Nervous System COLA

Wrong Answer
What is the integration stage of the nervous system communication? Interprets those changes in the brain drawing on our higher functions of intelligence, memory, learning, emotion.
What does motor output do? Responds by initiating action that might involve skeletal muscles or our internal physiological functions.
What is the function of the Dendrites? Receive (take in) signals from neurons, or other sensory cells (cells that give information about sight, smell, sound, touch and taste)
What is the function of the Axon? Transmit (send) signals to other neurons or cells in the body
Does the Myelin Sheath increase or decrease the speed of electrical conduction? Increase Decrease Neither, the conduction rate is equal along the axon
Hyperpolarization is referred to when the resting membrane potential is more.... Negative Positive sensitized desensitized
Cell types that are components of the nervous system are.. Glial cells and Neurons Neurons and Myoglia Myoglia and Glial cells Neurons and Neurite
Within a chemical synapse, the receptors.... bind to very specific ligands are only responsive to changes in voltage bind to a variety of different ligands are always degraded by enzymes in order disable them
The Axon hillock.... creates an action potential and transmits messages along axon
What is an Action Potential? when Neurones (nerve cells) communicate over long distances by generating and sending an electrical signal called a nerve impulse
There is more or less sodium outside a cell more less
There is more or less potassium outside a cell less more
What phase is a neuron at if it is inactive Resting Membrane Potential Threshold Refactory period Action potential
What does sensory output do? Senses changes within body and in the external environment.
