This unit is about the nerve impulse and its transmission. We will describe the resting potential and how action potential is generated when a stimulus is applied to the cell membrane. You will learn the “law of all or nothing”, the importance of nodes of Ranvier and the saltatory conduction to describe synapses and neurotransmitters.
