A quantitative description of membrane current and its application to conduction and excitation in nerve
TLDR
This article concludes a series of papers concerned with the flow of electric current through the surface membrane of a giant nerve fibre by putting them into mathematical form and showing that they will account for conduction and excitation in quantitative terms. Expand
A quantitative description of membrane current and its application to conduction and excitation in nerve
This article concludes a series of papers concerned with the flow of electric current through the surface membrane of a giant nerve fibre (Hodgkinet al., 1952,J. Physiol.116, 424–448; Hodgkin andExpand

The variation in isometric tension with sarcomere length in vertebrate muscle fibres
1. The variation of isometric tetanus tension with sarcomere length in single fibres from frog striated muscle has been re‐investigated with special precautions to ensure uniformity of sarcomereExpand
Proposed Mechanism of Force Generation in Striated Muscle
Recordings of the change in tension in striated muscle after a sudden alteration of the length have made it possible to suggest how the force between the thick and thin muscle filaments may beExpand
Currents carried by sodium and potassium ions through the membrane of the giant axon of Loligo
TLDR
The identity of the ions which carry the various phases of the membrane current is chiefly concerned with sodium ions, since there is much evidence that the rising phase of the action potential is caused by the entry of these ions. Expand
Tension responses to sudden length change in stimulated frog muscle fibres near slack length
1. Apparatus for applying a step change of length to an isolated muscle fibre is described. The step was complete in about 0·2 ms.
The components of membrane conductance in the giant axon of Loligo
The dual effect of membrane potential on sodium conductance in the giant axon of Loligo
This paper contains a further account of the electrical properties of the giant axon of Loligo. It deals with the 'inactivation' process which gradually reduces sodium permeability after it hasExpand
