  Wikipedia: Action potential
In his discovery of "animal electricity," Luigi Galvani elicited an action potential through contact of his scalpel with the sciatic motor nerve of a frog he was dissecting, causing one of its legs to kick as in life.
Because the salty cytoplasm of the axon is electrically conductive, and because the myelin inhibits charge leakage through the membrane, depolarization at one node is sufficient to elevate the voltage at a neighboring node to the threshold for action potential initiation.
Action potentials are measured with the recording techniques of electrophysiology.

 Action potential - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
While the cell is at resting cell potential the electric forces between the sodium and potassium of the neuron is counterbalanced by the "diffusive forces," creating a state of equilibrium.
The depolarization phase of an action potential is due to the opening of voltage-gated ion channels, either sodium channels or calcium channels or a combination of both, depending on the particular membrane.
Where membrane has undergone an action potential a refractory period follows, during which a second action potential is inhibited due to the reversible inactivation of ion channels.

 Ventricular action potential - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
At rest, the ventricular myocyte membrane potential is about -90 mV, which is close to the potassium reversal potential.
The beginning of the action potential, phase 1, specialized membrane proteins (voltage-gated sodium channels) in the cell membrane selectively allow sodium ions to enter the cell.
Repolarization is accomplished by channels that open slowly and are mostly activated at the end of the action potential (slow delayed-rectifier channels), and channels that open quickly but are inactivated until the end of the action potential (fast delayed rectifier channels).

 Action potential - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The potential difference across the membrane at rest is called the resting potential and is approximately -70 mV in neurons, with the negative sign indicating that the inside of the cell is negative with respect to the outside.
Establishment of a membrane potential of around +40 mV closes the voltage-sensitive inactivation gates of the sodium channels, which are sensitive to the now-positive membrane potential gradient, preventing further influx of sodium.
Thus the membrane potential dips below the normal resting membrane potential of the cell for a brief moment; this dip of hyperpolarization is known as the undershoot.

 Cardiac Action Potential
The fact that a cardiac action potential is long implies that the refractory period is long too.
Thus it opens as an action potential ends, which between action potentials keeps the membrane potential down much closer to the K+ equilibrium potential and thus a long way from the threshold.
Below you see the action potential in an SA node and the times that four voltage gated ion channels are open.
