Computational neural models

I am interested in exploring various computational neural models used in
simulations of neural systems (biologically-based, not ANNs).  In the
literature I have read I have come across two families of models for
spike initiators, and I am told of a third, but i don't know much about it.

Many people use modifications of the original Hodgkin-Huxley squid
axon model, scaling to appropriate temperatures for mammalian models.  I
have also seen a few references to the Two Time Constant Model proposed
by AV Hill quite a few years back.  I am also told that there is a model
developed by frankenheuser and Dodge.

Are there other families of spike initiators in the literature?
