Name the hormone of Action Potential and Resting Potential

Positively charged sodium ions, potassium ions and negatively charged chloride ions diffuse across the cell membrane. During resting potential, the membrane of the neuron has a negative charge compared to its surroundings. When the neuron is stimulated, the sodium gates are opened allowing positively charged sodium ions to enter the neuron, Thus, for a short period of time, the inside of the cell becomes positively charged. This creates an action potential which is carried forward in an axon. 
Neurotransmitters, such as acetylcholine, help in transmission of nerve impulses across the synapse.
