Propagation of Action Potential

... action potential in neurons with these 5 phases :({1)Resting Potential 2)Threshold 3)Rising Phase 4)Falling Phase 5)Recovery} The currents flowing inwards at a point on the axon during an action potential spread out along the axon, and depolarize the adjacent sections of its membrane. If sufficiently ...
