Action Potentials Explored Contents
- Introduction: Sensing Pain
- Section 1. Neurons Communicate
Neurons rapidly transmit information over long distances in a series of electrical pulses called action potentials.
- Section 2. Ion Movement
The action potential is generated by the movement of sodium and potassium ions across the cell membrane through voltage-gated ion channels.
- Section 3. Action Potentials Challenge
An experimental section for further exploration of action potentials.
- Section 4. Graded Questions
