Rationalize the necessity for adaptation and sensitivity control in terms of cellular processes and stimulus dynamic range. III. Sample Problems: 1. How is intensity encoded as a graded potential? 2. How is intensity encoded as action potentials? 3. What two ways control sensitivity in the Pacinian corpuscle? file:///C|/WINWORD/COURSES/31107/Lec12-07.htm8/15/2007 10:16:57 AM...
