  • Description
  • Details

Electrical properties of nerve cells are covered in neurobiology courses, but because electrical concepts are complex and textbook illustrations are static, students often find neurophysiology intimidating and inaccessible. This book teaches students about neurophysiological concepts in a less formidable and more accessible fashion.

The membrane electrical potential is a central element in the functioning of all living cells, and temporal variations of this potential are crucial for signaling within the nervous systems of all animals. Electrical properties of nerve cells are covered in neurobiology courses, but because electrical concepts are complex and textbook illustrations are static, students often find neurophysiology intimidating and inaccessible. In order to make neurophysiology less formidable and more accessible, we developed a comprehensive approach that begins with the elements of electrical circuits.

Section I of the book provides explicit, illustrated introductions to electrical concepts, properties of ion channels, resting and action potentials, synaptic interactions, and neuronal circuits. Section II provides brief descriptions of seven integrated models, with complete glossaries of variable and parameter names and units. Sections III and IV furnish detailed descriptions of the equations for the models and summarize numerical methods. The book concludes with a brief computer guide and a bibliography.
