- a What is the name of the velocity of the action potential along a neural membrane?
- b Form the supportive framework for the nervous tissue; contact and stimulate blood capillaries; convert blood glucose; secret proteins; regulate chemical composition of tissue fluid
- c Another name for the action potential in neurons.
- d one axon and multiple dendrites; efferent neurons and interneurons are multipolar
- e Phagocytize and destroy microorganisms, foreign matter, and dead nervous tissue
5 Multiple choice questions
- one single process leading away from the soma; afferent neurons are unipolar
- The ability to respond to stimuli and convert them into nerve impulses
- What is the resting membrane potential of a frog?
- The membrane has become more negative than resting potential. Until the channels close.
- Difference in electrical charge across the plasma membrane. The membrane would be POLARIZED.
5 True/False questions
Nissl Bodies → a bundle of nerve processes
Interneuron → neuron serving as part of the conduction pathway between sensory and motor neurons; association neurons
Ependymal Cells → Phagocytize and destroy microorganisms, foreign matter, and dead nervous tissue
Absolute Refractory Period → What period is it when the sodium ion channels are open, the membrane is totally insensitive to additional stimuli, regardless of the force of the stimulus?
Oligodendrocytes → Form the myelin in the brain and spinal cord
