English term or phrase: Excitatory input
There were some concepts that you seemed to have trouble with, such as the ways in which ion channels in neurons change the membrane potential and lead to action potentials in response to excitatory input.

Spanish translation:estímulo excitador
Explanation:
Supongo que aquí el problema podía ser el input que se refiere a la información de entrada (el estímulo) que provoca los cambios en el potencial de membrana y como consecuencia el potencial de acción que transmite la información a lo largo de la neurona. Hay estímulos excitadores y estímulos inhibidores, por lo que los potenciales también son a su vez excitadores o inhibidores.
