 5/17/11 Review from last class Anatomical :  Neuron physically changes (grows new  axons or dendrites or prunes);  Neurochemical :  Change in chemical concentration  released by terminal buttons;  Metabolic :  fluctuations in metabolic activity (e.g.  oxygen or glucose) in the brain in response to  experience.

 5/17/11 Review from last class analogical reasoning      think about the nerve cell as a human body with your  arm as the axon, your fingers as the dendrites and  finger tips as the terminal buttons.   If you think about an anatomical change in your  physical body, what would that mean?  It means your  body itself would have to change - ie you would lose  your arm, grow and extra thumb, etc. etc. The same  holds true for a neuron.  Something about the neuron

 5/17/11 if anatomical change is a change in the nerve cell  "body" itself, what would be chemical change?   Where/when are chemicals released (across the  synapse from one terminal node to another)?  So if  chemicals are released here, what might a chemical  change look like?   what you need for metabolism (glucose, oxygen,  etc.)?

 5/17/11 Another analogy: think this as a city  anatomical change is like changing the buildings or  roads. Metabolic change is changing the distribution of  power, water, and other resources. Neurochemical change is changing the distribution of  messages/info (like through moving telephone lines,  wireless internet, mail routes, etc).
