Summary of results using the Nucleus CI24M implant to record the electrically evoked compound action potential. Ear Hear 1999; 20: 45-59.
Experiments have shown that cells were stimulated by a current that was 180 pA lower in comparison to the control conditions in order to create action potential in 9 out of 14 cells (p<0.05) (Figure 4).
(16) As mentioned above, the generation of an action potential is determined by the summation of synaptic inputs, and modulation of synaptic (de)potentiation provides a scalar value that determines what neurons in a circuit will be preferentially activated in response to upstream neuronal activation (Fig.
There, the electric signals induce action potentials, which travel to the auditory brain stem and evoke acoustic sensations [1].
In this scenario, the performance challenge remains weak and collective action potential is strong.
Its cells produce discrete bursts of electric current, known as action potentials, that function as the zeros and ones of the nervous system.
The motor nerve conduction studies included determination of distal motor latencies, motor NCV, and amplitude of the compound muscle action potentials. The sensory nerve conduction studies included determination of sensory NCV and amplitude of sensory nerve action potentials.
The pressure waves in the axoplasm accompanying the propagation of an action potential were recorded by Terakawa [41].
