Toshifumi Kumai “Isn’t there an inductance factor in the plasma membrane of nerves?”

【Significance】
Inductance factor in the nerve membrane

The mechanism of action potential generation of nerves has been explained based on the conductance change of Na+ (and K+ ) channel in the membrane with time. However, the substantial source of the change isn’t necessarily obvious. It is estimated that the change in the state of molecular particles at its gate would cause the conductance change, but it could be also explained from a view that the Na+ channel for action potential generation is represented by the series circuit of resistance (R), inductance (L), and capacitance (C). The current pattern of the RLC circuit as a model of the Na+ channel simulates well the conductance change in the voltage clump examination of nerves.
