HODGKIN-HUXLEY MODEL 2AbstractThe paper summarizes the experimental research on developing a drug that controls pain usingthe Hodgkin-Huxley Model. Some of the essential aspects of the experiment are the movementof sodium and potassium through the channels and gates(Beeman, 2014). The purpose of theexperiment is to determine the efficiency of the newly developed drug in controlling pain. Thepaper concludes by showing the importance of the Hodgkin-Huxley Model in testing thepermeability of substances in the membranes.IntroductionHodgkin-Huxley Model is a complex biological model that is expressed mathematically. Theconcepts 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 anexperiment to research on developing a new drug that controls pain. Hodgkin-Huxley Model canbe termed as a quantitative analysis and description of the membrane current, its application toconduction and excitation in nerves. The study outlines the selected molecules that bind tovarious segments of transmembrane proteins, including transducer channels, voltage-gatedsodium and voltage-gated potassium channels. The processes of testing the binding properties ofthe bioactive molecules are also discussed in the research paper. The Hodgkin-Huxley Modelwill be used to screen bioactive molecules and the results will be used in the development of anew drug that will aid in controlling pain. The movement of sodium and potassium ions isdetermined or the permeability of the ions.
