@VahidGh Thanks again for the link to the paper. I think I have a better layman's idea about what we are trying to achieve from a science-simulation perspective. Let me try to summarize it here, and if you guys have any clarifying comments that'd be great! Overall we are trying to figure out how the worm actually moves, with the Boyle et.al. 2007 paper providing a model for how the muscle cells are connected, and how the intercell gaps facilitate the flow of electrical currents (via the propagation equations). The work in ChannelWorm is to provide this model with accurate parameters that describe the action potentials between each different types of ion channels in these intercell gaps ... is that a reasonable layman's description/interpretation of the problem?
@cheelee, Sorry, I didn't notice you commented. Actually, the aim of the muscle-model sub-project is what you described, and we have models for the Boyle&Cohen paper right now, and working on improvement. Then. this is going to be integrated with models from motor neurons, etc. Motor neurons, and other type of neurons have also their own ion channels, so in CW we are working to model those channels in different cells for the overall integration and optimization (e.g in C302 project). And finally model some overall behavior like movement.
