I would look at
Luscher HR, et al. Modeling action potential initiation and
back-propagation in dendrites of cultured rat motoneurons.
J Neurophysiol. 1998 Aug;80(2):715-29.
though my favorite article on the subject (in scientific terms, I think
it's the best) is
Mainen ZF, et al. A model of spike initiation in neocortical pyramidal
neurons. Neuron. 1995 Dec;15(6):1427-39.
