Physiology of Excitable Membranes contains plenary lecture and most of the papers presented at five symposia of the Section ""General Cell Physiology"" at the 28th International Congress of Physiological Sciences. Organized into 44 chapters, this book begins with a discussion on the ionic mechanisms of excitability of nerve cells. Subsequent chapters focus on charge movement in nerve membrane; calcium electrogenesis; optical changes during electrogenesis; synaptic transmission and modulation; and transmission in autonomic ganglia.
