Impulse transmission, Biology

The conduction of impulse in a nerve fibre is. a electrochemical process. Maximum speed of transmission of nerve impulse can be 13 metre/second due to axoplasm is much resistant to current flow. Impulse conduction depends upon-

1 Permeability of axon membrane.

2 Osmotic equilibrium among axoplasm and E.C.F.

3.Electrical equivalence among axoplasm and E.C.F.
