Abstract

A new effect not previously observed is predicted on the basis of numerical experiments with the Hodgkin-Huxley equations [A. L. Hodgkin and A. F. Huxley, J. Physiol. 117, 500 (1952)], which describe quantitatively the dynamics of generation, propagation and interaction of nerve pulses: colliding nerve pulse reflection. The range of governing parameters in which the effect might be revealed in real experiments is indicated.
