The resting membrane potential in neurons requires: a. membrane transport channels to be constantly open for Na + and K + flow. b. the inside of neurons to be positive relative to the outside. c. the diffusion of K + out of the cell and a charge difference between the inside and outside of the axon set up by this movement of K + . d. an active Na + /K + pump, which pumps Na + and K + into the neuron. e. three Na + ions to be pumped through three Na + gates and two K + ions to be pumped through two K + gates.

The resting membrane potential in neurons requires:

a. membrane transport channels to be constantly open for Na+ and K+ flow.

b. the inside of neurons to be positive relative to the outside.

c. the diffusion of K+ out of the cell and a charge difference between the inside and outside of the axon set up by this movement of K+.

d. an active Na+/K+ pump, which pumps Na+ and K+ into the neuron.

e. three Na+ ions to be pumped through three Na+ gates and two K+ ions to be pumped through two K+ gates.
