Action Potential  How do you generate it  How do you get them to move faster  How do you get to threshold Absolute Refractory Period  What happens at threshold: v gated Na+ channels open, Na+ comes into the cell, positive charges come in and make cell more positive  From time when channel is inactivated to when it becomes de- inactivated and there is no way to have an A.P.  Period from when it is inactivated to when it is deactivated  When channels deactivate: Relative refractory period  Rate Code Opening Cl channels, Cl is high outside, Cl comes in and makes cell negative Anything that gets you farther from threshold makes it harder to have an action potential- inhibitory Excitatory Graded potentials  EPSP- change in receiving neurotransmitter  IPSP- change in potential is negative, inhibitory, hyperpolarizing, can from Cl channels coming in or K+ going out Summation keeps you at threshold or gets you there Takes less inhibitory inputs to stop excitatory inputs Parasympathetic NS  Heart Rate slows down  Exocytose  Phospholipid bilayer  Glutamate and Acetylcholine usually excitatory  Depends on receptor Functions/labeling of lobes Toxins Stepping on tack diagram Heart rate (Parasympathetic/sympathetic) diagram Ear diagram Four characteristics of the immune system Inflammatory Response (short answer) Compare/Contrast nervous and immune system – cytokines and neurotransmitters, difference is endocrine vs paracrine, both could be responses to outside stimuli Parts of ear, functions, hair cell, cochlear, basilar and tectoral membranes Ear- mechanical wave into mechano-electrical signal Small cells don’t need an action potential. Ear doesn’t have it because it’s like communicating across a room. With a neuron action potential, it’s like communicating over the phone from different states. ACH opens up sodium channels and excites the cell
