What is conduction?

Conduction is the transmission of energy or nerve impulses from one point to another.
aberrant ventricular c. Abnormal pathway of a supraventricular impulse in the ventricle, caused by delayed activation of a branch of the atrioventricular bundle.
accelerated c. The partial or complete bypass of the normal conduction pathways by the sinus impulse, resulting in early activation of the ventricular muscle.
air c. Transmission of sound waves to the inner ear through the external auditory canal
and the middle ear.
bone c. Transmission of sound waves to the inner ear through the bones of the skull.
concealed c. Partial transmission of an impulse through the A-V junction, which depolarizes only a portion of the junction, thus causing abnormal conduction of the next impulse.
delayed c. First degree atrioventricular heart block. See under block.
intraventricular c. Conduction of the cardiac impulse through the ventricular muscle.
nerve c. Transmission of an impulse through a nerve.
retrograde c. Transmission of an impulse through the cardiac muscle or the conduction system in a manner opposite to that of the normal impulse.
saltatory c. Conduction in which the nerve impulse jumps from one node of Ranvier to the next.
synaptic c. The propagation of a nerve impulse through a synapse.
