This is an advanced, specialized, and sophisticated treatment of a very complex subject, the study of which requires a fairly substantial knowledge of cellular electrophysiology, biophysics, and mathematics. The spread of current in simple cable-like structures and in more complex networks is analyzed in great detail, as are the phenomena that underlie the action potential and those that give rise to repetitive activity. This book may well become a standard work and remain so for many years. The problems it analyzes constitute the substrate of all activity in nerve cells, muscle cells, cardiac muscle cells, and the brain; that the
