Action-potential sentence example
Hodes  found a decrement of the compound muscle action potential amplitude on repetitive stimulation in patients with previous paralytic polio.
The arrival of an action potential in the interior of the cardiac muscle cell causes the release of calcium ions from the sarcoplasmic reticulum.
When an action potential reaches the synapse these channels open, causing calcium ions to flow into the cell.
The action potential can therefore jump large distances from node to node (1mm), a process that is called saltatory propagation.Advertisement
