Threshold Function of the Nerve Excitable Membrane and the Noise Associated with Ionic Currents

  • Cornelia Zaciu

Abstract

Certain of our previous studies performed by means of spectral analysis[1,3] showed that the nerve membrane of all or none type, processes stimuli so that they might have optimal characteristics from the viewpoint of the excitation process.
