© 2011 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. Neural Impulse Axons ions/ion channel negatively/positively charged semipermeable membrane polarization Resting Potential stable charge of an inactive neuron
© 2011 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. Neural Impulse Action Potential depolarization (ion channel opens) repolarization ion exchange sweeps along length of axon all-or-none principle once initiated, cannot be stopped
© 2011 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. Synapses and Neurotransmitters Synapse/Synaptic Gap space between sending axon’s terminal buttons and the receiving dendrite or cell body Synaptic Transmission electrical impulse is converted into a chemical signal axon vesicle releases neurotransmitter into gap dendrite receptor site detects neurotransmitter

© 2011 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. Neurotransmitters Neurotransmitters carry information across the synaptic gap to next neuron. Acetylcholine muscle actions, learning, memory black widow venom ↑ Ach levels botox (botulin) ↓ Ach levels Alzheimer’s disease: ↓ Ach levels GABA anxiety: ↓ GABA levels
