Impulse conduction in multiple sclerosis: a theoretical basis for modification by temperature and pharmacological agents

C. L. Schauf, F. A. Davis
1974 Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry  
The consequences of such an assumption have been investigated by numerical solution of a well-known set of differential equations describing conduction in a model demyelinated axon.  ...  It is generally believed that the clinical signs and symptoms in MS are the result of defects of impulse conduction in demyelinated axons of the central nervous system.  ...  The prediction of this model that the absolute refractory period is increased to approximately 2-5 times normal in a 9000 demyelinated fibre seems in reasonable accord with these observations.  ...

On the Geometry of Interacting Axon Tracts in Relation to Their Functional Properties [article]

Aman Chawla, Salvatore Domenic Morgera
2022 bioRxiv   pre-print
In addition to our simulation study of focal demyelination, we present a justification for a certain geometric W-matrix used in our phenomenological 2019 model.  ...  It is well known that demyelination associated with multiple sclerosis alters coupling between axons in a diseased nerve tract due to exposure of ion channels.  ...  Note that the duration of an action potential from our simulation program is about 1 millisecond, but if we include the refractory period, we cannot have action potentials less than about 2 millisecond  ...
