Electrical Circuits as the Nerve Cells
Physics Department,Curriculum Development Center ,Organization for Research and Educational Planning
The cell for transmitting and processing in the nerve systems and brains is nerve cell(neuron).Nerve cells conduct the necessary currents via the movement of ions. They communicate via electrochemical waves called action potentials. All of the important functional properties of the nerve cells can be represented by electrical circuits. This is very interesting subject and should be considered in introductory Physics textbook s .In this article we review on this topic.
