The Hodgkin-Huxley Model shows the neuron voltage within the cell of a squid giant axon. This voltage is due to the currents flowing into the neuron and charging the capacitance of the lipid bilayer cell wall. Currents into the neuron are based on sodium and potassium ions flowing into and out of the neuron based on voltage-gates channels in the cell wall. The flow of these ions is determined by dimensionless variables that represent the probability a potassium, sodium activation, or sodium inactivation gate is opened, respectively. This model allows these parameters to be set by the user.
