a resting nerve cell has an electrical gradient across the cell membrane due to what?

Apr 7th, 2015

This voltage, called theresting membrane potential, depends on the type of neuron being examined, but it is always a fraction of a volt (typically -40 to -90 mV).

Action potentials represent transient changes in the resting membrane potential of neurons. One way to elicit an action potential is to pass electrical current across the membrane of the neuron.
