Unformatted text preview: decreases the force of the membrane capacitor. In myelinated axons, action potential is only regenerated at Nodes of Ranvier, resulting in faster conduction. Nodes of Ranvier occur about every 1-2 mm, why?-you need to have enough current to generate an action potential at a node of ranvier. -no voltage gated channels under the mylen, only at the node of ranvier....
