5 Multiple choice questions
- cylindrical structure that carries the neural impulse from soma to other neurons
- carry incoming information from the sense receptors to the brain and spinal cord
- gaps in the myelin that allow the neural impulse to jump down the axon
- Knobs at the end of the axon
- specialized cell activated by a stimulus
5 True/False questions
Myelin Sheath → Chain of events that take place in neural communication
The Neural Impulse → 1. Threshold: the level of stimulation required to trigger a neural impulse in the receiving neuron.
2. Impulse travels from the soma down the axon to terminal button
3. At the terminal, vesicles move to the membrane, attach and release chemicals into the synapse
Interneurons: → Neurons that convey information between neurons in the brain and spinal cord.
Motor neurons → carry outgoing information from brain and spinal cord to the muscles and the glands
Dendrites → tree-like structures that branch out from the soma
