Electrical studies of living frog and human tissues emphasize the fact that data obtained from electrophysiological studies of frogs cannot be applied directly to human beings. These studies show that frog tissue is practically equivalent to a pure resistance and that human tissue is equivalent to a resistance with relatively high shunt capacitance. These characteristics are believed to influence the response to minimal shocks.
