Thank you Reply Apurva Kumar Joshi says: March 1, 2019 at 8:40 am What a true privilege it is for us to get insights from one of the greatest in the field of research. Thanks so much for your great work and the presentation Reply Laurel Crosby says: October 10, 2019 at 7:34 pm I'm stuck on the basics- how does closing the K channel depolarize the membrane? It would help to see the K concentrations inside and outside of the cell, and what contributes to membrane polarization. Thanks!
