Neurons are so Impulsive! (Day 1)

Unit 5: Neuron Structure and Function
Lesson 4 of 6

Objective: Students will develop and use a model to explain the role of Schwann cells and myelination in action potential activity.

Big Idea: Schwann cells and myelin sheaths on neurons possess insulative properties which enhance the neuron's capability to generate, sustain and propagate an electrical signal along the axon to communicate with neighboring cells.
