HintAnswer
Action potential?
Small bubbles of membrane near the axon terminal
Rapid depolarization of the membrane
The relative ability of an electric charge to migrate from one point to another
Reading of DNA
Postsynaptic membrane is thicker than presynaptic
Synaptic vesicles fuse with presynaptic membrane and release neurotransmitters
Equation that allows us to calculate the equilibrium potential for an ion using the concentration difference
The force exerted on a charged particle
points along the axon without myelin through which ions move in and out
PSPs adding up via one or more neurons
Branches of the axon
Direct communication through gap junctions
Determines the shape of the neuron
Resting potential?
Rapid repolarization of the membrane
ions with a net negative charge (Ci and Ca)
The assembling of proteins from amino acids
Post and pre synaptic membrane are similar thickness
HintAnswer
Mimics the effects of neurotransmitter
Site of cellular respiration
The cite of protein synthesis
Equation that allows us to calculate the membrane potential at equilibrium using the relative permiabilities of the membranes
The final product of gene expression
Glia which fills space between neurons
When a neuron makes contact with another cell
membrane potential
Blocks the effects of a neurotransmitter
Current = conductance x potential difference
Responsible for sorting proteins
The process of assembling a piece of mRNA
Stacks of membranes near the nucleus
Forms the initial segment of the axon
Part of the action potential where the inside of the neuron is positively charged with respect to the outside
Ohm's law?
PSPs adding up via one neuron
ions with a net positive charge (Na and K)
