In biology, the action potential is an electrical impulse that is formed in the body of a neuron and moves down the axon to the synapse. The action potential is the result of the cell moving ions in and out of the cell. Specifically, it involves Potassium (K+) and Sodium (Na+). The ions are moved in and out of the cell by potassium channels, sodium channels and the sodium-potassium pump.
