THE PEAK VALUE of the action potential of the vertebrate myelinated fiber has been previously recorded by a number of investigators. (1-5 and others). Values range from about 60-155 mv depending on the method employed. These methods may be divided into three general categories. The action potential at the node of a single fiber may be estimated from a knowledge of the action current in the axis-cylinder and the resistances in the various parts of the nerve fiber. Action currents have been… CONTINUE READING
