Motor Control Section 1: The Stretch Shortening Cycle (a.k.a. plyometric movements) Unit 1: Anatomy & Physiology Flow of information in a neuron is: 1) reception of information (usually on the dendrites) 2) summation of all the incoming signals (some excitatory (+) & some inhibitory (-) ) to see if a signal should be sent out the axon (summation occurs at the axon hillock) 3) output signal sent down axon to act The ALPHA ( α ) MOTOR NEURON has an axon which innervates skeletal muscle ventral root is all OUTGOING neural information = EFFERENT path dorsal root is all INCOMING neural information = AFFERENT path THE CELL BODY (SOMA) FOR A SENSORY NEURON IS IN THE DORSAL ROOT GANGLION (DRG) the dorsal & ventral roots join before they emerge from the bony vertebrae to form a MIXED nerve of afferent & efferent axons BRAIN & BRAIN STEM SPINAL CORD VENTRAL  ROOT DORSAL  ROOT Two ways for action potentials to get started

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
