Action potential conduction in nerve cells

In this video, action potential generation and conduction in a nerve cell is described.An action potential is a short-lasting event that occurs in several types of specialized cells, called excitable cells. These cells include neurons, muscle cells, and endocrine cells. During an action potential, electrical membrane potential of a cell rapidly rises and falls, following a consistent trajectory.
