Bio electricity

Course Description

Bioelectricity, electric potentials and currents produced by or occurring within living organisms. Bioelectric potentials are generated by a variety of biological processes and generally range in strength from one to a few hundred millivolts. In the electric eel, however, currents of one ampere at 600 to 1,000 volts are generated. A brief treatment of bioelectricity follows.

Course Objective

The course aims at helping the students to think and appreciate the myriad of bioelectrical phenomenon in the nature.
