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.
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.
