Antibody staining can be used to see single neurons.
Practice makes perfect can be explained by plasticity.
Sodium potassium pump = bouncer
All myelinated neuronal processes are axons.
Once a neuron is killed, there will not be another one to replace it.
Blind spot: where the retinal ganglion cell axons leave the eye
Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) : Normally occurs after age 65. Progresses with age.
First complaints are that it is difficult to read. Visual field deficit is in the center
NPB lecture 6
There are two types of motor neurons; injury to each gives rise to very different symptoms:
Upper motor neuron: These are the neurons in the brain or spinal cord that are somehow involved in sending the
signal to the ventral horn
NPB 12 Notes
Embolism: Clot that travels from site where it was formed.
Thrombus: blood clot that forms in a vessel
The similarities between axon and dendrite: * Both carry electrochemical information.
* Both are the extensions from the so
Gray matter: Cell bodies
White matter: Axon tracks
The electrical force: opposites attract and similars repel
The chemical force: ions will go from high concentration to low
The equilibrium potential is the potential (voltage) across the membrane where th
