5 True/False questions
Microglial Cells → Line cavities of the brain and spinal cord; secrete and circulate cerebrospinal fluid
Sodium Potassium Pumps → 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
PNS - Peripheral Nervous System → the brain and spinal cord collectively
Ependymal Cells → Line cavities of the brain and spinal cord; secrete and circulate cerebrospinal fluid
Depolarization → The interior surface fo the membrane becomes less negative and the exterior surface becomes less positive
