junction at which impulses travel from one neuron to another synapse
sodium potassium pump restores the resting potential
which statement about the chemical composition of axon is true? sodium is in greater concentration on outside
nodes gaps in the myelin sheath
neurotransmitters are released at synapses

hallucinogens distort sensory signals
transmission of pain signals all of the above
spinal cord all of the above

ascending pathways convey what sensory impulses
central nervous system consists of brain and spinal cord
electrical changes in axon create action potential
when impulse moves down axile small part of axon momentarily reverses polarity
peripheral nervous system provides pathways for central nervous system
