HODGKIN-HUXLEY MODEL 2 Abstract The paper summarizes the experimental research on developing a drug that controls pain using the Hodgkin-Huxley Model. Some of the essential aspects of the experiment are the movement of sodium and potassium through the channels and gates (Beeman, 2014). The purpose of the experiment is to determine the efficiency of the newly developed drug in controlling pain. The paper concludes by showing the importance of the Hodgkin-Huxley Model in testing the permeability of substances in the membranes. Introduction Hodgkin-Huxley Model is a complex biological model that is expressed mathematically. The concepts expressed in the model shows a valid approach to the approach of the study of the bio- electric activity through the neurons within our brains. The aim of the experiment to an experiment to research on developing a new drug that controls pain. Hodgkin-Huxley Model can be termed as a quantitative analysis and description of the membrane current, its application to conduction and excitation in nerves. The study outlines the selected molecules that bind to various segments of transmembrane proteins, including transducer channels, voltage-gated sodium and voltage-gated potassium channels. The processes of testing the binding properties of the bioactive molecules are also discussed in the research paper. The Hodgkin-Huxley Model will be used to screen bioactive molecules and the results will be used in the development of a new drug that will aid in controlling pain. The movement of sodium and potassium ions is determined or the permeability of the ions.
