Flashcards in Chapter 8 Deck (13):
Name the two parts of a synapse
axon terminal of presynaptic cell
the membrane of the postsynaptic cell
what do electrical signals use to pass signals from one cell to another?
pores of gap junction proteins
What do chemical synapses use to pass signals?
What do nuerotransmitters and neuromodulators act as?
Which neurocrine molecules elicits a fast response?
What are the two categories of Neurocrine receptors?
Ligand gated ion channels, G Protein Coupled Receptors
which receptors are called ionotropic receptors?
Ligand Gated Ion Channels
GPCRs are also known as what?
Name the two type of cholinergic receptors
What ligand binds to cholinergic Receptors?
Where are nuerotransmitters released?
From seminal Vesicles in the presynaptic cell
Describe the steps of neurotransmitter release
caclium channels open in response to ap
calcium moves into the cell
calcium initiates exocytosis
neurotransmitters in seminal vesicles are released into the synaptic cleft
neurotransmitters bind to membrane receptors in postsynaptic cell
