Neurons are like batteries and they produce electricity from chemical reactions. Axon’s membrane fluid has mainly positively charged ions while a resting axon’s fluid has mainly negatively charged ions. This positive-outside/negative-inside feature is called resting potential.
The correct answer is C. (said to have a resting potential). When the neuron is in the resting position, the fluid on the outside of the membrane of the neuron`s axon is positively, while the fluid inside of the axon is negatively charged. When the neuron takes positively charged ions inside of its membrane, the transmission of neural impulses can take place again. Resting position, in which neuron is said to have a resting potential, follows the transmission.
