    Ionic mechanisms underlying history-dependence of conduction delay in an unmyelinated axon

    Yang Zhang et al.
    Conduction velocity of action potentials in unmyelinated axons depends ultimately on the gating variables of the fast voltage-gated sodium current and can be predicted from the action potential peak and trough voltages.
