BIOELECTRIC POTENTIAL

n. the electric potential inherently present in in the individual cells and tissues of man. This potential exists in nerves, muscles, and all other living tissues. There is excitability in their atoms and molecules which can potentially be stimulated or inhibited through energy.

BIOELECTRIC POTENTIAL: "The mere fact that nerves are able to conduct impulses and muscles respond to transcutaneous electro nerve stimulation (TENS) indicates a bioelectric potential."
