Bioelectricity: A Quantitative Approach by Roger C. Barr, Robert Plonsey

By Roger C. Barr, Robert Plonsey

This is often the recent version of the vintage introductory textual content to electrophysiology. It covers many themes which are imperative to the sector together with houses of the mobilephone membrane and cardiac electrophysiology. equipped as a textbook for the scholar wanting to obtain the center advantage, this publication meets the calls for of complex undergraduate or graduate coursework in biomedical engineering and biophysics. New positive aspects contain additional, distinctive illustrations and a CD-Rom containing workouts and strategies. The publication is authored by means of eminent biomedical engineering professors at Duke collage who talk about many issues which are critical to biophysics and bioengineering and the quantitative equipment hired.

Sample text

This situation could produce a tremendous amount of largely redundant text, which we have tried to avoid in the following way: Where we subsequently refer to “the pth ion,” this notation means that the same argument can be made for each of the ion species individually (sodium or potassium or whatever). We have used this slightly abstract way of identifying ionic species so as to avoid having to repeat the same argument over and over, once for sodium, once for potassium, etc. On the other hand, it is important to keep in mind that while the mathematical argument (and the form of the equations) may be the same for each ion individually, the numerical values will be different, and thus the electrophysiological effects will be quite different, maybe even the opposite.

Many readers will have studied vector analysis before coming to this text. For those who wish additional material, several texts are suggested at the end of the chapter. 2. Here and there in this text there are digressions about the subject at hand that describe ways of thinking about the mathematical points, often using analogies. These are offered as an aid in developing an intuitive feel for the subject. While this can be a valuable asset, it is important to be cautious and not substitute such intuition for an actual analysis of the subject since the analogy may be loosely, but not precisely, true.

4. NOTATION FOR ION SPECIES Much of the evaluation of the movement of ions that is described in the sections that follow has the same physical basis and mathematical form no matter which ion is being considered. This situation could produce a tremendous amount of largely redundant text, which we have tried to avoid in the following way: Where we subsequently refer to “the pth ion,” this notation means that the same argument can be made for each of the ion species individually (sodium or potassium or whatever).
