" ... a novel model based on the Hodgkin–Huxley (HH) system is proposed, which has the ability to simulate the complex neurodynamics of the firing sequences of motor neurons. The model is presented at the cellular level and network level, and some simulation results from a simple 3-neuron network are presented to demonstrate its applications." See paper for more and details.
