from memory voltages are less than 100mV and speed of transmission is about 100 M/S
The suggested 100mV is correct. The "resting" membrane potential of a nerve cell is about -70mV i.e. the cell interior is negative with respect to the external milieu. When the nerve cell fires an action potential this voltage increases to +30mV, a total displacement of 100mV.Chris
