Each neuron has a million or so ATP powered Na±Kf exchange pumps built into the plasma membrane which enables it to keep conducting action potentials indefinitely. If for some reason ATP falls deficient in a nerve fibre, the conduction of nerve impulse is greatly affected. It will affect the amplitude and frequency of nerve impulse and action potential
