The Axon models present the fundamental concepts that underlie the generation and propagation of the nerve impulses. This chapter includes a complete list of the equations that describe the Hodgkin-Huxley parallel conductance model specifically for squid axons, but these equations can be used to simulate nearly any action potential. The various currents generated by ionic conductances are individually described by their own equations. Ionic currents are controlled by membrane conductances and the appropriate electrochemical driving forces.

Keywords:   axon, ionic currents, parallel conductance model, Hodgkin, Huxley, space clamp, action potential, conduction velocity
