Neurons are so Impulsive! (Day 2)

Unit 5: Neuron Structure and Function
Lesson 5 of 6

Objective: Students will develop and use a model to explain how nerve impulses are initiated, propagated and terminated along neurons.

Big Idea: Electrostimuation of a neuron requires the recruitment of specific chemicals or mechanical energy to stimulate it, intracellular and extracellular ions for its electrical propagation and the release of neurotransmitters to complete an action potential.
