Abstract

Nerve membranes exhibit curious responses to alternating current stimulation, among which are phase locking, as well as reponses without apparent periodic pattern. These phenomena are investigated by presenting a complete analysis of the response to periodic input of an integrate-and-fire model, which is a simplified version of the Hodgkin-Huxley theory for space clamped nerves.
