The minimal cell model (MCM) is a reduced Hodgkin-Huxley model that can
exhibit excitable and oscillatory behavior. It consists of two
ordinary differential equations, dV/dt for membrane voltage and dW/dt
for potassium activation and sodium inactivation. The MCM has a stable
membrane potential of -60mV. With constant input current of 10uA/cm2, it
exhibits oscillations of 150Hz. It is based on the work by FitzHugh and
