A COMPARISON OF MODELS OF EXCITABLE CELLS, Kenneth R.
Whatever their specificity at the molecular level, anesthetics intoxicate every excitable cell in the body.
Advancing the frontiers of excitable cell research, such as in neurons and muscle cells will serve to further our understanding of the mechanisms underlying cellular structure/function relationships.
For example, if someone models an excitable cell, such as a heart muscle cell, and someone else models the biochemical response to a specific neurotransmitter, these two models can now be easily integrated to develop a more complete working model of the heart.
