Dictionary » C » Conductance



1. A measure of conductivity; the ratio of the current flowing through a conductor to the difference in potential between the ends of the conductor; the conductance of a circuit is the reciprocal of its resistance.

2. The ease with which a fluid or gas enters and flows through a conduit, air passage, or respiratory tract; the flow per unit pressure difference.

Can anyone help me with Goldman-Hodgkin Katz model Question?

... sure what should i be writing down the answer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Compare and contrast the Goldman-Hodgkin-Katz model and the Conductance model for determining Em. What is assumed in each model? What considerations answer to question 1 are and are not included in these models?

Re: SA node

... membrane through ion channels, which at different times open and close during the action potential. As a channel opens, an increase in electrical conductance of the specific ion occurs through the channel. Similarly, as the channel closes, electrical conductance decreases. As the ions (Na+, Ca++ ...
