of the algorithm include a
                 topology-altering strategy, automatic satisfaction of
                 equilibrium constraints (microscopic reversibility),
                 and multiple-protocol fitting using sequential goal
                 programming rather than explicit weighting. Application
                 of this genetic algorithm to design a sodium-channel
                 model exhibiting both fast and prolonged inactivation
                 yields a six-state model that produces realistic
                 activity dependent attenuation of action-potential
                 backpropagation in current-clamp simulations of a CA1
                 pyramidal neuron.",
