  1. a Difference in electrical charge across the plasma membrane. The membrane would be POLARIZED.
  2. b the PNS glial cell that forms myelin
  3. c one single process leading away from the soma; afferent neurons are unipolar
  4. d one axon and one dendrite
  5. e neuron serving as part of the conduction pathway between sensory and motor neurons; association neurons

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. a chemical released at the distal end of an axon that stimulates an adjacent cell; found in the synaptic vesicles of the axon terminal; initiates electrical current from one neuron to the next by diffusing across the synaptic cleft
  2. a bundle of nerve processes
  3. binds groups of fibers together to form bundles
  4. What is the name of the velocity of the action potential along a neural membrane?
  5. Form the myelin in the brain and spinal cord

5 True/False questions

  3. Relative Refractory periodWhat period is it during repolarization, the membrane may be stimulated if a very strong stimulus is used?


  4. CuraeWhat toxin blocks synaptic transmission by preventing the flow of neural impulses from neuron to neuron?


  5. Ependymal CellsPhagocytize and destroy microorganisms, foreign matter, and dead nervous tissue
