5 Multiple choice questions

  1. cylindrical structure that carries the neural impulse from soma to other neurons
  2. tree-like structures that branch out from the soma
  3. specialized cell activated by a stimulus
  4. gaps in the myelin that allow the neural impulse to jump down the axon
  5. carry incoming information from the sense receptors to the brain and spinal cord

5 True/False questions

  1. Thresholdindividual nerve cells that communicate directly or indirectly with other neurons

          

  2. Neuronindividual nerve cells that communicate directly or indirectly with other neurons

          

  3. The Neural Impulse1. 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

          

  4. Neural ChainChain of events that take place in neural communication

          

  5. Motor neuronscarry outgoing information from brain and spinal cord to the muscles and the glands
