Unformatted text preview: Study Questions for Dr. Leonard's lectures: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Describe different types of movement that are generated by the our central motor system. Discuss the major components of the central motor system and their organization. What is the organization of descending control of segmental reflexes and how do these descending systems control them? What are the consequences of supraspinal damage? Discuss the organization of motor cortical areas How do neurons in primary cortex encode movement? Discuss how the cerebellar cortex influences the vestibulospinal system What are the inputs to the cerebellar cortex? Discuss the direct and indirect pathways through the basal ganglia. What effect would lesions of each stage have on movements? 10. Describe the modes of neural communication 11. Enumerate the similarities and differences between ionotropic and metabotropic receptors 12. Make a list of putative neurotransmitters and their receptors 13. Discuss the mechanisms used to terminate the action of neurotransmitters 14. Explain the distinction between declarative and procedural memories as revealed by brain lesions 15. Discuss the cellular and molecular mechanisms leading to sensitization of the gill withdrawal reflex 16. Explain the proposed mechanisms for induction of LTP in the Schaeffer collaterals synapses onto CA1 Pyramidal cells in the hippocampus. 17. What mechanisms contribute to maintenance of LTP ? 18. What are the steps regulating the concentration of transmitter in the synaptic terminal? 19. What are the criteria to be met for a substance to be considered a neurotransmitter? 20. Compare and contrast how AMPA and NMDA receptors work in synaptic transmission. ...
