Unformatted text preview: negative than resting potential
Threshold – requisite potential for an AP to occur (all-or-none) hyperpol-- membrane becomes more negative that resting
threshhold-- when it hits a certain point it ﬁres the AP !!!!!!! incredibly important!!!!!!!!!! Principle of Connectional Specificity
this is the axon hitting a dentrite--there is synaptic gap!!!!!
thisis how the info in transmitted from axon to dendrite by chemicals!!
they are called neurotransmitters-- EX-dopamine(parkinsons). seratonin, Chemical Synapses (shown above)
! N o between synapses via the release of neurotransmitters cytoplasmic connections between neurons Electrical Synapses
! Direct the AP hits the end o the axon and releases the neurotransmitters--this slows do
neurve impulses. connections between neurons (gap junctions) dont konw eleictricl synapse not important for this course 6 7/4/12 just know myalin and neruto transmitter and exmaples of nuerotransmitters!!! Chemical Synapses !!!!!!...
