Abstract:

The classical cable equation has been used to represent the excitation of peripheral nerves by longitudinal filed. But it cannot predict the excitation of peripheral nerves by transverse field. A modified cable equation is presented to represent the excitation of peripheral nerves in transverse fields. It is in close agreement with Struijks empirical data of the magnetic stimulation myelinated nerve in vitro. The modified cable equation can be used to represent the response of peripheral nerves in arbitrary electric field.
