Abstract

A model is proposed for analysing the passive electrical properties of syncytial structures with anisotropy. Within the framework of the model the potential falls by the law ~ e-r r with increase in the distance from the polarizing electrode. The input resistance of the three-dimensional syncytium weakly depends on the resistance of the electrogenic membrane and is chiefly determined by the resistance of the myoplasm and the intercellular contacts.
