Unformatted text preview: Longitudinal conductance: Resistance decreases as diameter increases (small axons have higher resistance and vice versa) Membrane conductance: Leaky membrane causes increased conductance (so the conductance is inverse of resistance. Leaky membrane has lower resistance which means higher conductance) And there is typo on the week 2 note: Cibotulinum (x) -> C.Botulinum (o) Best!!...
