Pacemaker Potential and Cardiac Channels Potassium channel K+ permeability decreases between action potentials Sodium channel Not voltage gated Slow inward leak between action potentials T-type calcium channel Transient, opens before membrane threshold is reached Opens in the second half of the pacemaker potential L-type calcium channel Opens when threshold is reached Responsible for the rising phase

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
