Most people know that electrically active cells in nerves, in the heart and in the brain generate electrical currents, and that somehow these result in measurements we all have heard about, such as the electrocardiogram. But how? That is, what is it that happens within the electrically active tissue that leads to the creation of currents and voltages in their surroundings that reflect the excitation sequences timing, and condition of the underlying tissue. This course explores that topic. Rather than being a primer on how to interpret waveforms of any kind in terms of normality or disease, the goal here is to provide insight into how the mechanism of origin actually works, and to do so with simple examples that are readily pictured with simple sketches and one’s imagination, and then moving forward into comparison with experiments and finding outcomes quantitatively....

Week 2

A presentation of the cylindrical fiber model of a nerve. The goal is to see how this geometrically simple model of a nerve actually is sufficient to explain complex bioelectric events within and around electrically active tissue. One learns that currents are driven forward by voltages across cell membranes,. Current loops are created, with some parts of the current loop inside and other parts outside the active cells. Electrical potentials are created by the current loops, and are positive when these are approaching, negative when they are receding. In so doing they form the basis of all extracellular wave forms....

Week 4

Weeks 1 to 3 present some intriguing concepts and explain them with drawings and sketches. Do the wave forms so drawn have any connection with real tissue? Indeed they do. The goal of this week is to examine some specific experimental wave forms that were measured in cardiac Punkinje fibers, and to compare them those anticipated in earlier weeks.Week 4 is the end of the standard course. The remaining weeks are for honors study....

Great follow up course to the previous within the installment regarding bioelectricity. Taught me quite a lot and am looking forward to further releases to the series if they are in the works.

Having been out school for over 30 years this was a very challenging but rewarding course for myself. I'm glad i took it

Perguntas Frequentes – FAQ

  • Once you enroll for a Certificate, you’ll have access to all videos, quizzes, and programming assignments (if applicable). Peer review assignments can only be submitted and reviewed once your session has begun. If you choose to explore the course without purchasing, you may not be able to access certain assignments.

  • When you purchase a Certificate you get access to all course materials, including graded assignments. Upon completing the course, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.

  • No. Completion of a Coursera course does not earn you academic credit from Duke; therefore, Duke is not able to provide you with a university transcript. However, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile.
