Action potential of muscles
Ions (charge elements) build up until Na+ (sodium) gathers outside the membrane K+ (Potassium) gathers inside the membrane A signal from another nerve opens the channels, and the Na+ rushes in. K+ rushes out. This repeats jumping down the nerves. At the end of the nerve, Acetylcholine has been building up. When the impulse reaches the neuromuscular junction, Acetylcholine channels are open, allowing it to rush out and trigger a muscle contraction.
Reflection: Explain in your own words the biology definition of impulse.
