Model Structure

Often it is not necessary to model the ionic currents of a cell with the accuracy and complexity inherent in the biophysically based models. With a view to investigating phenomena on a larger spatial and temporal scale, several ionic current models have been developed that do not seek to model subcellular processes but only to provide an action potential at a minimal computational cost.

The model created by van Capelle and Durrer (1980) follows the same general form as the FitzHugh-Nagumo model (see The FitzHugh-Nagumo Model, 1961), with a single activation variable and a single recovery variable. It also includes the ability to add more complex parameter representations.
