What determines the conduction velocity, i.e., how fast action potentials move along the axon membrane?. 1. Large diameter (like the squid\'s giant axon) favors rapid conduction. Why? The resistance of current flow in the center of the axon becomes smaller as the diameter becomes larger.2. Insulati
