Flashcards in Q5 (Go over again) Deck (10):
What is the term for the interaction of EPSPs and IPSPs in time?
T/F: Synaptic interactions can be complicated by time-dependent conductance changes.
Can an EPSP be inhibitory?
When two just-subthreshold EPSPs occur synchronously, what is the result?
The two are summed together to create a larger potential.
Name one example of a neuron in the human body in which voltages spread only passively without action potentials.
Rod and cone cells
The "length constant" depends on the ratio of the membrane resistance to what other type of resistance?
Name one example of a cell type in which the capacitance changes due to cell structure.
Myelinated axon or muscle fiber.
Give one example of when a region of a neuron has an abrupt change in diameter.
When one potential invades that of another cell body.
The ratio of what axon parameter affects propagation from a smaller into a larger axon?
