Experimental and Computational Studies on the Basic Transmission Properties of Electromagnetic Waves in Softmaterial Waveguides


" The model stated that the electric nerve impulses were actually pulsed electromagnetic waves, which were generated by transmembrane transient ionic currents according to Maxwell’s equations, and the pulsed EM waves propagated along “softmaterial waveguide” pathways, which were constructed with cell membranes and cytoplasm fluids at both sides of the membranes. The observed phenomenon of no-delay in transmission of electric signals at electrical synapses was explained with the concept of coupling between two softmaterial waveguides. Signal transmission from synapses to muscle fibers and “saltatory conduction” between two nodes of Ranvier in myelinated axons could also be described well with this model."
