How This Key Event Works

?


The quick rise and fall of an electrical membrane potential of a cell, known as an action potential, is either diminished or eliminated.


How It Is Measured or Detected

?



Evidence Supporting Taxonomic Applicability

?


Action potentials are found throughout multicellular organisms (plants, invertebrates, and vertebrates). Sponges are multicellular eukaryotes that do not transmit action potentials.
