Nerve Physiology

Producer: Sheffield BioScience Programs

An interactive menu-driven program which simulates a number of experiments performed on isolated frog sciatic nerve to illustrate important properties of mixed nerves. The program covers: removal of the preparation; apparatus and method; a series of experiments, in which high resolution graphic simulations of compound nerve action potentials (CNAP), derived from real experimental data, are displayed on a simulated oscilloscope screen. Experiments include: stimulus voltage/response relationships, investigation of refractory period, measurement of conduction velocity, effects of temperature and action of a local anaesthetic. Each experiment is prefaced by introductory text, has a protocol and associated assignments.
