Title: Analytic solution of Bloch nuclear magnetic resonance flow equation for neural communication

Authors: Adedotun, D. A ,Prof. Mshelia, E. D and Dr. Ngadda, Y. H

Topic: Clinical Research

Abstract:

A second order partial differential equation occurring frequently in applied mathematics is the wave equation. A generalization of this equation inevitably arises in many mathematical analyses of phenomena involving the propagation of waves in continuous media. Here, we applied the wave differential equation to investigate and explain neural communication using the nervous system. On application of Bloch nuclear magnetic resonance theory, a linear 1-dimensional homogeneous second order partial differential equation, as a model, is obtained which represents a nerve set in a vibrational motion. Analytical results from the solution of the differential equation show that the transmission of nerve impulses is not a flow of electrons, as in the case of electric current, but a wave of electrical activity travelling along the neurone. A three dimensional pictoral representation of the results further explains the phenomenon clearly.

    Obviously this article belongs to Nuclear and radiation physics but what I could gather after reading the abstract (article is not accessible )that it proves that nerve impulses are not a flow of electrons but an electrical activity.and its 3D representation will help explain further the phenomenon of nerve transmission.

    Dr.NileshkumarM Baria ( Viewer ),
    second order partial different equation after many mathematical analysis of phenomenon give propagation of wave in contineous media .what are the purpose to applied the wave differential equation to investigate and explain neural communication using the nervous system ? which are the effective application of Bloch nuclear magnetic resonance theory, how clearly explain the A three dimensional pectoral representation of the results ? this artical in physics & astronomy subjject.

    Dear author
    greetings
    It is purely Nuclear physics paper, how it is appearing in clinical research.
    transmission of nerve impulses is not a flow of electrons, as in the case of electric current, but a wave of electrical activity travelling along the neurone
    purpose of the study is not clear, application of mathematical equation to biological system is appreciable .

    The article is full of calculations which require specialization to understand it better, however after going through it i saw that the methodology which could help for better understanding of the article is not clearly and well stated or explained in the main article. I suggest that the authors provide more methodological detail of the work for better understanding.
    Thanks

    It looks like a great study albeit quite abstract in approach and way too technical to be considered a clinical research. As with other viewers, it is pure and applied physics oriented and probably is misplaced in this category. Thank you
