We have developed a model of the mammalian respiratory central pattern generator (rCPG) to mimic the salient characteristics of its constituent medullary neurons. This model is designed as a network of Hodgkin-Huxley-type medullary neurons driven by a pacemaking neuron from the pre-Bötzinger complex. Here, we present the results of our model of this pacemaking neuron, based on available voltage clamp data. Implications for the behavior of the rCPG are discussed.
