Crash Course Nervous System 2: How Action Potentials Work

Neurons are extraordinary cells. Beyond being intricately branched and gigantic relative to most cells, every second hundreds of billions of electrical impulses called action potentials are transmitted in your body. Before we check out how that works, it’s useful to refresh a few electricity terms. Voltage is a difference in electrical charge. In neurons, voltage is measured in milivolts (1/1000th of a volt) and is called membrane potential. When neurons are at rest and not receiving electrical signal. their internal charge is negative thanks to the activity of a remarkable macromolecular machine: the sodium-potassium pump. In addition to sodium potassium pumps, neurons have many types of ion channels. Ion channels allow many charged ions to pass across a cell membrane. 169 Ch 21_lecture_presentation. ⚡Presentation "26-1 Chapter 26 Lecture Outline See PowerPoint Image Slides for all figures and tables pre-inserted into PowerPoint without notes.

The Mind's Machine - Chapter 3 Visual Summary. CH 11 Neuron-to-Neuron Transmission. Exam 3 Review: Chapter 11: Neuron-to-Neuron Transmission axodendritic - A term pertaining to an excitatory or inhibitory synaptic connection between the presynaptic axon of a transmitting neuron and the postsynaptic dendrite(s) of a receiving neuron in a nerve impulse pathway; such connections can influence whether or not a graded potential will be generated on a postsynaptic dendrite. axosomatic - A term pertaining to an excitatory or inhibitory synaptic connection between the presynaptic axon of a transmitting neuron and the postsynaptic cell body/soma of a receiving neuron in a nerve impulse pathway; such connections can influence whether or not an action potential will be generated in the postsynaptic axon trigger zone at the axon hillock. diffusion - The spontaneous movement of molecules or other particles in solution, owing to their random thermal motion, to reach a uniform concentration throughout the solvent, a process requiring no addition of energy to the system.

Division B and Division C will both typically concentrate on three systems. Topics may include diseases in those systems as well as the general anatomy and function of each system from the cellular to the holistic scale. Check the General Anatomy page for information concerning basic topics of anatomy. The event can be run in stations or be administered as one test packet.

The histology of the wall of the small intestine differs somewhat in the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum, but the changes occur gradually from one end of the intestine to the other. 1.

It starts at the pylorus of the stomach, ends at the duodenojejunal junction and measures about 25 cm long. It receives partly digested food (chyme) from the stomach and bile and pancreatic fluids from the pancreaticobiliary duct. After entering the duodenum the acidic contents from the stomach is neutralized by secretion from the intestine and pancreas. Histology Digestive page 1 Frame. Histology-World! Table of Contents.
