Voltage-driven alterations to neuron viscoelasticity

Abstract:

Background: The consideration of neurons as coupled mechanical-electrophysiological systems is supported by a growing body of experimental evidence, including observations that cell membranes mechanically deform during the propagation of an action potential. However, the short-term (seconds to minutes) influence of membrane voltage on the mechanical properties of a neuron at the single-cell level remains unknown.

Materials and Methods: Here, we use...
