5 True/False Questions
IPSP (Inhibitory post-synaptic potential) → An electrical change (usually hyperpolarization) in the membrane of a post-synaptic neuron caused by the binding of an inhibitory neurotransmitter from a presynaptic cell to a post synaptic receptor; makes it more difficult for a post-synaptic neuron to generate an action potential
Nervous Tissue → Animal tissue that functions mainly to bind and support other tissues, having a sparse population of cells scattered through an extracellular matrix
Incomplete Proteins → A hormone that has an endocrine gland or cells as a target.
Hypothalamus → The ventral part of the vertebrate forebrain; functions in maintaining homeostasis, especially in coordinating the endocrine and nervous systems; secretes hormones of the posterior pituitary and releasing factors that regulate the anterior pituitary
EPSP (Exitatory post-synaptic potential) → An electrical change (depolarization) in the membrane of a post-synaptic cell caused by the binding of an excitatory neurotransmitter from a presynaptic cell to a post-synaptic cell; makes it more likely for a post-synaptic cell to generate an action potential.
