Comparing Ionotropic and metabotropic receptors
Ionotropic: fast, brief, local
Metabotropic: slow, long lasting, propagated within neuron
A single EPSP is below threshold and does not generate an AP
Thermoregulation and how does it work?
Temperature sensors are neurons
A neuron has the same basic constituents as other cells
o Have a plasma cell membrane, nucleus, ribosomes,
endoplasmic reticulum, lysosomes
o The way that they are different is that

Hot and cold sensors
How does the nervous system control motor behavior?
If you know there is something wrong with your body temp how can
you do something about it?
