Chemical wave transmission in nerve, by A.V. Hill. New York, The Macmillan company; Cambridge, Eng., The University Press, (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / . Chemical Transmission of Nerve Impulses: A Historical Sketch is a translation of the French edition ""Les Transmissions chimiques de l'influx nerveux"" published by Gauthier-Villars in Paris. Organized into 12 chapters, this book begins with a discussion on the definition and importance of the phenomenon of chemical transmission, with chapters specifically devoted to both cholinergic and . view that this transmission is achieved by chemical means: as the impulse approaches the end of one nerve, it liberates, from the fine termination of the nerve fibre, a minute jet of a chemical substance which, passing across the synapse, stimulates the next nerve cell in the by: Archibald Hill is the author of Chemical Wave Transmission in Nerve ( avg rating, 1 rating, 0 reviews, published )4/5(1).

pulse assumes that the wave of physio-chemical disturb-ance, propagated along the nerve fibre as the nervous impulse, passes directly to the muscle fibre,, and there exsites contraction as it is further propagated. This conception of the unbroken physical transmission. of the excitation wave from nerve to muscle might well seem to receive. Dr. Hill provides a brief but clear, readable and authentic summary of what is now known concerning chemical and physical changes in nervous tissues induced by activity in the nerve cells and their processes. The monograph, being a lecture before British chemists, is primarily directed to laymen in.   Chemical Transmission of Nerve Impulses: A Historical Sketch Paperback – Decem by Z. M.

The transmission of a nerve impulse along a neuron from one end to the other occurs as a result of electrical changes across the membrane of the neuron. The membrane of an unstimulated neuron is polarized—that is, there is a difference in electrical charge between the outside and inside of . Chemical and Molecular Basis of Nerve Activity contains 16 chapters that discuss the significant advances in the study of the molecular events underlying bioelectricity and nerve excitability. After briefly describing the physiology and mechanisms of the nervous system, this book goes on examining the physiologically significant features and. A nerve impulse is transmitted to another cell at either an electrical or a chemical synapse. At a chemical synapse, neurotransmitter chemicals are released from the presynaptic cell into the synaptic cleft between cells. The chemicals travel across the cleft to the postsynaptic cell and bind to receptors embedded in its membrane. Neuromuscular Transmission. In order to move a skeletal muscle cell, an action potential must be initiated from a peripheral motor neuron. Cardiac muscle (myocardial) cells on the other hand, can initiate their own electrical activity in the absence of an autonomic nerve-mediated action potential.
