  1. The numbers show the default value of each parameter, and correspond to the default resting state marked by the white dot in Figure 2. The rightmost column shows which stresses increase (upward arrow) or decrease (downward arrow) the value of a parameter. Details of the choice of parameter values are given in additional file 2.
