nerve impulse

sustantivo

A signal transmitted along a nerve fibre. It consists of a wave of electrical depolarization that reverses the potential difference across the nerve cell membranes.
Oraciones de ejemplo
  • The arrival of the nerve impulse, an electrical signal, at the axon activates the influx of calcium ions through voltage-dependent ion channels in the membrane.
  • After an action potential has swept along a single nerve fibre, a second nerve impulse cannot be initiated immediately.
  • It is the influx of sodium into the cell that is responsible for generating an action potential, which causes depolarization and conduction of the nerve impulse.
