This animation presents the ionic and molecular phenomena involved in the unidirectional propagation of an action potential along an amyelenic axon.
Use the controls at upper right to proceed through the presentation.
An action potential is a sudden, temporary inversion of a neuron’s membrane potential, resulting from a preliminary stimulation (of threshold value). The action potential propagates itself through…
