This question asks what the driving force for calcium entry is in the synaptic terminals of nerve cells. 1. Calculate the Nernst equilibrium potential for calcium in the synaptic terminal of a typical neuron. 4 points 2. Could calcium play a role in determining the voltage across the synaptic terminal normally at the level of the synaptic terminal? Why or why not? 4 points The following question asks if students know what kind of response a typical neuron will generate as the strength of a stimulus increases. 3. Draw the response of a touch-sensitive spinal neuron to changes in three stimuli (gentle, medium, and intense), all of which exceed enough of a stimuli to send the voltage of the cell beyond the threshold for the production of an action potential.

    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.
