Neurobiology question: K+ channels and repolarization

Post by lovejoypeace » Sat Sep 30, 2017 11:04 pm

Why does blocking both voltage gated potassium channels and potassium leak channels in the axon of a neuron DELAY repolarization to rest as opposed to completely preventing repolarization to rest? I am having trouble understanding this.
