Enough channels open, enough Na+ comes in to change the onside to about 50mV (threshold potential)
Change in charge opens voltage-regulated, gated channels; more Na+ floods in causing depolarization of 30mV
The change opens K+ gated channels; K+ floods out (Na+ gates close, no more Na+ in) K+ gates close slowly; Repolarization (inside becomes negative again)
