- Central Nervous System (CNS)
- Parasympathetic Division
- IPSP (Inhibitory post-synaptic potential)
- a One of the three divisions of the autonomic nervous system, generally enhances body activities that gain and conserve energy, such as digestion and reduced heart-rate, decrease breathing, storing glycogen for energy in the liver
- b The portion of the nervous system where signal integration occurs; in vertebrate animals, the brain and spinal cord
- c An evolutionary trend toward the concentration of sensory equipment at the anterior end of the body.
- d 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
- e ...
5 Multiple choice questions
- In a neuron, a shift in the membrane potential that has an amplitude proportional to signal strength and that decays as it spreads.
- Wrapped around the axon of a neuron, an insulating coat of cell membranes from Schwann cells or oligodendrocytes. It is interrupted by nodes of Ranvier, where action potentials are generated
- The metabolic rate of a resting, fasting and non stressed endotherm at a comfortable temperature.
- The fundamental, repeating unit of striated muscle, delimited by the Z lines
5 True/False questions
Myosin → A type of motor protein that associates into filaments that interact with actin filaments to cause cell contraction
Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) → The portion of the nervous system where signal integration occurs; in vertebrate animals, the brain and spinal cord
Tropomyosin → The regulatory protein that blocks the myosin-binding sites on actin molecules
Hypothalamus → An organism that is warmed by heat generated by their own metabolism, Heat usually maintains a relatively stable body temperature higher than that of the external environment.
Synapse → A specialized center of body function composed of several different types of tissues
