PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Computational models of nerve conduction

Nerve impulses travel along neurons via the movement of ions into and along neurons through ion channels whose coordinated opening, inactivation and closing results in the progression of the action potential along the cell.

This project is open to Honours and PhD students
