First Principles: Neuronal circuits are directional

Electric fields spread wherever a current can be physically carried, for instance along paths that are called circuits. In theory, because electric fields spread omnidirectionally, electrical circuits are non-directional, and changes in charges are propagated along all available wires – unless a gating mechanism is in place.In the nervous system, in contrast, the circuits formed by neurons are directional by way of......
