Unformatted text preview: Go to the next screen: At the peak, the sodium inactivation gates are closed and potassium gates have begun to open. The potassium gate is also voltage dependent. When the membrane reaches the polarization peak this gate opens to allow potassium to exit the cell. This gate is slower than the sodium activation gate and the sodium inactivation gate. Potassium flows out of the cell, repolarizing it (“unto '3 lmlarlllflon G0 to the next screen: Potassium gates are slow to close and while they are closing there occurs an after-hypelpolarization (called undershoot here).
