About this Textbook

This textbook presents a broad overview of topics concerning cellular electrophysiology – covering topics ranging from bioelectric phenomena recognized as far back as ancient Egypt to popular topics on the dangers of electrosmog. Without sacrificing scientific precision, this clear and concise work presents on the one hand the different methods and applications, on the other hand the biophysical fundamentals of ion-channel and carrier proteins. Numerous and carefully selected illustrations and diagrams supplement the text, while questions at the end of each chapter allow readers to test their understanding. Each section also includes references to relevant original literature for further reading. The book offers a valuable resource for students of biology, chemistry and physics with a special interest in biophysics.

Silvia Schwarz finished her university education in biology and chemistry at Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg in 1974. Thereafter, she was educated and worked as teacher in biology and chemistry until 2008. Since then she works as research associate at Shanghai Research Center for Acupuncture and Meridians (Shanghai Key Laboratory of Acupuncture Mechanism and Acupoint Function, Fudan Univ.). Silvia Schwarz’s main research focus is on antiviral effects of Chinese herbal drugs applying electrophysiological methods.

Wolfgang Schwarz received his doctor degree in physics at University of Saarland in 1975. Thereafter, he spent two years as postdoc at University of Washington Seattle working on characteristics of ion channels. In 1981 he habilitated in physiology at University of Saarland and received a position as head of a Cell Physiology Laboratory at Max-Planck-Institute of Biophysics Frankfurt. Wolfgang Schwarz’s main focus turned to structure-function and regulation of carrier transporters and teaching electrophysiology as professor for physics at Goethe-University Frankfurt, Shanghai Institutes of Biological Sciences and Fudan-University Shanghai.  Since 2004 Wolfgang Schwarz is head of the Cell Electrophysiology Laboratory of Shanghai Research Center for Acupuncture and Meridian (Shanghai Key Laboratory of Acupuncture Mechanism and Acupoint Function, Fudan Univ.) and concurrent professor at Fudan University.
