Neurophysiology is a study of neurons, nerves, and nervous systems, what they do and how they do it. A neuron is a cell that is specialized in two of the fundamental properties of living matter, namely excitability and conductivity. Excitability is the ability to respond to changes in the environment.

By Michael D. Mann, Ph.D.,
from the Internet version of his textbook “The Nervous System In Action”.

The author includes discussions of the structure and properties of excitable membranes, the origins and characteristics of the membrane potential and the action potential, and nerve conduction.
The topic is divided in two parts:
Part a:“Properties of excitable membranes – The membrane potential”
Part b:“Properties of excitable membranes – The Spike”.
