Problem Set 1 Cellular Neurobiology Fall 2010 1. Choose the best technique/molecule to use for the following purposes and describe their use (may be more than one correct answer): a. Identifying which cell types express the Hb9 gene within the spinal cord b. Identifying where the protein SOX2 is expressed within a cell c. Identifying the morphology of a cerebellar Purkinje cell d. Determining whether microglial motility depends on microtubule or microfilament activity e. Measuring the quantitative electrical activity of a neuron f. Determining the qualitative firing characteristics of a neural network 2. One of the rate-limiting steps in the propagation of action potentials is the opening of ion channels in response to voltage changes. Describe how myelination enhances the conduction of action potentials, with reference to the membrane properties we discussed in class (hint: saltatory conduction = jumping). 3.
