2 6. Which of the following might result in the opening of potassium ion channels in a target cell membrane following signaling from the autonomic nervous system? a.) Acetylcholine. b.) Norepinephrine. c.) Nicotine. d.) Diacylglycerol. e.) a.) and b.) f.) a.) and c.) 7. If an inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase is added to a neuromuscular junction, then the postsynaptic membrane will: a.) Be depolarized by action potentials more frequently. b.) Be depolarized longer with each action potential. c.) Be resistant to depolarization. d.) Spontaneously depolarize. 8. Signals can be sent in only one direction through synapses such as the neuromuscular junction. Which of the following best explains unidirectional signaling at synapses between a neuron and a skeletal muscle cell? a.) Neurotransmitter is always degraded by the postsynaptic cell. b.) Only the postsynaptic cell has neurotransmitter receptors. c.) Axons can propagate action potentials in only one direction. d.) Only the postsynaptic cell has a resting membrane potential. 9. Somatic motor pathways are: a.) Always excitatory. b.) Composed of a single neuron. c.) Synapse with skeletal muscle cells. d.) All of the above. 10. Calcium ions in skeletal muscle: a.) Are necessary for myosin-actin crossbinding. b.) Bind to tropomyosin, which exposes active binding sites on actin. c.) Bind to troponin, exposing active binding sites on myosin. d.)
