5 Matching questions

  1. Essential Nutrients
  2. Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)
  3. Spatial Summation
  4. Troponin
  5. Temporal Summation
  1. a The metabolic rate of a resting, fasting and non stressed endotherm at a comfortable temperature.
  2. b The regulatory protein that control the position of tropomyosin on the thin filament.
  3. c A phenomenon of neural integration in which the membrane potential of the post-synaptic cell in a chemical synapse is determined by the combined effect of EPSPs or IPSPs produced in rapid succesion
  4. d A substance that an organism cannot synthesize from any other material and therefore must absorb in preassembled.
  5. e 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.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. The potential that an excitable cell membrane must reach for an action potential to be initiated
  4. One of the tree divisions of the autonomic nervous system; generally increases energy expenditure and prepares the body for action (Fight or Flight) - causes increase in heart rate, breathing, slows digestion, liver releases glucose, inhibits emptying of bladder, releases adrenaline from adrenal medulla situations:(emergency, embarrassment, exercise, excitement)
  5. A portion of the pituitary that develops from nonneural tissue, consists of endocrine cells that synthesize and secrete several tropic and non tropic hormones
