12/07/11 page 2 Experiment Results Predict Question: Predict Question 1: You have just observed that each action potential in a burst can trigger additional neurotransmitter release. If calcium ions are removed from the extracellular solution, what will happen to neurotransmitter release at the axon terminal? Your answer : c. There will be less neurotransmitter release. Predict Question 2: What will happen to neurotransmitter release when low amounts of calcium are added back to the extracellular solution? Your answer : c. Neurotransmitter release will increase to control levels. Predict Question 3: What will happen to neurotransmitter release when magnesium is added to the extracellular solution? Your answer : c. Neurotransmitter release will the same as that in the control solution.
