Anatomy Final CH. 12

Question:
local potentials are what?
Answer:
graded (vary in magnitude)
decremental (get weaker as they spread from the point of stim)
reversible (if stim ends potassium diffusion out of the cell quickly returns the membrane voltage to RMP)
hyperpolarizes (makes the membrane more negative)
