1: How is the nervous system organized? How do neurons work? A) Explain how the anatomy and subdivisions of the nervous system are associated with specific functions. B) Analyze how properties and structures common to cells are used for specialized functions in nerve cells. Describe how the structure of nerve cells and ion channels generate and modulate action potentials. Describe how the shape and timing of action potentials can carry information. Predict how a mutation that affects ion channels could have pathological consequences. C) Justify the importance of “model organisms” in the study of the
