Capacitor

Capacitor

(Science: radiobiology) device used to store electrical energy by accumulating charge on conductors situated close to one another. Energy may be stored and withdrawn at varying rates. Used in short-pulse plasma devices where only a moderate amount of energy is needed.

Re: The Physics of how the Myelin Sheath actually works.

If you consider the properties of a capacitor, you have two metal plates seperated by a diaelectric component. The metal plates have a pos charge on one plate, and a neg charge on the other plate. These two plates are seperated by a dielectric ...

The Physics of how the Myelin Sheath actually works.

... that the sheath acts like a sort of insulator and dielectric (aren't dielectrics normally conductors though?). Now, a normal nerve cell is a capacitor, sitting at -70 mV when compared to the outside, if you add a myelin sheath, what will this do? It will decrease the potential difference, ...
