Definition A large, brief, all-or-nothing, regenerati A large, brief, all-or-nothing, regenerative electrical potential, that propagates along the axon, muscle fiber, or some dendrites. Action potentials are usually generated at the axon hillock and propagate uni-directionally down the axon. Adapted from Nicholls, Martin and Wallace 3rd edition. Nicholls, Martin and Wallace 3rd edition.
