Electrodiffusion Model of Rectangular Current Pulses in Ionic Channels of Cellular Membranes

Abstract

A simplified electrodiffusion model for rectangular current pulses in ionic channels of biological membranes is presented. Numerical simulations and a dynamical systems analysis of traveling wave solutions in the model indicate that the durations and separations of current pulses vary stochastically in time, as is observed experimentally.
