Neuron Electrical Activity

Neuron Electrical Activity Graph of the Change in Millivolts during the Event While the neuron is resting, it’s the resting potential that tells all the activities that take place in it. Once the neuron sends information via the axon away from the cell body, action potential now takes place. Therefore, it’s the depolarizing current that creates an explosion of neuron electrical activity that leads to an action potential. Also, it’s the event that forces the resting potential to move from its position towards 0 mV. The threshold is reached when depolarization reaches -55 mV and hence firing an action potential. The threshold is a most important level since no action potential can happen...

Name of the Student Professor’s Name Subject 14th November, 2015 Anatomical and Functional Features of Skeletal Muscle The smallest unit of contraction of skeletal muscle is called a muscle fiber. Various muscle fibers assemble to form muscle fasciculus. There are various connective tissues that cover these muscle parts.
