Impulse propagation/local circuits and repolarisation

I'm a little confused about repolarisation and its link with local circuits. As far as i'm aware, repolarisation is due to K+ channels opening, thus outflow causes a fall back to membrane potential. Local circuits are caused because, the influx of sodium ...

Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

... and (this is important) the shape and location of a microtubule array is not determined by its units. An analogy may help explain Electronic circuits are composed of many components, such as resistors, capacitors, and transistors. But these lower-level components do not determine their own ...

DNA = Chromosome

Jack, I stand corrected there are 46 in each cell. David 24 strings and 24 circuits. Gavin you are a wanker. None of you are open minded enough to look at what I am trying to share, all you have done during this forum is what is called one up man ship. http://www.biology-on ...

DNA = Chromosome

Sharan your math really doesnt add up. If every cell has many copies of chromosomes then how can 24 circuits be enough for all of them.
