A method for predicting excitation of axons based on the response of passive models is proposed. An expression describing the transmembrane potential induced in passive models to an applied electric field is presented. Two terms drive the polarization of each node: a source term described by the activating function at the node, and an ohmic term resulting from redistribution of current from sources at other nodes. It is shown that a total equivalent driving function including both terms can be… CONTINUE READING
