The artificial excitation process of neurons of the central nervous system depends on the applied extracellular field, on the geometry of the neuron and on the electrical properties of the neural subunits. Results of computer simulations are based on a compartment model of the neuron and its equivalent electrical network. Furthermore, a theory is presented which generalizes the activating function concept known from peripheral nerve stimulation. The theory predicts the influence of electrical… CONTINUE READING
