Unformatted text preview: ion Resting potential doesnt change with Na+ Pulses that tend to depolarize the axon ^ Depolarization v Hyperpolarization strictly from the resting potential If you inject hyperpolarizing stimulus it can make the potential of the nerve more negative nothing special happens If you depolarize enough past this threshold the axon takes over it generates its own electrical signal All action potentials are the same size Threshold at -45 mV...
