To fully reveal the physical nature of a neural signal is important for understanding the ways how neural signals are generated and transmitted. Compared with the cable model and electromechanical model, the emerging electromagnetic model attracted much attention in recent years [1-5], as it states that neural signals travel in axons are more like pulses of electromagnetic (EM) waves travelling in EM waveguides, rather than ionic currents transporting in cables.
