What did Hodgkin and Huxley discover?
Also to know is, what did Hodgkin and Huxley study?
The Hodgkin–Huxley model, or conductance-based model, is a mathematical model that describes how action potentials in neurons are initiated and propagated. It is a set of nonlinear differential equations that approximates the electrical characteristics of excitable cells such as neurons and cardiac myocytes.
Additionally, what is leak conductance? Definition. Ion permeability at resting membrane potential, allowing a constant flow of current through the cell membrane due to channels that remain open at resting membrane potential. Membrane Components.
Regarding this, who discovered action potential?
Julius Bernstein, with the help of Emil du Bois-Reymond, found a way to overcome these technical limitations and in about 1865 made the first recordings of the time course of the action potential.
Who invented voltage clamp?
Erwin Neher and Bert Sakmann developed the patch clamp in the late 1970s and early 1980s . They received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1991  for this work.
