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.
