A new technique for the generation of the action potential (AP) in a peripheral nerve is described. Commonly, efforts have been dedicated to the imitation of the typical form of such an AP with mathematical functions, However, in this work we present a structural control model which tries to represent the causes of the AP. The maximum simplicity is pursued in order to facilitate its implementation into a circuit, so only the sodium, potassium and calcium conductances are included. This model also presents the property of subthreshold stimuli. The developed model is validated by the use of some adequate simulations
