AP speed of non-myelinated axons


Recommended Posts

I have in my textbook a formula for calculating speed of action potential in myelinated axons which is V=k*d where the k is myelination constant and d is diameter of axon.


But there is nothing said about non-myelinated axons. I think i read something somewhere about V=square(k)*d but i am not sure.


If you know something more write . Thank you! :)
