comment Counterintuitive action of Vitamin D?
Nice answer, but I still am unclear about how suppressing parathormone will help out bone density. Since functionally, Vit D and Parathormone are complimentary, will not suppressing PTH be equivalent to negative feedback control, valid for most hormone systems?

comment How is membrane capacitance related to the increased speed of saltatory conduction?
Wonderful answer. One follow-up question, though. Is the decrease in capacitance due to myelination a consequence of only the increase in separation of the charges or is there some contribution by the actual material of the myelin?
