This article concludes a series of papers concerned with the flow of electric current through the surface membrane of a giant nerve fibre (Hodgkin, Huxley & Katz, 1952; Hodgkin & Huxley, 1952 a-c). Its general object is to discu the results of the preceding papers (Part I), to put them into mathematical form (Part II) and to show that they will account for(More)

The most widely accepted theory of the restirng potential of muscle is that the electrical potential difference between the inside and outside of a muscle fibre arises from the concentration gradients of the potassium and chloride ions. If we follow Boyle & Conway (1941), the membrane is assumed to be permeable to K and Cl but to be impermeable or sparingly(More)
