Background: The article proposes a new concept explaining nerve conduction information.
The conduction is based upon proton hopping, the fastest known chemical reaction. A summary of the
proton hopping at several parts of the nerve structure are described.
Methods: The details of each part of the nerve system are described in the article.
Results: A summary of the parts of the nerve structure involving the role of proton hopping, are expressed
to give a complete picture of the nerve function and the role of proton hopping.
Conclusion: An overall description of the function of the nerve is described in terms of the role of proton
hopping as the mechanism of message passage.
