Potenciales de membrana

Las células nerviosas y musculares tienen la propiedad de ser células excitables, o sea que pueden:

Generar potenciales eléctricos y en muchos casos Transmitirlos como señales a lo largo de sus membranas.

¿Cómo se genera un potencial de membrana?

Los potenciales de membrana básicamente se generan con la participación de 2 iones principales:

• Na+ • K+

Estos iones difunden a través de la MEMBRANA CELULAR SEMIPERMEABLE de estas células (nerviosas y musculares), siguiendo las reglas de la difusión:

CARGA ELÉCTRICA: Los iones de cargas opuestas se atraen y los de carga similares se repelen.

CONCENTRACIÓN: Las partículas separadas por una membrana permeable difunden a través de la membrana siguiendo su gradiente de concentración, siempre tendiendo a igualar la concentración a ambos lado de la membrana.

O sea que:


El Sodio tiene carga positiva y se encuentra en mayor concentración fuera de las células, por lo tanto ambas fuerzas crean una tendencia al sodio de entrar en las células.

El Potasio tiene carga positiva, por lo que tiende a entrar hacia la célula (con carga negativa), sin embargo su gradiente de concentración es mayor dentro de las células por lo tanto también tiene una tendencia a salir.
Sin embargo al sumar las fuerzas que tienden a hacer entrar estos iones y hacerlos salir obtenemos que (OJO, acá solo hablamos de tendencias):


¿Cómo se distribuyen las cargas eléctricas dentro de una célula?



El potencial de membrana de las fibras nerviosas en reposo (cuando no transmiten señales) es aproximadamente – 90 mV, y este voltaje es generado por:

• BOMBA DE Na+/K+: Produce gradientes de concentración de estos iones en la…...

...needed Newton and Newton, in turn, relied on Aristotle. The history of social, political and technological change is inextricably bound to the history of thought. To some it has often seemed that modern philosophy is both undervalued and overlooked. They should not be so concerned. In the wider sense philosophical reflection is a natural enterprise concomitant with our inquiries on any level. It is not solely the province of specialists, but an intrinsic and indispensable part of a person’s navigation through life. If Hamlet is right, Horatio’s only response is to continue to expand the limits of his thought, in other words, to continue to dream.

... WHAT IS THE ESSENTIAL ACTIVITY OF CHRISTIAN MINISTRY? Submitted to Dr. D. P. Moosbrugger DSMN-500 – Discipleship Ministry Jacqueline Thornton Bryan, TX May 26, 2013 TABLE OF CONTENTS INTRODUCTION………………………………………………………………………1 EDUCATION, DISCIPLESHIP, AND SPIRITUAL FORMATION…………………..1 CHURCH MINISTRY PRIORITY……………………………………………………..4 WORSHIP CONNECTION…………………………………………………………….5 CONCLUSION…………………………………………………………………………6 BIBLIOGRAPHY………………………………………………………………………7 Introduction As a youth leader working with different age groups, the question of what constitutes the essential activity of Christian ministry is a critic alone. The drive can be to simply educate about the Bible in a Christian setting, to drive spiritual foundation or to nurture discipleship of Jesus Christ. What is really important is to establish what really separates these theories or whether there is significant similarity. While many answers about education have been developed and published by nonspiritual authors, finding answers in the Christian setting require a rather different considerations as the spiritual aspect is a part. God is difficult to comprehend in scientific evaluation, however we can evaluate answers to the quest for an answer based on what Scripture teaches. In Chapter 1 of our text Mitchell states “Jesus expected his disciples to follow him, experience life change, and participate in something remarkable” (p 3). So in order to evaluate the statement “The essential activity of......

Essential Environment

...Essential Environment Abstract When European explorers reached Easter Island in 1722, they "found a barren landscape populated by fewer than 2,000 people." This was amid evidence that there was once sophisticated civilization on the island. Indeed, further studies found that the island was once lushly forested, supporting a society of 6,000 to 30,000 people. Evidence indicates that "this once-flourishing civilization overused its resources and cut down all its trees, destroying itself in a downward spiral of starvation and conflict. Today, Easter Island stands as a parable and a warning for what can happen when a population consumes too much of the limited resources that support it." Using the scientific method, analyze and prepare a report on the story of Easter Island. In your report, include responses to the following questions: Observation: What were some of the key observations at Easter Island? Hypothesis: What hypothesis was formed as a result of the observations? Results: What were the results and conclusions after applying the scientific method? Do you agree with the assertion that Easter Island holds important lessons for our world today, regarding the use of natural resources? Why or why not? Support your answer with examples.

