The nerve signal, or action potential, is a coordinated movement of sodium and potassium ions across the nerve cell membrane. Here’s how it works:1. As we discussed, the inside of the cell is slightly negatively charged (resting membrane potential of -70 to -80 mV).2. A disturbance (mechanical, electrical, or sometimes chemical) causes a few sodium channels in a small portion of the membrane to open.3. Sodium ions enter the cell through the open sodium channels. The positive charge that they carry makes the inside of the cell slightly less negative (depolarizes the cell).4. When the depolarization reaches a certain threshold value, many more sodium channels in that area open. More sodium flows in and triggers an action potential. The inflow of sodium ions reverses the membrane potential in that area (making it positive inside and negative outside — the electrical potential goes to about +40 mV inside)
Your frogs legs are obviously twitching in excitement about being on the menu.
Yes, I have eaten them. They are quite good. Thanks for comments. Joe L. Ogan
Frog legs have a rather unique taste. It is somewhat like chicken or rabbot or somewhat like fish. I find it a little difficult to describe it exactly because it is different. Why don't yopu get some and try them. You will like it. Thanks for comments. Joe L. Ogan
