Classical Descriptions Of The Action Potential

A. Electrochemical Potentials and Voltage-Dependent Membrane Conductances

Changes in electrical potential in excitable cells are driven by movement of ions through ion-specific membrane conductances. For a perfectly specific conductance G, the current across the membrane I = G x (Vm— Vn), where Vm is the electrical potential across the membrane and Vn is the equilibrium potential for the ion, given by the Nernst equation:
