Action Potentials

Some articles on action potentials, potential, action potential, potentials:

Physiology - Low-threshold Spikes Generate Burst Firing
... This leads to tonic firing of action potentials ... with LTS and their associated bursts of action potentials ... depolarization of the neuron from the resting membrane potential ...
Amplitude Scaling Invariance - Neurological Bases - Pitch
... The hair cells in the cochlea release neurotransmitter as a result, causing action potentials down the auditory nerve ... receptive fields, rather than being strictly responsive or phase-locking their action potentials to narrow frequency regions ... in the early central auditory system is the phase-locking and mode-locking of action potentials to frequencies in a stimulus ...
Spike-and-wave - Pathophysiology
... corresponds to the depolarization of the neuronal membrane potential, also called a paroxysmal depolarizing shift (PDS) ... it was caused by a very large EPSP (excitatory postsynaptic potential) in the absence of synaptic inhibition, which relayed the action potentials in the neurons by triggering activation of voltage-gated channels ... sodium current into the cell, which generates the action potential ...
Cellular Neuroscience - Neuronal Function
... Neurons generate electrical impulses or changes in voltage of two types graded potentials and action potentials ... Graded potentials occur when the membrane potential depolarizes and hyperpolarizes in a graded fashion relative to the amount of stimulus that is applied to the neuron ... An action potential on the other hand is an all-or-none electrical impulse ...
Spike Sorting
... Neurons produce action potentials that are referred to as 'spikes' in laboratory jargon ... In these recordings action potentials appear as sharp spikes (deviations from the baseline) ... component due to the synaptic currents and the action potentials ...

Famous quotes containing the word action:

    It is funny that men who are supposed to be scientific cannot get themselves to realise the basic principle of physics, that action and reaction are equal and opposite, that when you persecute people you always rouse them to be strong and stronger.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
