have voltage-reg. gates along the entire axolemma
when APs occur at the trigger zone:
Na+ enters and diffuses to adjacent areas
opening voltage gates just distal to the AP
Na+ and K+ gates open and close as at the trigger zone
this excites the membrane just distally
chain reaction travels to the end of the axon
relatively slow in unmyelinated axons
