This paper presents an upgraded cable model of mammalian myelinated nerve fibers in an extracellularly applied field. The kinetics of the nodes is based upon voltage clamp data in rat motor fibers at 37 degrees C, while the resting membrane potential is computed with the Goldman equation. The resulting spike shape, conduction velocity, strength/duration(More)

Using Christopher Hood's cultural-theory framework of doing public management, this paper analyses this problem from four different perspectives, i.e. the hierarchist, egalitarian, individualist and fatalist management approach.
