Electrophysiology Of The Axon

Now that we have defined the problem of biological excitability, reviewed the informational structures of living organisms and perused the early history of animal electricity, it is time for us to get down to the specifics of electrophysiology, the study of the electrical behavior of cells, tissues and organs. We must follow this trail before we can descend to the molecular level.
