- Neurophysiology: Sensing temperature without ion channels. Brown, Brandon R. // Nature;1/30/2003, Vol. 421 Issue 6922, p495
Mammals use cold-sensitive ion channels to translate information about the temperature of their surroundings into electrical signals that are taken up by thermoreceptor nerve cells. Here I investigate the thermoelectric properties of an extracellular gel removed from the electrosensors of...
