Overview

Most people know that electrically active cells in nerves, in the heart, and in the brain generate electrical currents, and that somehow these result in measurements we all have heard about, such as the electrocardiogram. But how? This course explores what happens within electrically active tissue that leads to the creation of currents and voltages in their surroundings.
