Regarding the resistance of human neural tissue, there are various
factors (ionic concentrations across the membrane, physical construct of
the membrane, etc.) which would effect the figure.  A reasonable mean
figure for the specific resistance of a nerve cell membrane would be 103
- 105 ohm/cm2 .  Synthetic membranes typically have a higher (~107 )
specific resistance.
