The period during which it is possible for the neuron to fire again, but only by applying higher than normal levels of stimulation
Narrow spaces between adjacent neurons that are bridged by fine tubular channels
A brief period after the initiation of an action potential during which it is impossible to elicit a second one
A computer-assisted x-ray procedure that can be used to visualize the brain and other internal structures of the living body
Gaps between adjacent myelin segments that expose axon and allow ions to pass through
Uses infusion of a radio-opaque dye into a cerebral artery to visualize the cerebral circulatory system during x-day photography
Monoamine, catecholamine, associated with drugs
Receptors that are associated with ligand-activated ion channels
When postsynaptic potentials produced in rapid succession at the same synapse sum to form a greater EPSP
A gene inserted into cells to track which ones are active
Ion channels that open or close in response to the changes in the level of the membrane potential
A procedure in which high-resolution images are constructed from the measurement of waves that H2 atoms emit when they are activated by radio-frequency waves in a magnetic field

Small-molecule neurotransmitter, synthesized by adding an acetyl group to a choline molecule by ad
Monoamine, indolamine, associated with mood regulation
A method of neuronal integration of signals; local EPSPs that are produced simultaneously on different parts of the receptive membrane whose sum produces a greater EPSP
Receptors that are associated with signal proteins and G-proteins
Provides functional brain images rather than structural brain images using 2-DG
