a.ii.7.cells part of this nervous system which respond to stretching which cause the stomach to contract, release acid, release enzymes and release hormones mechanoreceptors – sense stretch chemoreceptors – sense glucose (food)b.Somatic Nervous System b.i.All spinal nerves are mixed nerves b.ii.Alpha motor neurons control the muscle cells2.Neurons a.Properties of neurons a.i.Excitability

a.i.1.-70 mV resting membrane potential a.i.2.can be depolarize (excite – more positive) or hyperpolarize(inhibit - more negative)) most abundant excitatory neurotransmitter – glutamate most abundant inhibitory neurotransmitter – gabba  gabba receptors are permissive to chloride ions a.ii.Conductivity a.ii.1.Action potentials a.iii.Secretion a.iii.1.Unique to nerve cells b.Structure of neurons b.i.Cell body is where we find cell organelles b.ii.Dendrites is cytoplasmic projections b.iii.Cell body and dendrites have ligand-gated channel, Na/K pumps and K leak channelsb.iv.Axon have synaptic terminals b.iv.1.Find mitochondria in terminal knobs b.v.Receptors are ligand gated b.v.1.Neurotransmitters are the ligands b.vi.When an action potential hits a terminal knob opens up the volgate gated calcium channels, allowing the calcium to come in b.vii.Volgate gated channels open at -60b.viii.Spike initiation zone – axon hillock + initial segment of axonc.Axonal transport c.i.Anterograde movement (cell body to terminal knob) c.i.1.Use kinesin (moves cargo to positive end of microtubule - MAPS)c.ii.Retrograde movement (terminal knob to cell body)
