For this week’s NEUROLUNCH Ali Khaledi Nasab will discuss “Mechanical waves in the neurons: Action waves due to action potentials”. Ali says, “I will start with the recent paper about the measurement of the mechanical waves in the lobster neurons, and I will finish with the recent and the only model developed for the mechanical waves.”
The references for Ali’s talk include:
