What: 60 Years of Hodgkin and Huxley

When: July 12-13th, 2012

Where: Trinity College, Cambridge

Registration details: http://www.cnsorg.org/hodgkin-huxley60

This congress is being organized to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the original publication of the Hodgkin and Huxley model of the generation of the action potential by the squid giant axon. This publication and the mathematical model it describes is at the core of our modern understanding of how the action potential is generated, and has had profound effects on many fields of biological science and in particular on computational studies of neuronal function. The congress will be held at Trinity College, Cambridge that is the home academic institution for the original research.

As part of the meeting, a plaque commemorating their achievement and that of their important predecessor, Lord Adrian, in the discovery of the action potential will be unveiled on the Physiology Building.
