Electrical analog of a Neuron

Can the biological equivalent of action potential reproduced through electrical circuits? Here, we address this question by generating the action potential on electrical hardware built with simple components which can be remotely triggered by the user.

Objectives :

  1. To understand how neuron is represented as simple RC circuit?
  2. To generate and study action potential of a neuron using remotely triggered equipment.
