Module 3: The Neuroscience of behavior 1. Dominoes are some small often rectangular objects which fall automatically when the first domino is pushed to trigger movement. Action potential portrays this kind of movement. When a signal is strong enough to be transmitted through the axon of the movement, the neuron fires, a condition known as the action potential ( Cacioppo & Freberg, 2018). For instance, we might not feel warm until our neurons gather enough sensible heat from the atmosphere during the day via the dendrites. When the sensory nerve dendrites detect enough stimulus concerning heat, the information is therefore transmitted through the axon (a condition called action potential) to the axon terminals which might further relay the signal information to the respective parts of the body. Just like in dominoes, when the initial stimulus is enough the transfer of electrochemical information, action potential does not need any more stimulation. When this happens, we find ourselves removing our jackets and sweaters in response to the stimulus.

    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.
