Resting membrane potential is important to cells such as neurons and muscles as it plays an important role in the firing of action potential that triggers the nerve impulses and muscle contraction.
What is the importance of the resting membrane potential to cells such as neurons and muscles? What about other cells of the body? Do they also have a resting membrane potential?
