Acetylcholine- slows heart rate; PNS Glutamate- most prevalent neurotransmitter in the brain Aspartate- in CNS GABA- inhibitory neurotransmitter Glycine- inhibitory neurotransmitter Norepinephrine- awakening from deep sleep Epinephrine- increase heart rate Dopamine- movement of skeletal muscles Seratonin- sensory perception, temp regulation, mood, sleep Nitric oxide- may play a role in memory and learning Enkephalin- inhibit pain impulses by suppressing release of substance P Substance P- enhances perception of pain tyrosine
Converging circuit same source Pacinian corpuscles -- pressure different sources control of respiration Diverging Circuit permits broad distribution of a specific input types A. amplification B. divergence into multiple tracts
Parallel after-charge circuit several neurons process same information at one time each chain has a different number of synapses, but eventually they all reconverge on a single output output neuron may go on firing for some time after input has ceased important in withdrawal reflexes longer-lasting output from small period of pain
Reverberating Circuit axons extend back toward the sources of an impulse and further stimulate the presynaptic neuron helps maintain consciousness, muscular coordination, normal breathing, short term memory...

Multiple Sclerosis Autoimmune disease Destruction of myelin sheath Scar tissue may form
Epilepsy Rapid synchronous firing of neurons Seizure Treatments: Drugs Implants Brain surgery
INQUIRY 1.What voltage is the threshold potential? 2.Describe depolarization, repolarization and hyperpolarization. 3.Which ion causes the neurotransmitters to be released across the synapse? 4.Name 2 instances that you can stimulate a neuron to depolarize. 5.What disease is characterized by myelin sheath degeneration? 6.Can all parts of the CNS regenerate if damaged?
