Transmission Of Nerve Impulses

  1. 1. Transmission of nerve impulses
  2. 2. axon
  3. 3. During a nerve impulse Na+ axon
  4. 4. During a nerve impulse K+ Na+ axon
  5. 5. Resting state More positive – outside axon Less positive - inside
  6. 6. During an action potential Na+ axon Less positive - inside
  7. 7. During an action potential Na+ axon Inside becomes DEPOLARISED
  8. 8. During an action potential Na+ axon Inside becomes DEPOLARISED Action potential is generated
