Name:_________________________ - 2 -Part 1: True/ False. If the statement is true, circle true; if the statement is false, circle false. 7 questions 14 points each. 1. (F) Conductance (g) is the reciprocal of voltage (V). 2. (F) Both glia and neurons send information via action potentials. 3. (F) The resting membrane potential is not exactly equal to the Nernst potential for potassium because the membrane has some permeability to species other than potassium. 4. (F) Nerve cells are exceptionally good conductors of electricity (much better, e.g., than copper wires). 5. (T) At electric synapses gap junctions allow current to flow between neurons in both direction. 6. (T) Exocytosis and endocytosis are important for synaptic communication. 7. (F) When current is injected into an axon, an action potential is always evoked before the current can spread any distance from the point of injection. Part 2: Multiple choice: circle the best answer. 21 questions 2 points each. 1. The scientist who shared the Nobel Prize with Camillo Golgi for his anatomical studies of the CNS was
