AKA Graded Membrane Potential


The BEAM Glossary says:


A.  An idealized action potential illustrating its various phases. B.  Actual recordings of action potentials are often distorted compared to the schematic view because of variations in the techniques used to make the recording

  • A term from biology, referring to the self-regenerating wave of electrochemical activity that is initiated at the axon-hillock of a neuron or nerve cell and which propagates along the axon in a way that resembles a flame as it travels along a firecracker fuse. The action potential is the means by which information and control signals are sent from one neuron to other neurons, muscles, and/or glands.


NOTE: The passage of a process through a BEAM Nv network can rightly be compared to an action potential traveling from biological neuron to biological neuron.
