The advantage of using KCl is that the mobilities of the K ions with outward current and of the Cl~ ions with inward current are very similar, which has the desirable consequence that the liquid junction potential is quite small, of the order of 4 mV between the 3 M KCl electrode and axoplasm (Cole and Moore, 1960). The contact between the fluid bridge in the pipette and the electronic recording apparatus is usually made by immersing an Ag-AgCl wire in the electrolyte. Since the silver-silver chloride electrode is not in contact with biological fluid and since, due to the large contact area, the current density is very small, this electrode is reversible.

This impedance can be expressed as the parallel combination of a large resistance and small capacitance. The resistance is concentrated at the tip and depending on the tip diameter can vary from a few megohms to several hundred megohms. The shunt capacitance is the resultant of distributed capacitance along the fluid-immersed shank of the electrode. If one is recording highly localized electrical events from regions near the electrode tip, then the shunt capacitance can be combined with the capacitance of the connecting wire to ground.

Considering the complex structure of the membranous labyrynth, this assumption clearly does not represent reality. The inhomogeneity of the medium is primarily manifested in that the two recording electrodes see any source through complex, and not necessarily equal, impedances. Thus an apparent imbalance between the recording electrodes could occur at certain frequencies. The imbalances would be manifested by incomplete cancellation of remote activity and asymmetrical pickup of local activity. A single electrode of great importance is the round-window electrode.
