In a variety of nerve fibers, cells and other excitable tissues, the electric responses to electric stimuli were found to be accompanied by a transient swelling of the tissues. The rising phase of this swelling coincides with that of the electric response. By use of a heat-sensor made of polyvinylidene fluoride film, it was also shown that the electric responses of many types of excitable tissues are accompanied by simultaneous heat production. To elucidate the origin of this swelling and heat… CONTINUE READING
