Reference information: As I remember (fairly well) from neuropsychology courses many years ago, this is when the electricity in a neuron (nerve cell in the brain) reaches a high enough level to pass through the membrane of its nucleus and along its "axon" (root-like arms) to reach the "dendrites" of other neurons, thus dissipating the charge.
