intercellular coupling
regions of special and high ionic permeability at points of junction between closely apposed cells. These regions offer lower resistance to the passage of electric current and large molecules. This phenomenon is most apparent in the skin.
epidermal intercellular edema
intercellular infection of ducks
a disease principally of Muscovy ducks caused by an unidentified bacteria and accompanied by hyperemia and edema of the lungs.
intercellular substance
extracellular material occurring in large amounts in connective tissue; includes the intercellular matrix composed of fibrous and amorphous (glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans) components.

8] Hz)--current flow through the intercellular substance, cellular membranes and cellular contents and reflects the relaxation polarization of polar macromolecules, and is determined by their effective radii and viscosity of the medium, as well as the dielectric losses in the cell membranes--tangent the dielectric loss angle tg[delta] = [epsilon]"/[epsilon]' serving as a quantitative measure of the relative contribution of the electrically conductive and dielectric properties of the medium when the electromagnetic field interacts with it [5, 10].

It is also possible to change the resistance of cell membranes with a close arrangement of cells and the difficult passage of current through the intercellular substance because of the presence of small conductors of small bridges between the cell membranes that touch each other.
This assignment is facilitated due to the physiology, the particular anatomic positioning of this ganglion, and its histological formation, as it has (as the other cranial parasympathetic ganglia) abundant intercellular substance.
