After one marker has been transmitted, there is in each channel a refractory
period or "dead time" 8 before another marker can be processed. In neurons 8
can be as brief as 1 millisecond (ms). In systems at higher levels it is usually
In 1931 Telford proposed a cross-level analogy to processes in excitable cells
like neurons and cardiac muscle fibers.27 He believed that he demonstrated that
a refractory period — such as is found after an information input to these cells (
During the period required for this restoration, the cell is at first completely
inexcitable, in an absolute refractory period that lasts from 0.4 to 3 ms in different
types of neurons. Then it becomes relatively refractory for 10 to 20 ms or more, ...
