Excitation leads to rise in paranodal [K]e under the myelin. This causes structural changes in myelin structure and resistance. Current model aims to simulate this aspect. This is a space-clamped model of a double-cable nerve fibre.

To run the model, use command 

./mnerve-gui.tcl sc1

Stimulation protocols can be added with "+" sign in the "Stimulation" frame. 

Click "Run" to run the simulation, click "Add plot" to make plots. Plots can be
also made from the output file (just an ASCII file) with any plotting software.
