Unformatted text preview: Exercise 3: Neurophysiology of Nerve Impulses: Activity 7: The Action Potential: Conduction Velocity Lab Report Pre-lab Quiz Results You have not completed the Pre-lab Quiz. 12/07/11 page 1 12/07/11 page 2 Experiment Results Predict Question: Predict Question 1: How will the conduction velocity in the B fiber compare with that in the A Fiber? Your answer : c. The conduction velocity in the B fiber will be faster because the B fiber has less myelination. Predict Question 2: How will the conduction velocity in the C fiber compare with that in the B Fiber? Your answer : c. The conduction velocity in the C fiber will be faster because the C fiber has a smaller diameter. Stop & Think Questions: 3. Note the difference in time between the action potential recorded at R1 and the action potential recorded at R2. The distance between these sets of recording electrodes is 10 centimeters (0.1 m). Convert the time from milliseconds to seconds, enter the time (in seconds) in the field below, and then click...
