Nerve Physiology

Producer: Sheffield BioScience Programs

An interactive, menu-driven and easy to use program, which simulates a number of experiments performed on the frog sciatic nerve preparation to illustrate some of the important properties of mixed nerves. High-resolution graphic simulations of compound nerve action potentials, 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, and each experiment has associated assignments. The package includes a manual, tutor's guide and student workbook.

Price: £250 (multiuser, educational license).
