Physiology Final

Question:
Characteristics of Graded Potentials:
Answer:
1. Can result in hyperpolarization (inhibitory) or depolarization (excitatory)
2. Amplitude (voltage) is proportional to stimulus strength.
3. Degrade over the length of a membrane.
4. Summation: the closer successive STIMULI, the greater amplitude the graded potential.
