In this lesson you will learn about neurons' ability to generate signals called action potentials, and biophysics of voltage-gated ion channels.
Topics covered in this lesson
- Non-linear, voltage-dependent conductances
- Voltage gating mechanisms
- Voltage-dependent sodium and potassium channels
- Sample calculations on single channel conductance, 'explosive' depolarizing sodium conductance, and stabilizing potassium conductance
