Membrane Potential

Neurons – Electrical Charge called membrane potential

Na-K Pump

  • Specialized transport protein in cell membranes

  • Ions: Charged Particles Na+ has missing electron

  • Ion+Protien -> Changes shape of protein

All or Nothing Law

  • Axon either produces action potential or it does not

  • For action potential – Threshold must be reached

  • If not, neuron will not fire

  • Similar to firing of GUN

  • After firing, cannot fire or 1 to 2 millisecond – Absolute Refractory Period

  • Then Relative Refractory Period - Neuron will fire only if stimulus is too strong
