Why do we need synapses?
Why don't we simply have axons that
extend all the way to the effector?
Synapses enable neural integration
The ability to process information increases
with greater numbers of synapses
A neuron of the cerebral cortex has ~40,000
s
The unstimulated neuron has a resting
membrane potential (RMP) of about -70 mV
Neurons can respond to a variety of stimuli.
Stimulation of a neuron results in a local potential.
Local potentials differ from action potentials
The influx of Na+ depolarizati

Determining an Equilibrium Constant
Introduction
It is frequently assumed that reactions go to completion, that all of the reactants are converted into products.
Most chemical reactions do not go to completion because they are equilibrium systems where th
