Knowledge of the resting potential and input resistance reveal little about the electrotonic structure of nerve cells since that structure is governed by the background distribution of activated conductances. The background distribution of activated conductances (or 'activation-distribution') is commonly assumed to be uniform, but there is much evidence to… CONTINUE READING
