5 True/False questions
Neurotransmitter (NT) → A phenomenon of neural integration in which the membrane potential of the post-synaptic cell in a chemical synapse is determined by the combined effect of EPSPs or IPSPs produced in rapid succesion
Myelinated Sheath → The total amount of energy an animal uses in a unit of time.
Synapse → The junction where a neuron communicates with another neuron or other cell across a narrow gap via a neurotransmitter(chemical) or an electrical coupling.
Myofibrils → A type of motor protein that associates into filaments that interact with actin filaments to cause cell contraction
Striated → A specialized center of body function composed of several different types of tissues
