Behavioral Neuro

Postsynaptic Potentials:Neural integration/Autoreceptors/other synapses

neural integration the interaction of the effects of excitatory and inhibitory synapses on a particular neuron.
axon hillock located at the base of the axon. If the EPSP's reach it the axon will fire
neural inhibition an inhibitory postsynaptic potential
behavioral inhibition inhibition of inhibitory neurons will make the behavior more likely to happen. Excitation of neurons that inhibit a behavior suppresses that behavior
autoreceptors located on the terminal button, regulate amount of neurotransmitter produced and released.
axoaxonic are synapses that occur on axons (do not contribute directly to neural integration)
presynaptic inhibition when the activity of the axoaxonic synapse "decreases" the release of the neurotransmitter
presynaptic facilitation when the activity of the axoaxonic synapse "increases" the release of the neurotransmitter
dendrodendritic synapses synapses between dendrites. M any very small neurons have extremely short processes and lack axons
gap junction for electrical synapses, where the membranes meet and almost touch
reuptake reentry of a released neurotransmitter back into the presynaptic cell
Enzymatic deactivation destruction of a neurotransmitter by an enzymeafter its release
hormones 1.secreted by glands and organs into extracellular fluid 2. distributed widely via bloodstream 3. can affect neurons as well as other target cells throughout the body
steroid hormones can travel into nucleus of cells

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
