An electrodiffusion model of the mammalian myelinated nerve fiber

J. A. Halter; B. Zupan Proceedings of 17th International Conference of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1995

A new model of the mammalian myelinated nerve fiber is presented which includes the representation of longitudinal electrodiffusion of component ions within the intra-axonal and periaxonal volumes. The model utilizes a non- uniform compartmental approximation to the detailed anatomy of the nodal and paranodal regions. The axonal membrane includes ionic pumps and multiple types of ionic channels whose spatial distribution ...


Electromagnetic stimulation of a myelinated axon

P. J. Basser; B. J. Roth Sixteenth Annual Northeast Conference on Bioengineering, 1990

A mathematical model of electromagnetic stimulation of a peripheral nerve axon in a limb is presented. The model predicts the distribution of transmembrane potential along the axon, and the shape of the tissue volume that is stimulated. It is shown that threshold stimulus strength is inversely proportional to the square of the axon diameter


Segmentation of Nerve Fibers by Introducing Intensity Priority in Level Set

Ximei Zhao; Zhenkuan Pan; Shixiu Zheng 2010 4th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering, 2010

The segmentation of the optic nerve fibers is important for the morphometry study of optic nerve. However, such studies are hampered by the thousands of fibers involved when manual segmentation has to be used. We have developed an automatic segmentation method which is principally based on improved Chan-Vese level set model which integrating myelin sheath intensity priority. Next, identify the ...


Influence of the myelin sheath on excitation properties of nerve fibers

W. M. Grill; A. G. Richardson; C. C. McIntyre Proceedings of the 22nd Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (Cat. No.00CH37143), 2000

The excitation and conduction properties of computer-based cable models of mammalian motor nerve fibers incorporating three different myelin representations were compared. The three myelin representations were a perfectly insulating single cable (model A), a finite impedance single cable (model B), and a finite impedance double cable (model C). Extracellular stimulation of the three models was used to study strength-duration, current- ...


Low-level microwave effect on nerve pulse propagation velocity

H. Hinrikus; J. Lass; T. Tuulik Proceedings of the 25th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE Cat. No.03CH37439), 2003

The hypotheses that microwave radiation can affect permeability of the nerve fibers membranes or myelin sheaths was examined in this study. The changes in fiber membrane permeability affect propagation velocity of the nerve pulse. The experimental investigation was carried out for nerve pulse propagation velocity with and without applied microwave field and different orientations of its polarization to the nerve ...
