Physiology and Electrochemistry of Nerve Fibers explores the properties of nerve fibers, including morphology, biochemistry, and physical chemistry. The book also makes an effort to trace the origins of the concepts that are important in studying the physiology of the nerve fibers.
The text covers the early studies of electrochemistry; the different theories regarding nerve excitation; the conduction of nerve impulses along different nerve fibers; and the behavior of impulses in myelinated nerve fibers and its electrical excitation. The book also discusses the emergence, morphology, and biochemistry of the squid giant axon, as well as further studies about it; macromolecular transitions; the physiochemical approach and model; and the electrochemical considerations of the classical membrane theory.
The monograph is intended for doctors specializing in neurology, psychologists, and psychiatrists who wish to know more about nerve fibers, their structure, chemical properties, functions, and the theories behind it, as well as its transmission of electrical impulses.
