Abstract
When the excitability of cat's myelinated axons is sufficiently increased at any region by applications of direct current, nerve impulses carried by some fibers stimulate the adjacent fibers. The mechanism of this stimulation and the bearing of the data on the problem of synaptic transmission are discussed.
