    Without electrical signals in our cells we could not see, hear, speak, think or move; in The Spark of Life award-winning physiologist Frances Ashcroft discusses fascinating case-studies that illustrate the operation of ion channels, the proteins by which these electrical events are regulated. She tells the stories of scientists down the centuries whose experiments contributed to our understanding of 'the body electric' and presents the findings of the latest research into medical conditions caused when it goes wrong.
