Hodgkin-Huxley-like Model Neuron

Demo simulator of a firing biological neuron.
Updated 19 Apr 2016

An interactive MATLAB-based demo simulation of the electrophysiological behavior of a biological neuron is presented and documented. The differential equations which describe the temporal evolution of the membrane voltage in a biophysical model neuron, are introduced and briefly discussed in the documentation, together with the default numerical parameters employed in the demo. Several references and fundamental pointers to the literature are provided, with the aim of pointing interested users to further readings.
This project was developed for a multi-media presentation given for an invited talk, and in the present public release it is intended as a tool for educational purposes. Since the relevant source codes are included and fully commented, this software might also be conveniently employed as a development example for exploring the many advantages of MATLAB data visualization, graphical user interfaces (GUI) and MEX interfaces.

Version Published Release Notes

Modified the hh_step.c for the change in function name: mxCreateScalarDouble (old) --> mxCreateDoubleScalar (new), otherwise it did not compile.

BSD License update.
Removed comments and reference to the GNU General Public License.

No DLL is provided; the MEX-file needs to be compiled by the user, before launching the GUI for the first time. Look at the Readme file, and enjoy by studying the code(s).
