Flashcards in Q7 Deck (10):
T/F: The neuron in the Site of Impulse Initiation Tutorial is the simplest computational type of computational representation of a neuron.
In the Site of Impulse Initiation Tutorial, is the dentrite isopotential?
The neuron's morphology per se causes the spike to initiate in the axon in a region close to what part of the axon?
Evidence suggest that there may be a greater density of what in the region close to the soma?
In the Synaptic Integration tutorial, the channel densities are matched to experimental observations in the spinal motoneuron of what animal?
T/F: The amount of current is the important factor in whether a neuron will depolarize enough to initiate an action potential.
What lizard preparation was used in the Impulse Invasion of the Presynaptic Terminal tutorial?
Bouton-type neuromuscular junction
What technique did Lindgren and Moore (1989) use to record currents from lizard presynaptic terminals?
How has nature ensured that an action potential can invade a myelin-free presynaptic arbor despite increased capacitive load?
Short arbor branches
