5 True/False questions
psychoactive drug → a stimulant drug that is the major active component found in tobacco
pure insertion (pure deletion) → a postsynaptic receptor that responds to both ACh and muscarine
Functional imaging → measures of temporary changes in brain physiology associated with cognitive processing; the most common methods of PET and fMRI are based on a hemodynamic measure
acetylchoilnesterase → a major small-molecule neurotransmitter used at the neuromusculus junction, in the autonomic nervous system, and in the CNS.
BOLD → Blood oxygen-level-dependent contrast; the signal measured in fMRI that relates to the concentration of deoxyhemoglobin in the blood
