The myelinated axon can be modeled by means of a distributed RGC circuit. The Green function of this model allows for a generic formulation of the internodal segment response to any kind of stimulus, and accounts for the delay of the action potential associated with this segment. The RGC model accuracy is comparable to that of a more complex electromagnetic model, and predicted delay agrees with experimental measurements.
