- a The ability to respond to stimuli and convert them into nerve impulses
- b The membrane has become more negative than resting potential. Until the channels close.
- c What period is it when the sodium ion channels are open, the membrane is totally insensitive to additional stimuli, regardless of the force of the stimulus?
- d one axon and multiple dendrites; efferent neurons and interneurons are multipolar
- e essentially rough endoplasmic reticulum, important metabolically
5 Multiple choice questions
- one single process leading away from the soma; afferent neurons are unipolar
- neuron serving as part of the conduction pathway between sensory and motor neurons; association neurons
- Another name for the action potential in neurons.
- Phagocytize and destroy microorganisms, foreign matter, and dead nervous tissue
- What toxin blocks synaptic transmission by preventing the flow of neural impulses from neuron to neuron?
5 True/False questions
deep pressure, cold temperature → The amt of stimulus needed to create an action potential. NA+ rushes into the cell increasing the number of positive ions inside the cell and changing the membrane polarity
Dendrite → receptive region of a neuron
PNS - Peripheral Nervous System → Ganglia and spinal and cranial nerves
Epineurium → binds all of the fascicles together
Conduction Velocity → What is the name of the velocity of the action potential along a neural membrane?
