3-29-11 Afferent neurons carry information from brain to muscle for the control of movement. 1. true 2. false At rest, the potential in the inside of the membrane is ___ the outside. 1. more negative than 2. more positive than 3. about the same as At rest, the potential in the inside of the membrane is ___ the outside. 1. more negative than 2. more positive than 3. about the same as At equilibrium, when a neuron is at rest, 1. the concentrations of K ions in both sides of the membrane are the same. 2. there is no K ions moving in and out. 3. the concentration of K ions inside of the membrane is higher as compared to the outside. 4-5-11 There are more glia than neurons in the nervous system because glia perform multiple functions while neurons only conduct electrical impulses. 1. true 2. false Because there are ion channels that are open at rest, the plasma membrane is relatively leaky as compared to the insulated underwater cable. 3. true 4. false Why Na+ are not the major contributor to the Vrest at normal condition? 1. Because there is no chemical gradient for Na+. 2. Because the electrical gradient against Na+ influx. 3. Because there is no Na+ channel in the membrane. 4. Because the membrane permeability for Na+ is low. The plasma membrane acts as a ____, which means any change in the membrane potential would ___. 1. Capacitor, change the amount of charges inside and outside of the membrane. 2. Resister, slow down the charge movement across the membrane 3. Conductor, move ions across the membrane 4-7-11 What would take for an action potential to generate?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
