24 -- All of these represent the same speed (m/s) -- bigger distance -- faster time! compression of space = compression of time!

29 Johannes Műller 1826 DOCTRINE OF SPECIFIC NERVE ENERGIES “regardless of how a receptor is stimulated it produces only one kind of sensory experience”

30 Figure 2.4 The neuron on the right consists of a cell body, dendrites, and an axon, or nerve fiber. The neuron on the left that receives stimuli from the environment has a receptor in place of the cell body.

32 1 -- electrical stimulation (artificial depolarization) 2 -- spatial and temporal integration of EPSPs and IPSPs across the neurone’s membrane resulting in the neuronal threshold being reached. Generator potential 3 -- sensory stimulation (transduction) mechanical (cytoskeleton) chemical (receptors, second messengers) light (hyperpolarization) WHEN DO CELLS PRODUCE ACTION POTENTIALS?
