Abstract

Abstract Assuming constant field conditions, the membrane process allowing ionic flow is defined by the coefficients of a Goldman-like equation. If n ions are involved, it is demonstrated that two conditions utilize the same process when: (a) the equilibrium potential for each condition is the same; and, (b) after each of n−2 changes in different ion species concentration, each new pair of equilibrium potentials are also the same. Some implications for identifying neural transmitters are discussed.
