It is the "skipping" pattern that impulses follow to travel down nerve axons.
Saltatory conduction is made possible by gaps in the myelin sheath (called nodes of Ranvier) along the axon, which allow for the action potential to "jump" from one node to the other, increasing conduction velocity.
It is called saltatory conduction. This describes the "jumping" of an action potential from node to node on a myelinated axon.
Saltatory conduction refers to the propagation of action potentials along myelinated axons from one node of Ranvier to the next node. It increases the conduction velocity of action potentials.
No. I advise you to look up what saltatory conduction is so you will understand why not rather than coming here to get the answers to your homework.
the myelin sheath
saltatory conduction Saltatory conduction is derived from the Latin word saltare, which means leaping
Saltatory conduction is made possible by myelinated nerve fibers. This is the means through which one node of Ranvier will communicate with the next.
Saltory conduction only occurs in the myelinated axons.
