Second, how can you think productively about ethical and moral problems? What processes create them? Why do pe

Saltatory Conduction in Neurons
This 12 minute video is about saltatory conduction in neurons. Saltatory conduction works because of cytoplasm and the axon being electrically conductive. Because the cytoplasm and axon are electrically conductive, the myelin prevents electrical
charge to leak through the membrane. The video starts with a review and uses graphic cartoon images and a lecturer.
