5 True/False Questions
Neuron → cylindrical structure that carries the neural impulse from soma to other neurons
Interneurons: → Neurons that convey information between neurons in the brain and spinal cord.
Synapse → junction between axon of sending neuron and dendrite of receiving neuron
Axon → cylindrical structure that carries the neural impulse from soma to other neurons
The Neural Impulse → 1. Threshold: the level of stimulation required to trigger a neural impulse in the receiving neuron.
2. Impulse travels from the soma down the axon to terminal button
3. At the terminal, vesicles move to the membrane, attach and release chemicals into the synapse
