Effect of junctional resistance on source-strength in a linear cable.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
This paper studies the relative strength of sources associated with the cell and the junction between cells of an equivalent single cardiac fiber. It is shown that the junctional source is negligible compared to the cellular source. On the other hand, the junctional resistance affects the magnitude of the cellular source reducing it by possibly an order of magnitude. The significance of these results to cardiac electrophysiology is that the effect of the junctional resistance may have to be considered separate from that of the cellular resistance.
