OK, show me a "current" in the absence of
In nervous systems, "current" is embodied
in ion's motions - "conductances".
Forgive me, please, it seems that, these 'days'
I'm thrust-into work that entails eliminating
redundant usage in symbolic representations.
It's not "trivial". All the extra stuff that's heaped-
up in the symbolics 'blinds' folks to what's act-

Please Forgive me. I'm not 'jumping' =you=.
