Countercurrent exchange in the fish gill helps to maximize
Tracheal systems for gas exchange are found in this organism
countercurrent exchange mechanism
The phenomenon that increases the gas exchange efficiency of fish gills
the volume of the thoracic cavity increases
Air rushes into the lungs of humans during inspiration
The volume of the thoracic cavity decreases
occurs with the exhalation of air from human lungs
The sodium-potassium pump of neurons pumps
Na+ out of the cell and K+ into the cell
After an action potential, resting potential restored
by the opening of voltage-sensitive potassium channels and the closing of sodium activation gate
