Abstract

In [1] we considered the problem of calculating the speed of spread of excitation in a homogeneous nerve fibre on the assumption that sodium activation is a rapid process. The present communication analyses the influence of a finite rate of relaxation of the variable m in the H-H model on the speed of movement of the nerve impulse.
