BIO416L Week1 Take Home Questions Review Physiology I materials (4 pts total) 1. What is membrane conductance? What is high Na+ conductance mean? (1 point) 2. What is a living cell resting membrane potential (Vm) and ion equilibrium potential (E ion )? If a living neuron membrane potential is -70 mV, and we calculated the equilibrium potential for the following ions are: Cl- (-70 mV), K+ (-90 mV), Na+ (+60 mV). How much net force to direct those ions flow through the membrane of this neuron

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
