I'm studying a neuron in an organism that has the following properties:
- The neuron's output voltage is dependent on the strength of the stimulus, if that stimulus is applied and removed without any further stimuli.
- If there is another stimulus that follows the first, then the magnitude of the voltage is reduced by a factor dependent on the time between the two stimuli, even if the strength of the two stimuli is the same.
I know approximately the function that governs this reduction in magnitude as a function of time between stimuli.
Is the Hodgkin-Huxley model sufficient to model the behaviour of this neuron? Is there another model that is more appropriate?
