The positive electrical charges are carried by the inward-diffusion of Na through the depolarized membrane and then for some millimeters in both directions along the axis of the axon. This leads to the increase of voltage in the adjacent 1 to 3 millimeters inside the myeli fiber to above a certain threshold level that leads to the generation of action potential in the adjacent regions which gradually spreads throughout the nerve cell through successive opening of Na channels. d Propagation of an action potential does not happen in an unidirectional fashion but throughout All or Nothing Principle: Upon action potential generation in a particular region of a cell the depolarization process travels throughout the membrane if all conditions are favorable or it does not travel if conditions are not right. This is called the all or nothing principle. the entirety of the cell whose entire membrane becomes depolarized. exchange of ions from the interior of the cell with the environment and such exchange can only occur through the nodes of Ranvier. Therefore, generation of action potential happens only at these nodes thus the action potential jumps from node to node. This mode of nenve impulse conduction is termed as saltatory conduction and greatly increases the speed Saltatory Conduction in Myelinated Neurons: The myelin sheath prevents the free The velocity of nerve impulse conduction is about 0.25 m/sec in non-myelinated fibers and 100 m/sec in myelinated fibers. of nerve impulse conduction by at least 5 to 50 folds. 33 an405800

    The nerve fibres are either depolarized or they are said to be in the action potential. The action potential travelling along the membrane is called the nerve impulse. It is around...
