A Lumped Element Modeling Schema for Metabotropic Signaling in Neurons Article uri icon



  • A lumped element modeling schema is presented that can be usefully applied to modeling and analysis of metabotropic processes affecting the signal processing properties of neurons. The schema is easily applied to qualitative models of such biochemical processes and facilitates the development of differential equation descriptions. The state variables within the model are applicable to augmenting and extending Hodgkin-Huxley-like models (H-H models) of neuron dynamics.
