1a. Would a 2 point discrimination task be easier on your lips or on your back? 1b. Explain your answer to 1a. 2a. You record from a cell where repeated firing of a synapse causes an increase in the size of the excitatory post-synaptic potential. What is this process called? 2b. Describe in as much detail as you can the cellular mechanism underlying this process. 3a. How would you calculate the membrane potential of a cell? 3b. A cell’s membrane potential is –70 mV, and the concentration of chloride is equal inside and outside of the cell. If you apply neurotransmitter which opens a ligand-gated chloride channel, will the post-synaptic potential be hyperpolarizing or depolarizing? 3c. Explain your answer to 3b.

4a. What is the smallest number of cells that can produce a rhythmic firing pattern? 4b. Describe (in as much detail as you can) the cellular mechanisms which underlie this type of rhythmic firing. 5. 5a. What is this type of sensory neuron response called? 5b. Describe (in as much detail as you can) two different cellular mechanisms which could underlie this type of response. The adaptation seen in phasic responses could be due to: 6a. Define equilibrium potential. 6b. What is the difference between equilibrium potential and reversal potential?
