Calculations using the Hodgkin-Huxley and one-dimensional cable equations have been performed to determine the expected sensitivity of conduction and refractoriness to changes in the time constant of sodium channel deactivation at negative potentials, as reported experimentally by Rosen (Bioelectromagnetics 24 (2003) 517) when voltage-gated sodium channels are exposed to a 125 mT static magnetic field. The predicted changes in speed of conduction and refractory period are very small. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
