  4. natural selection
  5. action potential
  1. a a measure of the extent to which two factors vary together, and thus of how well either factor predicts the other. The ____ coefficient is the mathematical expression of the relationship, ranging from -1 to +1
  2. b the principle that, among the range of inherited trait variations, those that lead to increased reproduction and survival will most likely be passed on to succeeding generations
  3. c a neural impulse; a brief electrical charge that travels down an axon. the ____ is generated by the movement of positively charged atoms in and out of channels in the axon's membrane
  4. d pure science that aims to increase the scientific knowledge base
  5. e a technique for ascertaining the self-reported attitudes or behaviors of people, usually by questioning a representative, random sample of them

5 Multiple choice questions
