In contrast, high mossy cell activity, which could occur when the brain is stimulated or in a diseased state, made direct signaling dominant and kept stem cells in an "activated" state that may lead to a high level of neurogenesis.
The model was an anatomically and physiologically realistic network model of the dentate gyrus (Figure 4(a)) comprised of multicompartmental neuron models representing four major excitatory and inhibitory cell types (granule cells, mossy cells, basket cells, and hilar cells), reproducing their electrophysiology and firing behavior [62].
Similar extensive networks were found around individual mossy cells in the hilus of the dentate gyrus (Figure 4(d)).
