The electrical interaction of adjacent fibres in nerve bundles has been studied mathematically. It is shown that on excitation of some of the fibres of a bundle a membrane potential is induced in the others, the amplitude of which considerably rises in inhomogeneous fibres - such as branching fibres or those emerging from the bundle.
