Why are action potentials usually conducted in one direction?
a. Ions can flow along the axon in only one direction.
b. The brief refractory period prevents reopening of voltage-gated Na+ channels.
c. The axon hillock has a higher membrane potential than the terminals of the axon.
d. Voltage-gated channels for both Na+ and K+ open in only one direction.
