In reponse to a message already deleted...

Can currents through ion channels be termed electric?  Why not?  I don't
think electrons have to be involved do they?  What about the poor old
electric fish with electric organs?  Isn't their "electricity" generated
via ion channels?  Ionic current is more appropriate though, I must admit.
