Science Flashcards

Neurons were considered quite simple and "dumb" units which performed rote calculations and spit out the only important product, the action potential. Perhaps most importantly, graded potentials are analog, meaning that they are infinitely variable, rather than digital, or all-or-none as is the action potential.

Graded potentials move relatively quickly, as they are driven by passive ion currents. Sometimes the magma cools inside the earth, and other times it erupts from volcanoes.

Likewise, very few neurotransmitters were recognized. I love the "peacock ore" at 5: This can result in some confusion for the cognitive science student unfamiliar with those subjects if the terms are not properly defined.

With this in mind, graded potentials will be the next topic under consideration. It is assumed that the distance between the charged regions is constant and the focus Study guide module 6 on the variable magnitudes of total charge in each region.

The cellular membrane is most permeable to potassium, but it is also slightly permeable to sodium. From ingeous rock, to sedimentary rock, to metamorphic rock. There are at least forty factors which affect integration, including strength of the signal, time course, type of transmission, spike frequency adaptation, accommodation, and threshold; the two main types are temporal and spatial integration.

This is because proteins embedded in the membrane, called passive ion channels, allow potassium ions, but not sodium ions, to cross the membrane. One basic assumption was that cells were essentially alike as far as electrophysiology goes. All neurons have resting potentials, as do many other types of cells in the body.

Nice guides for educators based on your area of the country. Myelin sheaths on axons improve their conductance by insulating the axon and improving action potential propagation.

Negative ions are attracted to more positively charged areas, and positive ions are attracted to more negatively charged areas; the force this tendency produces is called electrostatic force.

Graded Potentials When a presynaptic cell releases a neurotransmitter which binds to receptors on the postsynaptic cell, a graded potential results.

Excitatory post-synaptic potentials EPSPs cause a depolarization, making the membrane potential less negative.

Sometimes these two forces work against each other. Action and graded potentials have not escaped scrutiny, either. Sedimentary rock is formed from particles of shells, or sand and pebbles weathered from igneous rock.

The resting potential arises from two forces: Humus is the decayed remains of once-living creatures, and contains nutrients that plants use. The number of ion channels recognized was small, and they were assumed to be uniformly distributed along the membrane. Igneous rock is formed from magma molten rock deep in the earth.Study guide for module #6 of the "Apologia: Exploring Creation with Biology" textbook.
