along the axon

  • The currents flowing in due to an action potential spread out in both directions along the axon.
  • This can result in a signal that runs along the axon and can be passed along a neural network (see action potential).
  • Proteins are synthesized within the cell body, and hence they must travel along the axon to reach their final destination.
  • This increases sodium's ability to travel along the axon more freely.
  • The abundance of katanin in the neurons show they can move along the axon.
  • Regeneration of action potentials must be repeated many times along the axon by ion channel molecules.
  • An electrochemical wave called an action potential travels along the axon of a neuron.
  • Once this threshold is reached a signal is passed along the axon of the neuron into the spinal cord.
  • Retrograde transport uses a protein called dynein to move viruses along the axon in the retrograde direction.
  • Anterograde transport uses a protein called kinesin to move viruses along the axon in the anterograde direction.
  • In order for an action potential to travel along the axon of a nerve cell, a spike-like voltage change must occur across the axon membrane.
  • The action potential generated at the axon hillock propagates as a wave along the axon.
  • The secretory granules are also stored in packets along the axon called Herring bodies.
  • Transport of the viral particles along the axon was shown to depend on the microtubular cytoskeleton.
  • The currents flowing inwards at a point on the axon during an action potential spread out along the axon, and depolarize the adjacent sections of its membrane.
  • Typical indications for surgery are if the patient who presented with a laceration has no conduction along the axon, signal transmitted across the nerve, or does not recover within a week.
  • When the cumulative postsynaptic potential exceeds the resting potential, an action potential is generated by the cell body or soma and propagated along the axon.
  • As a rule of thumb, the activating function is proportional to the second-order spatial derivative of the extracellular potential along the axon.
  • Mechanical tension occurs when the membrane is stretched due to force generation by molecular motors in the growth cone and strong adhesions to the substrate along the axon.
  • If the change in electrical potential is large enough to pass the given threshold, it evokes an action potential, which is transmitted along the axon of the receptor cell, into the spinal cord.
