A mathematical model for an olfactory receptor neuron is investigated. The physiological and anatomical background required for the construction of a mathematical model are explained. The model, which has been described previously, has three components, including the sensory dendrite on which are found the receptor proteins themselves, and others consisting of a passive cable leading to a trigger zone and axon. In the present paper, we pursue an analytical approach for determining the change in… CONTINUE READING
