[Comp-neuro] "realistic models" and Computational Electrophysiology

A research area concerned with the development of realistic neuronal 
models in my view would gain if named more specifically than 
"computational neuroscience". 
I would call it computational electrophysiology; this term is already 
used, mostly by cardiologists. 
The appreciation of the intrinsic connection with the classical 
electrophysiology immediately clarifies the discussed perspectives,
limitations, and training in this research area, as well as its relation 
to theoretical neuroscience.

Using well-established realistic neuronal models is a different story.
