Zur Frage der thermoelastischen Eigenschaften des Nerven

Kurze Mitteilungen


The thermo-elastic properties of nerve have been studied by measurements of the change in length caused by changes in temperature. The thermal coefficient (per °C) of linear expansion, always positive in sign, is of the order of 10−4 for intact nerve and 10−5 for dissected nerve.
