We have approached the problem of nerve excitability through three questions: (a) What is the diagram for a channel? That is, what conformational states can the protein assume, and what transitions between these conformations are permitted? (b) What is the channel conductance associated with each conformation the channel can assume? (c) How do the rates for conformational transition depend upon membrane potential? These three questions arise from a standard statistical mechanical treatment of a… CONTINUE READING
