5 Multiple Choice Questions
- A phenomenon of neural integration in which the membrane potential of the post-synaptic cell is determined by the combined effect of EPSPs or IPSPs produced nearly simultaneously by different synapses.
- The metabolic rate of a resting, fasting and non stressed endotherm at a comfortable temperature.
- The regulatory protein that control the position of tropomyosin on the thin filament.
- Tissue consisting of long muscle cells that can contract, either on its own or when stimulated by nerve impulses
- A specialized center of body function composed of several different types of tissues
5 True/False Questions
Metabolic Rate → A longitudinal bundle in a muscle cell (fiber) that contains thin filaments of actin and regulatory proteins and thick filaments of myosin
Anterior Pituitary → An extension of the hypothalamus composed of nervous tissue that secretes oxytocin and antidiuretic hormone made in the hypothalamus, temporary storage site for these hormones.
Complete Proteins → In a neuron, a shift in the membrane potential that has an amplitude proportional to signal strength and that decays as it spreads.
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.
Tissues → A type of motor protein that associates into filaments that interact with actin filaments to cause cell contraction
