## Question:

The Fitzhugh-Nagumo model for the electrical impulse in a neuron states that, in the absence of relaxation effects, the electrical potential in a neuron v(t) obeys the differential equation

where a is a positive constant such that 0 < a < 1.

(a) For what values of v is v unchanging (that is, dv/dt = 0)?

(b) For what values of v is v increasing?

(c) For what values of v is v decreasing?
