This article offers a fresh view of the problem of nerve conduction through the ``looking glass'' of semiconductor physics. It sees the nerve axon as being something like a combination of an ionic transistor and a distributed active transmission line, a view that allows the interpretation of a number of important observations of nerve behavior.