Education Is Essential

...Education is essential for everyone. It is the level of education that helps people earn respect and recognition. In my opinion, it is indispensable part of life both personally and socially. However, the unequal standard of education is still a major problem that needs to be solved. The importance of education is undeniable for every single person. It goes without saying that education has a positve effect on human life. All people need to study. Only with the advent of education can people gain knowledge and enlarge their view over the world. For example, learning by watching TV or reading books gives people a huge amount of information about anything they are interested in such as mathematics, current news, exchange rates, other countries' cultures and so on. Apparently, people may become more useful and civilzed if better educated. In areas where residents are not able to receive an appropriate education, life cannot be as thriving and properous as locations where there is a high standard for education. Secondly, education plays such a rudimentary role on our society that we cannot even imagine a life without it. It is a determined element for the civilization of human society. Not only does It helps us develop healthy surroundings but it also generates an advance community. As a matter of fact, everything we create today is based on the knowledge that we obtain throughout our life by way of education. This assists scientists in inventing equipment and devices,......

... INNATE AND ADAPTIVE IMMUNITY: Compare and Contrast the Biological Processes Underlying Innate and Adaptive Immunity By (name) Course: Instructor: University: City/State: Date Compare and Contrast the Biological Processes Underlying Innate and Adaptive Immunity In the biology Immunology field, immunity is defined as the balanced state of a living organism for instance, the human body having sufficient biological defenses to combat infection, illness, or other unwanted biological incursion, while having acceptable tolerance to avoid contamination and allergies (Sompayrac, 2012, p.5). The immune system is a group of cells, nerves, and molecules that defend the body from many pathogenic microorganisms and contaminants in the environment. These defenses against microorganisms have been alienated into two broad categories of reactions, which are responses of innate immunity and those of adaptive immunity. Consequently, innate and adaptive immunity can be perceived as two similarly significant aspects of the immune system. This paper aims to highlight and assess the differences concerning innate and adaptive immunity despite them serving a similar function in human immunology. Immunology has conventionally allocated the immune system into innate and adaptive mechanisms with dissimilar functional roles (Sompayrac, 2012, p. 6). The first comparison is placed in their definition of function where the innate immune system is comprised of cells and proteins that are constantly......

...Immunology of Pediatric (HIV) Unit 1 Assignment 1 (GE257) Ashley Pernell September 21, 2015 HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus where the body has a hard time fighting off infections and disease. If left untreated it can lead to AIDS. The human body cannot get rid of HIV. That means that once you have HIV, you have it for life. Most children who are born to mothers who have HIV do not become infected with this virus. In the case that they do become infected, their response to treatment varies depending upon the timing and potentially the route of their infection. (Tobin & Aldrovandi, 2013) The majority of pediatric HIV infection occurs via mother-to-child transmission at three points: in utero, intrapartum, or through breast milk. Most children born to women with high levels of HIV and low numbers of CD4+ T-cells do not become infected. Even when primary HIV infection occurs during pregnancy, 80% of children escape infection. (Tobin & Aldrovandi, 2013) Utero transmission is mother to baby transmission of HIV during pregnancy. This transmission may occur if there is damage to the placenta and blood from the mother contact the fetus. During the third trimester of pregnancy, maternal immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies are transplacentally transferred. The antibodies are associated with infant safeguard against a variety of microbes. Most utero transmission infections occur a few weeks before the delivery. The HIV in these infants is different from......

Gospel Essentials

...Christian World View: Gospel Essentials Our worldview allows us to see into the world at such an angle that it coincides with our beliefs, therefore affecting how we think and live. Whether one falls under an atheistic, pantheistic, or theistic worldview, they are guided in their life choices depending on the beliefs of their worldview. Throughout this paper, I will summarize the elements of a Christian Worldview such as God, Humanity, Jesus, and Restoration; I will then analyze questions one might have about the Christian Worldview, and finally I will reflect on my worldview. God God is our creator; He came before us and created the universe as we know it. “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1 NIV). “The origin of the universe began with God, and began with great wisdom.” (“Lecture 2”, 2015) This makes true the statement from Lecture 2 God is a sovereign creator. Along with being sovereign, God possesses many other impressive characteristics. Through the Bible, He is described as a loving God (John 3), a faithful God (Psalms 36), a righteous God (Psalms 145), and a merciful God (Ephesians 2). God can also be described as omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. He is everything and everywhere. This is in part because God is a triune being, three persons in one Godhead; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Christians believe that God is profoundly Love. The Father’s love for the Son; then Father and Son both have a mutual...

Essential Protocol

...Essential Network Protocols Modern computer networking leverages many components to enable computers on one network (or opposite side of the world) to communicate with a computer on a different network (or other side of the world). Of the components that enable network communication, there are several in the TCP/IP suite of protocols that work in the background to provide reliable Internet connection and data transport every day for millions of computers worldwide. Internet protocol or IP is an essential component of modern internetwork communication. IP is a connectionless protocol that provides neither fault tolerance nor error correction. It is also not responsible for the setup or teardown of network communications. The primary job assigned to IP is logical addressing and routing as it resides at layer 3 (the Network layer) of the OSI model. While every host on the network has a hardware address (also called a MAC address), hosts can only communicate with other hosts in the same broadcast domain using MAC addressing. For internetwork communication, a logical, unique network address is required so that the devices forwarding network traffic (primarily routers), can determine the source and destination and best route to forward data packets. The ARP or Address Resolution Protocol enables devices on a single network, in a single broadcast domain, to find the hardware or MAC address of a device on the network given the IP......
