CABLE PROPERTIES

n. the physical conduction properties of an organic cable such as an axon. As an electrical disturbance, each small, non-propagated impulse is transmitted yet conducted in a way that decreases exponentially with increasing distance. See conduction with decrement.

CABLE PROPERTIES: "Cable properties transmit information as impulses, yet the conduction of these impulses decrease with distance."
