Pretty much what the text says. For the sake of simplicity let's imagine we have this scenario here:
Now my question is. Say we took the same myocardial fiber in a resting(polarized) state and gave it a STIMULUS but at a location past the HALF-WAY point and at the same time let's just imagine there was a BLOCK at the same level of the stimulus so that the depolarization wave couldn't go back towards the Negative electrode only towards the Positive electrode. Would it still give a positive deflection??
