BISC 307L 1st Edition Lecture 6 Current Lecture Action Potentials  Ionic Basis for Action Potentials o Na+ influxdepolarizationopening Na+ channels o both concentration gradient and electrical gradient are inward for Na+ and Ca2+ o This is how we are used to seeing it. This describes what the Action potential is doing in one little patch of membrane at multiple times o Voltage vs. time o  Action Potential Conduction o How the action potential functions ALONG the axon not as a function of time. o Voltage vs. distance along the axon o Middle is the action potential
