Problem 36PE

Assuming one nerve impulse must end before another can begin, what is the maximum firing rate of a nerve in impulses per second?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 36PE

Step 1 of 3</p>

By assuming that one nerve impulse must end before another can begin, we need to calculate the maximum firing rate of a nerve impulses per second.  

Step 2 of 3</p>A nerve impulse is an electrical signal, that travels along an axon from the cell. It is also referred as the electrical signal that passes from the cell body along the length of axon to the synapse.

The existence of the nerve impulse is around,

According to the assumption made, each nerve impulse takes to reach the other end or in other words, every second one pulse will be generated.
