Would decreasing the internal resistance of an axon increase or decrease action potential velocity? 2. How does potassium permeability during an action poten-tial influence conduction velocity? 3. What is the difference between conduction velocity and transit time? 4. How would temperature change affect conduction velocity? 5. Does decreasing the diameter of an axon increase or decrease the internal axon resistance? file:///C|/WINWORD/COURSES/31107/Lec9-07.HTM8/15/2007 10:16:56 AM...
