The response of excitable cells to naturally occurring or artificial stimuli is a subject of great importance in understanding natural function of nerve and muscle and in designing systems for interventional activation. Electric and magnetic field stimulation arises in research investigations and in clinical diagnosis, therapy, and rehabilitation.
