Unformatted text preview: given in class for this type of chemical communication between cells)? Why do these findings suggest that dendrites are more than just passive “antennae”? 6. What is the ratio of glia cells to neurons in the brain. Glia cells can influence the distribution of what important extracellular chemicals critical for neuronal signaling? What is the chemical messenger that glia use to communicate with each other? What are some of the outcomes of glia signaling upon brain function? 7. How do the brain waves of humans and other animals differ? What pattern of firing causes these differences in brain waves? What migith be contributing to the coordination (synchronous firing) in the human brain? What does this suggest about why the human brain can engage in much more complicated information processing than other animals....
