Name 5 things that can be found in a synaps Ions channel, synaptic vesicles calcium ions, postsynaptic membrane, synaptic cleft
Neurotransmitters are released at the axon terminal
the rough ER of the cell nissl bodies
Conducts impulses toward the nerve cell body dendrites
conducts impulsed away from the nerve cell body Axon
Numerous nerve impulses arriving at a synapse at closely timed intervals exert a cumulative effect Temporal summation
an insufficient stimulus subthreshould stimulus
any stmulus below this intensity will result in no response in a neuron Theshold stimulus
Auditory area is in the Temporal lobe
primary sensory cortex is in the parietal lobe
Somatic motor cortex is in the Frontal lobe
Motor speech area is in the Frontal lobe
Premotor area is in the Frontal lobe
Visual area is in the Occipital lob
Language/speech comprehension area is in the Temporal lobe
Taste (gustatory) area is in the Parietal lobe
Seat of intelligence, abstract reasoning is in the Frontal lobe
Ciliated CNS neurologia that play an active role in moving the cerebrospinal fluid are called ependymal cells
The sheath of Schwann is also called the neurolemma
An excitatory neurotransmitter secredted by motor neurons innervating skeletal muscle is acetylcholine
The period after an initial stimulus when a neuron is not sensitive to another stimujlus is the refractory period
The part of a meuron that conducts impulses away from its cell body is called axon
the role of acetylcholinesterase is to destroy ACh a bried perion after its release by the axonal endings
collections of nerve cell bodies outside the central nervous sysytem are called ganglia
a neuron that has as its primary function the job of connecting other neurons is association neuron (inter neuron)
Which of these ions is actively transported through the cell membrane to establish a restion potential Na
an action potential is essential for impulse propagation
Meuroglia that control the chemical environment around neurons by buffering potassium and recapturing meurotransmitters are astrocytes
An inhibitory postsynaptic potential (IPSP) is associated with hyperpolarization
The brain stem consists of the midbrain medulla and pons
Spinocerebellar tracts carry proprioceptive inputs to the cerebellum
The subarachnoid space lies between what two layers of meninges arachnoid and pia
the cedrbrospinal fluid is pormed mostly by the choroid plexuses
the central sulcus separates which lobes frontal from parietal
the hypothalamus is the thermostat of the body since is regulates temperature
An individual accidentally transected the spinal cord between T1 and L1. Ths would result in paraplegia
Two terms for trhe massive mototr tracts serving voluntary movement are pyramidal and corticospinal
kAn individuyal who could trace a picture of a bicycle withe his or her finger byt coule not recognize it as a bicycle is most likelyt to have sustained damage to the visual association area
name three structures of the limbic system hippocampus, cigulate gyrus, and amygdaloid necleus
Normal cerebrospinal fluid contains flucose, potassium, protein
Huntingtons's disease has symptoms that are the opposite of parkinson's disease
Declarative memory is the ability to learn specific information
White matter (myelinated fibers) is found in what locations copus callosum, corticospinal tracts, outer surface of the spinal cord
Loss of ability to perform skilled motor activities such as piana playing with no paralysis or weakness is specific muscles might suggest damage to the premotor cortex
what is the cauda equina and why is it given this name nerves exiting the spinal cord, looks like a horses tail
