Abstract

The classical cable equation has been used to represent the excitation of peripheral nerves by longitudinal field. But it can not predict the excitation of peripheral nerves by transverse field. A modified cable equation is presented to represent the excitation of peripheral nerves in transverse field. It is in close agreement with Struijk's empirical data of the magnetic stimulation myelinated nerve in vitro. The modified cable equation can be used to represent the response of peripheral nerves in arbitrary electric field.
