Please compare and contrast the electrochemical events involved in the initiation and propagation of an action potential with the electrochemical events involved with the initiation of muscle contraction in skeletal muscle. Be sure to describe the electrochemical changes in the axon and sarcolemma as well as how the change spreads along the surface of the cells.
