Errata: There are three errors in this publication.  1) Methods: Calculation of the net current dipole in our model was in a direction PARALLEL to the longitudinal axis of the apical dendrite. 2) Results: It is stated that a scaling factor of 30,000 was multiplied applied to the model results (Figure 6). It was actually 3000. 3) Table 2, input times of FB inputs should be 70ms not 7ms.
