Activity 1.4: NeuronsA.If you apply a sufficiently strong charge through an electrode touching the axon of aneuron, you will observe a sudden, sharp, but brief increase in electrical potential. Thisspike is called an action potential.B.If you apply an even stronger charge onto the neuron, will the spike described in a)become larger?
C.If your answer to b) was “YES”, briefly describe how different stimulus strengths arerepresented in neural spikes (no more than 2 sentences). If your answer to b) was “NO”,briefly describe how a neuron represents the strength of a stimulus (no more than 2sentences).
