A snapshot of the summary - The Adaptive Brain

  • LC 3 Synaptic transmission

  • Name 3 characteristics of electrical synapses
    • Fast
    • bi-directional
    • tight binding dues to connexons
  • Synaptic vesicle release needs or doesn't need app form the mitochondria
  • Where are the synaptic vesicles located
    At the active zone or the ready release pool
  • What is the cycle for synaptic vesicles recyclin
    1. Docking
    2. priming
    3. exocytosis
    4. endocytosis
  • What is the function of synaptotagmin
    Senses Ca+ and triggers fusion
  • LC 1 Purves Chapter 2

  • Why are neurons poor generators and conductors
    They are made out of lipids
  • The Na+/K+ pumps uses ... Atp to get Na out and ... Atp to get K+ in
    2 and 3
  • LC 2 Action potentials are generated by ion currents

  • Name the phase of an action potential
    1. Resting membrane potential
    2. rising until threshold
    3. depolarization: Na+ and K+ channels open
    4. repolarization: N+ channels begin to close
    5. hyperpolarization: Na+ channels close, K+ still open
    6. back to resting membrane potential: K+ channels are also closed
  • What does the patch clamp method do
    Micropippet sucks a part of the membrane containing ion channels that allows current
  • LC 4 Molecular signaling within neurons

  • What are the amplification steps
    Receptor, adenylyl cyclase, protein kinases
