Numerical simulations are presented of stochastic-in-time current pulses for an electrodiffusion model of the biological channel, with a fixed applied voltage across the channel. The electrodiffusion model consists of the advection-diffusion equation coupled either to Gauss' law or Poisson's equation, depending on the choice of boundary conditions, plus a model for the protein charge density in thechannel.
