1. An extracellular electrical current creates on the cell membrane an induced potential, the magnitude of which increases with increasing length of the cell in the field. 2. The effective length of the cell in the direction of the field is determined by the ratio of the resistances of the soma and of the processes directed along the field. 3. The cell… CONTINUE READING
