5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. structure of a synapse
  2. nissl body
  3. neuron
  4. hyperpolarization
  5. four types of neuroglia in CNS
  1. a cells that send and receive signals
  2. b -dense area of RER and ribosomes (produce neurotransmitters)
    -make neural tissue appear gray (gray matter)
  3. c ependymal cells
    astrocytes
    oligodendrocytes
    microglia
  4. d
  5. e -increasing the negativity of the resting potential
    -result of opening a potassium channel
    -opposite effect of opening a sodium channel
    -positive ions move out, not into the cell

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. -cells that provide brain power
    -most located in brain, spinal cord, autonomic ganglia
    -between sensory and motor neurons
  2. voltage regulated channels -
    -excitable membrane
  3. -carries sensory info
    -from PNS sensory receptors to CNS
    -somatic nervous system (SNS)
    -autonomic nervous system (ANS)
  4. three groups of axons:
    type A fibers -
    type B fibers -
    type C fibers -

    these groups are classified by:
    diameter of axon -
    myelination -
    speed of action potentials -
  5. functions are to process and coordinate:
    -sensory data: from inside and outside body
    -motor commands: control activities of peripheral organs (e.g. skeletal muscles)
    -higher functions of brain: intelligence, memory, learning, emotion

5 True/False questions

  1. somacell body

          

  2. postsynaptic potentialsgraded potentials developed in a postsynaptic cell
    -in response to neurotransmitters

          

  3. five main membrane processes in neural activitieswallerian degeneration - axon distal to injury degenerates
    schwann cells - form path for new growth; wrap new axon in myelin

          

  4. neural responses to injurieswallerian degeneration - axon distal to injury degenerates
    schwann cells - form path for new growth; wrap new axon in myelin

          

  5. efferent division-carries sensory info
    -from PNS sensory receptors to CNS
    -somatic nervous system (SNS)
    -autonomic nervous system (ANS)
