Action potential generation
Action potential generation is the process by which a neuron rapidly depolarizes from a negative resting potential to a more positive potential, and is achieved by influx of cations (sodium ions or calcium ions) through ion channels. It occurs at the action potential initiation zone region of the soma, and is propagated along the axon to downstream targets.
