I know what absolute refractory period means.
I do know what relative refractory period means.
However, I could never understand what effective refractory period means.
Can anybody help??

ARP is when an action potential cannot be caused no matter how strng d stimulus.whereas ERP is wen d normal stimulus which is conducted frm d normal surroundin tissue cannot cause depolarisation.


  #3

sry not normal stimulus.any stimulus obtained frm d surroundin cells i guess.


  #4

erp &arp are similar that they donot allow action potential to stimulate muscle however high may be the stimulus.
what we should remeber is the fact that
ERP>ARP
God knows why?
