Spiker is a special type of cylindrical compartment, which fires a square, stereotyped action potential when its membrane voltage crosses a threshold. The membrane voltage is set to V_high for time_high seconds, then set to V_reset for time_Reset seconds. After that, normal membrane kinetics resume.
