Abstract

Electronic circuit analogues of biological membranes are presented, by which the passive channels are modeled as parallel and serial combinations of resistors (Ohmic conductors) and diffusors (negative non-Ohmic conductors), and the active channels of the one-way ion pumps are modeled as one-way inductors. We show that our simple analog models can reproduce known phenomena of membrane excitability such as the generation of action potentials and spike bursts.
