Space-clamped squid axons treated with low calcium and computed Hodgkin-Huxley (HH) axons were stimulated by steps of superthreshold current from 101 to 400% of the rheobasic value over a temperature range of 5-27 degrees C. The natural frequency of sustained repetitive firing of real and computed axons depended weakly upon stimulus intensity and strongly upon temperature, with a Q(10) of 2.7 (experimental) and 2.6 (computed). For real axons, but not the computed axon, the intervals between the… CONTINUE READING
