Things to think about for the midterm… Know some characteristics of a few phyla (can be found on back cover page) Be sure you understand the most fundamental definitions from chapter 1 (natural selection, adaptation, homeostasis, etc…) Why are enzymes important to living organisms? (ch 2) Ubiquitin and its role in protein degradation (ch 2) What are some powerful methods/tools of high-throughput genetic research? _______________________________________________________________________ Action potentials and resting membrane potential…underlying cause/mechanism of each Chemical and electrical ion gradients ion transporters (pumps) vs. ion channels Diffs b/w sympathetic and parasympathetic systems…norepinehprine vs. Ach, ganglia…

Unformatted text preview: Most nervous tissue develops from the ectoderm germ layer Advantages of using intracellular cascades (change gene expression, signal amplification, longer response) fast synapses vs. slow synapses (metabotropic receptors (G-protein functions) vs. ionotropic receptors) Excitatory vs. inhibitory neurotransmitters: only the postsynaptic receptor determines this! NERNST AND GOLDMAN! Other stuffs: slow vs. fast axonal transport, synaptic facilitation (heterosynaptic, homosynaptic) Some things that make good (or bad) essays: Conduction velocity in myelinated vs unmyelinated fibers How are proteins maintained in axons? Traditional and untraditional exp (journal article) Mechanisms of synaptic facilitation...
