Their efforts led to the el- tial (the excitation event itself) operates on a relatively egant and symmetrical mathematical model of Hodgkin fast time scale, whereas the system is modulated at time and Huxley (1952) which accounts for conduction and scales that are many orders of magnitude slower. The excitation in quantitative terms.
