With the experimental results, Hodgkin and Huxley proposed a biophysical theory that led the construction of their mathematical model [3],[5],[7].
Let us notice that the variables and symbols in ((52a), (52b), (52c), and (52d) and (53a), (53b), (53c), (53d), (53e), and (53f)) originally chosen by Hodgkin and Huxley and are different from those found in recent literatures, where the reference polarity of the voltage V and the reference direction of the current I are defined as the negative of the voltages and currents.
In addition, in order to verify the validity of the proposed model simulations based on the Hodgkin and Huxley model have been performed using a public-domain software.
