Abstract:

A simulation of the information-processing function of nerve cells is presented. The computer model simulates the portion of the neuron at which spike potentials are initiated. Values for parameters were specified on the basis of neuroelectric recordings so that the results obtained might be pertinent to actual nerve cells. Trial runs verify that the model is accurately reproducing the functional forms of neuroelectric data. Input-output relations under regular input are given for a wide range of input frequency and pulse amplitude.
