Question

Sequence the steps in how a nerve impulse moves from one neuron to another neuron, by writing the numbers 1 to 5 in the squares to the left of the steps. ___ The neurotransmitter moves across the synapse and binds to receptors on the dendrite of a neighboring neuron. ___ An electrical impulse is sent along an axon, jumping from node to node in axons covered with myelin. ___ The neuron is at rest, with more sodium ions outside the cell and more potassium ions inside the cell. ___ The impulse reaches the synapse, where channels again open. Vesicles fuse with the plasma membrane and release a neurotransmitter by exocytosis. ___ The threshold for an action potential is reached at a dendrite, opening channels in the plasma membrane and causing a reversal in electrical charge.

When a neuron is at rest, there are more sodium ions outside the cell and more potassium ions inside the cell. This creates a potential difference across the neuron's membrane.
