Anatomy Lecture 14 Schwann Cells 0 Each Schwann cell produces part of the myelin sheath surrounding an axon A cell myelinates 1 segment of an axon 0 Cells wrap around PNS axons lnner portion is myelin sheath Outer portion is the neurolemma produces myelin sheath 0 Pic in phone Oligodendrocytes 0 Each oligodendrocyte cell forms myelin sheath around as many as 40 axons in the CNS 0 Cell bodies are small Myelination in CNS axons 0 Cell bodies of oligodendrocytes do not surround the axons No neurolemma found 0 Tip of processes is involved in forming the myelin sheath Synthesis of large amount of plasma membrane Unmyelinated axons in PNS o Unmyelinated axons are a bundle of axons that are wrapped very thinly by Schwann cells 0 Thinly wrapped around each axon rather than a thick wrapping around a bundle like we are used to seeing 0 Node of Ranvier 0 Periodic gaps in the myelin sheath Facilitates the rapid conduction of nerve impulses Electrical impulses hop from 1 node to another 000 On a myelinated axon the impules hops between each node to quickly transport message 0 Unmyelinated axon makes impules go through the entire axon no skipping because no myelin to make nodes Neurotransmission 0 Pic in phone on neurotransmission o Nerve impulse Production of action potential 0 Change in membrane potential 0 Flow of ions 0 Synaptic transmission Release of neurotransmitters at the synapse Electrical signals in neurons 0 Like muscle bers neurons are electrically excitable 0 They communicate with 1 another using 2 types of electrical signals Graded potentials Shortdistance communication Action potentials Communication over long distances within the body 0 Production of electrical signals in neurons depend on A variety of ion channels that open or close in response to speci c stimuli Because the lipid bilayer of the plasma membrane is a good insulator ions must flow through these channels The existence of a resting membrane potential RMP Type of ion channels 0 0 They are present in the plasma membrane Leak or passive nongated channels They randomly open and close Gated channels They open and close in response to a stimulus Ligandgated Mechanically gated Voltagegated Selective permeability of membranes Speci c ions cross the membrane in direction of concentration gradient higher to lower Leak or Passive channels 0 Permeability to ion is high 0 They alternate between open and close position 0 0 Present in all cells In neurons they are in dendrites cell bodies and axons Ligandgated channel 0 Binding of a ligand stimulates the channel Ligand neurotransmitter hormones and ions 0 In dendrites of sensory neurons 0 In dendrites and cell bodies of interneurons and motor neurons mainly concentrated of the synapse Mechanically gated channels 0 Mechanical stimulus vibration touch pressure and tissue stretching o In auditory receptors receptors in internal organs and skin receptors Voltagegated channels 0 Open in respond to a change in membrane potential mainly located along the neuronal axon 0 Generation and conduction of action potential in axons Present on unmyelinated axons Node of Ranvier myelinated axons and axon hillock 0 Examples Na K and Ca2 channels 0 Model for voltagegated Na channels 0 Example Na channel 0 Both activation and inactivation gates need to be open for ion to pass through 0 At rest the activation gate is closed and the inactivation gate is open 0 Voltagegated K channels has only a single gate 0 Pic in phone
