Abstract:

The Hodgkin-Huxley equations describing the action potentials for giant squid axons have been mechanized on the University of Chicago analog computer Beekman EASE 2132 for the purpose of simulating a variety of experimental situations. The mechanization is described together with the following results 1 response to constant currents ranging from threshold to saturation, 2 response to a 100 cps sinusoidal current at two amplitudes and two phases, and 3 the effect of removing the potassium current term.
