Hello! Thanks for reading the article.

The ion channels do open randomly. To compensate the change in potentials across the neuron membrane, the ion channels open and close to permit the movement of ions.

The Na+ channels open prior to the K+ channels to because the activation kinetics are quicker for a Na+ ion in comparison to the K+ ion.

The chemical concentration establishes the membrane potential which is -70 mv.
