Definition of conduction in English:
1The process by which heat or electricity is directly transmitted through the material of a substance when there is a difference of temperature or of electrical potential between adjoining regions, without movement of the material.
- In solids that conduct electricity, heat conduction is further enhanced by the drift of free electrons.
- Under equal electrochemical potential gradients, conduction of protons across ion channels occurs at a rate typically an order-of-magnitude higher than that of other small ions.
- Vanadium-vanadium bonds are stable below the transition temperature, which ‘lock’ the electrons and prevent conduction.
1.1The process by which sound waves travel through a medium.
- Deafness, therefore, is caused by conduction deafness.
- We have seen how the normal outer and middle ears participate in sound conduction.
- Furthermore a database having typical sound conduction components for a number of typical hearing impairments is provided.
1.2The transmission of impulses along nerves.
- Disturbances in this ration can alter cardiac rhythms, transmission and conduction of nerve impulses, and muscle contraction.
- Local anesthetics block the generation and conduction of all nerve impulses - sensory, motor, and autonomic - depending on the site of injection.
- Its most important action is its ability to block the initiation or conduction of the nerve impulse following local application.
1.3The conveying of fluid through a channel.
- This number is explained in terms of channel architecture and conduction mechanism.
- The results show a dislocation of the nanotube indicative of a possible disassembly process that may influence the channel conduction.
- Carbon nanotubes, unmodified (pristine) and modified through charged atoms, were simulated in water, and their water conduction rates determined.
