Activity 5 1. Inactivation as it applies to a voltage-gated sodium channel means some voltage-gated sodium channels inactivate after the peak of the action potential. It is primarily the surfaces of the dendrites that receive chemical messages from other neurons.
Submit this completed document by the assignment due date found in the Syllabus. Neurons have a large number of extensions called dendrites. As the interval between the stimuli decreases, the threshold for the second action potential increased.
One extension is different from all the others, and is called Physioex 9. However, the various authors of this literature review disagree on whether or not this description generalizes different types of movements, such as active and passive gestures.
The dentist should inject the lidocaine in the nerve in the gums where the stimulus occurs to block pain perception. No there was no response, the line was flat 2. How does this tracing compare to the one that was generated at the threshold voltage?
Increasing the extracellular potassium reduces the concentration gradient, and less potassium diffuses out of the neuron and into the cell.
These nerves transmit information between the body and the brain via nerve impulses. Lidocaine is slow at reacting and eventually wears off.
