FIGURE 1.2-7 A finite RCG transmission line model of a myelinated axon. One node of Ranvier is shown to the left with (active) voltage-dependent gNa and gK conductances; the other four linear RCG elements model the electrical properties of the axon under the myelin bead. Six or seven of the units shown can be connected in series to simulate the saltatory conduction illustrated in Figure 1.2-6. (Eight ODEs are needed to simulate one unit, four for the HH node and four for the myelinated axon.)
