Basic Principle of Nerve Action

The basic principle of all nerve impulses and nerve functions is the production of an action potential across neuronal membrane. The action potential is a sudden and transient overshoot of membrane potential of neuronal membrane from the resting value of —60 to —70 to 20 mV or more, caused by an electrical, chemical, or mechanical agent. The action potential is conducted along the axon and then transmitted to the next neuron and finally to the target tissue. The response of the target tissue is specific to the chemical substances that mediate this transmission (the neurotransmitters).
