Name: Terri Exercise 3: Neurophysiology of Nerve Impulses: Activity 9: The Action Potential: Putting It All Together Lab Report Pre-lab Quiz Results You scored 100% by answering 4 out of 4 questions correctly. 1. Sensory neurons respond to an appropriate sensory stimulus with a change in membrane potential that is You correctly answered: b. graded with the stimulus intensity. 2. If the depolarization that reaches the axon is large and suprathreshold, the result in the axon is You correctly answered: c. action potentials at higher frequency. 3. At the axon terminal, each action potential causes the release of neurotransmitter. This neurotransmitter diffuses to the receiving end of an interneuron, where it binds to receptors and causes You correctly answered: a. ion channels to open, so that the receiving end of the interneuron depolarizes. 4. Interneurons respond to chemical (neurotransmitter) stimulation with a change in membrane potential that is You correctly answered: b. graded with the stimulus intensity. 03/03/19 page 1

    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.
