5 Matching questions

  1. what are examples of excitatory transmission?
  2. what are examples of inhibitory transmission?
  3. microglia
  4. signal sent to synaptic bulb will release ____ to diffuse across _____
  5. dendrites
  1. a thin, branched processes whose main function is to receive incoming signals; effectively increase surface area of neuron to increase ability to communicate with other neurons; small, mushroom-shaped dendritic spines further increase surface area
  2. b Ach, norepinephrine, epinephrine, dopamine
  3. c specialized immune cells that act as macrophages (disease eaters) of CNS
  4. d serotonin, GABA, endorphins & enkephalins
  5. e NT; synaptic cleft

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. produce myelin sheath-provides electrical insulation for certain neurons in CNS
