Abstract Instantaneous rectification in toad nodes, and its absence in squid axons, are discussed in terms of time-dependent, constant-field electrodiffusion. An initial linear current-voltage relation is obtained which persists for a characteristic potential-dependent time, followed by the familiar non-linear relation. An explicit expression for the characteristic time is obtained and used to explain the differing rectification properties of toad and squid membranes in terms of their permeabilities.
