Paramecium, positive and negative potential generation, positive pulse, swimming directions, Ca2+ and K+ charges (ions)
This paper presents modelling and analysis of activity in paramecium of unicellular organism. Activity is composed of electrical three zones and two depletion layers induced in the cytoplasm. Analysis was done on space-time dynamic motion of charges (ions). Electrical equivalent circuit of activity and active cell are given. Characteristics analysis is done for amplifier and oscillator. Positive pulse and its variations as negative pulsed, positive plateaus are realised in this modelling.
