From the Back Cover:

Bioelectricity: A Quantitative Approach
Robert Plonsey and Roger C. Barr
The study of electrophysiology has progressed rapidly because of the precise, delicate, and ingenious experimental studies of many investigators. The field has also made great strides by unifying these experimental observations through mathematical descriptions based on electromagnetic field theory, electrochemistry, etc., which underlies these experiments. In turn, these quantitative materials provide an understanding of many electrophysiological applications through a relatively small number of fundamental ideas.
Bioelectricity: A Quantitative Approach, is the new edition of the classic introductory text to electrophysiology. It covers many topics that are central to the field including:
- electrical properties of the cell membrane
- action potentials
- cable theory
- electrical stimulation
- extracellular waveforms
- cardiac electrophysiology
- function stimulation (FES)
Organized as a textbook for the student needing to acquire the core competencies, Bioelectricity: A Quantitative Approach will meet the demands of advanced undergraduate or graduate coursework in biomedical engineering and biophysics.
Key Features:
New Detailed Illustrations

Useful Appendixes and Study Guides
Authors:
Robert Plonsey is a Pfizer-Pratt Professor Emeritus of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University. He received the PhD in Electrical Engineering from University of California in 1955. He received the Dr. of Technical Science from the Slovak Academy of Science in 1995 and was Chair, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Case Western Reserve, University, 1976-1980, Professor 1968-1983. Awards: Fellow of AAAS, William Morlock Award 1979,  Centennial Medal 1984,  Millenium Medal 2000, from IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, Ragnar Granit Prize 2004, (First) Merit Award, 1997, International Union for Physiological & Engineering Science in Medicine, the Theo Pilkington Outstanding Educator Award, 2005, Distinguished Service award, Biomedical Engineering Science, 2004, ALZA distinguished lecturer, 1988. He was elected Member, National Academy of Engineering, 1986 ("For the application of electromagnetic field theory to biology, and for distinguished leadership in the emerging profession of biomedical engineering").
Roger C. Barr is Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Duke University. In past years he served as the Chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Duke, and then as Vice President and President of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. He received the Duke University Scholar-Teacher Award in 1991. He is the author of more than 100 research papers about topics in bioelectricity and is a Fellow of the IEEE and American College of Cardiology. This text is a product of interactions with students, and in this regard he has taught the bioelectricity course sequence numerous times.
Praise for Previous Editions:
"This fine text, by two well-known bioengineering professors at Duke University, is an introduction to electrophysiology aimed at engineering students. Most of its chapters cover basic topics in electrophysiology: the electrical properties of the cell membrane, action potentials, cable theory, the neuromuscular junction, extracellular fields, and cardiac electrophysiology. The authors discuss many topics that are central to biophysics and bioengineering [and] the quantitative methods [they] teach will surely be productive in the future."
IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology
"The authors’ goal in producing this book was to provide an introductory text to electrophysiology, based on a quantitative approach. In attempting to achieve this goal, therefore, the authors have opened the book with a useful, and digestible, introduction to various aspects of the mathematics relevant to this field, including vectors, introduction to Laplace, Gauss’s theorem, and Green’s theorem. This book will be useful for students in medical physics and biomedical engineering wishing to enter the field of electrophysiological investigation. It will also be helpful for biologists and physiologists who wish to understand the mathematical treatment of the processes and signals at the center of the interesting interdisciplinary field."
