The plasma membrane acts as a ____, which means any change in the membrane potential would ___.1.Capacitor, change the amount of charges inside and outside of the membrane.2.Resister, slow down the charge movement across the membrane3.Conductor, move ions across the membrane4-7-11What would take for an action potential to generate?1.a local membrane depolarization2.a local membrane heperpolarization3.a change of the membrane potential to above the threshold potential4.a local circuit of currentThe raising phase of an action potential is resulted from:1.inactivation of the K leak channels,...
