In majority of nerve cells, action potential decreases with an increase in temperature.But a couple of papers I have looked at say some nerve behave in the opposite manner (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/20077389/). So I was wondering what the biology was behind it.

  • $\begingroup$ Can you cite both results rather than just one? Additionally, can you clarify what the change in temperature is relative to? What organism are these neurons from, and are the differences in temperature within or outside physiological ranges? And what about action potentials are "increasing" or "decreasing". "Action potential decreases" is not a meaningful grammatical statement. $\endgroup$ – Bryan Krause Aug 28 '20 at 15:12
