Unformatted text preview: ium channel. different parts of neuron have different properties.u dendrites pass graded potential. High [ NaV ] Weakest trigger zone
2 Strongest Efficacy: 1 > 2 > 3 > 4 synapse's behavoral depend on what
they have been doing recent history.
plasticity.i Dendrites may contain voltage-gated Na+, Ca2+, and K+ channels. how synapse used in activity recently. plasticity (behavioral depend on recent history of use.
brain response depend on experience).
-5 types of activity-dependent synaptic plasticity. 3 on left is short-term plasticity. right is
-the arrows show that when nerve is stimulated.
1. see small EPSP, then that EPSP get bigger at next stimulations. the post-synaptic response
get bigger in case of repetitive stimulus. the time constant of decay is in millisecond (the effect
is gone after a few mil...
