Zusammenfassung

The local effects considered in this review are responses, that is, active processes elicited by electric stimuli, which, unlike nerve impulses, do not propagate along a fiber, but remain relatively localized at the regions in the immediate neighborhood of the electrodes through which the stimuli are delivered. These responses diffuse electrotonically, hence the statement that they are only relatively local.
