** We made our source code from two recent papers and one accepted
manuscript now available on ModelDB **

*The code simulates the Hodgkin-Huxley model with time-dependent ion

Briefly, the Hodgkin-Huxley (HH) model has 4 dynamical variables.
Including Na+,K+, and Cl- extra-  and intracellular ion concentrations
introduces 6 further variables.

Various simple reduction techniques, such as adiabatic elimination,
mass conservation, and electroneutrality have been used to reduce this
HH formalism to again only 5 dynamical variables, while the model still
retains adequate
biophysical realism. For example, bursting and cortical spreading
depression (SD) can
be simulated. The model conserves the HH action potential dynamics. See
Refs. [1,2]

The accession number for the  HH model with time-dependent
ion concentrations is 167714.

Moreover, the ModelDB accession number for a wild-type and
mutant SD model described in paper Ref [3] is 167715.

The model can be further reduced to only 4 dynamic variables (without Cl-).
For dynamic volume control and further features, please get in contact with
