  • 1 Four methods of determining the potential difference across the surface membrane of living cells are described. 2 In a wide range of excitable tissues the resting membrane potential is of the order of 50–100 mV. and the action potential of the order of 80–130 mV. 3 At the height of activity the potential difference across the membrane is reversed by 30–50 mV. 4 The potassium concentration inside most excitable cells is 20–50 times greater than that in the external medium; sodium is 3–15 times… CONTINUE READING
