comment Is there a biological neuron that spikes in response to hyperpolarizing currents?
Search for "rebound excitation" or "rebound spiking".

It is not clear to me what you are asking.

Sure, you can regularize your solution, and put extra constraints to get a better solution, but do you really recover the behavior of the cortical neurons with a thousand dipole model? Are dipoles the right representation for neural computation? We don't know the answer, but I'm betting they are insufficient.

Perhaps I misread OP's question. Upon re-reading, OP only says "simulating the behaviour of human cortical neurons", I guess it could be larger scale model. I'm editing my answer.

Thanks for the feedback! Yes, of course you can do source localization, assuming there are a few dipoles (or under other simplifying assumptions), but it's difficult to connect to the neuronal level simulation as the OP wants to do. (Sorry. I don't know how to turn your answer into a comment.)
