I have to make a diagram of a neuron and label the given parts. I have it all finished except for sodium and potassium. I asked my teacher and he said they go in the action potential. I am not sure which one goes where though. I think the sodium is outside and the potassium is inside but then something changes in the action potential right?

    This is a nice animation, and short quiz. Sodium and potassium are both inside and outside, but in different amounts.
