muscle naming criterion that includes such terms as extensor, flexor, and abductor
enlarged areas of the sarcoplasmic reticulum surrounding the transverse tubules that store calcium
ion that is found in the highest concentrations on the interior side of excitable membranes during periods of rest
the increasing of neuronal firing rate to optimize summated tension in muscle fibers
a major component of the central nervous system that contains long-range myelinated axon tracts

muscle naming criterion that includes such terms as pectoralis, femoris, and abdominis
muscle naming criterion that includes such terms as rectus, transversus, and oblique
ion that is taken in via voltage-gated channels during depolarization

muscle naming criterion that refers to its connections at the bone and the structure that it controls
deep invaginations of the sarcolemma in skeletal muscle cells that allow depolarization of the membrane to quickly penetrate to the interior
a type of glial cell that are the resident macrophages of the brain and spinal cord, and thus act as the first and main form of active immune defense in the central nervous system

the thin epithelium-like lining of the ventricular system of the brain and the central canal of the spinal cord that is involved in the production of cerebrospinal fluid
neuroglia that wrap around axons of motor and sensory neurons to form the myelin sheath in the peripheral nervous system
a major component of the central nervous system that contains cell bodies and unmyelinated axons
the border that separates and links sarcomeres within a skeletal muscle
