We show that some of the nonlinear conductance properties of electro-osmosis in sweat-duct capillaries may be modeled by a memristive circuit. This includes both the observed phase shift and amplitude modulation of the electrical current response to a simple harmonic driving potential. Memristive sytems may therefore be expected to play a role in modeling the electrical properties of skin, and perhaps also in other systems where nonlinearities are observed in their bioimpedance.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that protoplasmic tubes of the acellular slime mould Physarum polycephalum show current versus voltage profiles consistent with memristive systems, and that this effect is due to the living protoplasma of the mould, which contributes to the development of self-growing bio-electronic circuits.

TLDR
Electro-osmosis may be a source of error in skin ionic permeability studies with electrical parameters because it implies current rectification, a powerful skin breakdown mechanism with potentials larger than 50V, and that negative d.c. potentials are more dangerous than positive on dry skin.
