Electrical Signals in Nerve Cells Information transmitted by __________ within neurons Signaling involves _________: movement of ____ across cell membrane signaling is ____ but much _____ compared to electric current in wires
Background image of page 4
Ionic concentration of biological fluids Ion = atom or molecule with an ___________________ Neurons are bathed in ________________containing Na+, Cl-, K+ and Ca2+ (among others) Intracellular fluid also contains these ions but in different _____________ plus a relatively high concentration of charged organic substances (amino acids, sugars, proteins nucleic acids etc.) * Note that organic substances account for electroneutrality and osmotic balance

Ions cannot freely cross plasma membrane Cells encased by ________________: ‘plasma membrane’ ________________isolates inside of cells from extracellular fluid
Background image of page 6
Ions diffuse across membrane via ion channels Ion channels are ______ that ____ the membrane: 4-6 subunits forming a central _____ ___________: type of subunits determines which ion(s) can pass e.g. K+ selective channels Ion channels increase membrane permeability

Ionic current depends on membrane 1. Electrons: ____________ i = V/R (i: current; V: voltage; R: resistance) or restated i = V x g (g: conductance = 1/R) 2. _____: flux = [force on ion] x Permeabilit y note: ‘P’ is membrane permeability; analogous to conductance) Two ______ regulate ion movement across cell membrane: 1. Electrical (voltage) 2. Chemical (concentration difference)
Background image of page 8
Chemical ‘force’ _______ acts to distribute ions evenly in a solution _____________-dependent _______ movement of ions in solution in water: ______ (NOT bulk flow) Net movement of solute from regions of high concentration to regions of low concentration
