Physiology Test Question
In a typical vertebrate axon, the absolute refractory period is 1.0 ms and the relative refractory period is 4.0 ms. Thus, the axon is refractory for a total of 5.0 ms. If the axon is continuously stimulated with stimuli only large enough in amplitude to ensure excitation when the neuron is at rest, what is the highest frequency of action potentials that can be generated?
