Model Neurons and Fast-Slow Systems

Logo for Model Neurons and Fast-Slow Systems
This is a sub-site of IDEA (Internet Differential Equations Activities).  This learning material is a lab-type exploration of how a neuron responds to external stimulus.  The physical system is modelled using the Morris-Lecar differential equations, which are similar to the Hodgkin-Huxley equations.  For phase plane analysis, a Java-applet graphing utility is provided.

The site starts with an explanation of the math, the history behind it and briefly how is affects regular peopl. The descriptions are very detailed and come with many step by step instructions for the equations with what the person should see at the end of each step. This is a very straight foreward site and at the end of the page it has a link for additional information.
