What is the structure of the plasma membrane relevant to neurons?
How does the impulse start including the kind of gates that are involved and the kind of potential in the receptor (Meissner's corpuscle) itself?
What kind of potential needs to be generated for information to travel through the neuron toward the spinal cord?
How does the information travel through a Type A fiber?
What type of neuron (structural and functional) is involved in getting from the receptor to the spinal cord?
Where is the cell body for that neuron?
By what root does the neuron enter the spinal cord?
Is the neuron that brings the impulse to the spinal cord a first-, second or third- order neuron?
How is the information conveyed to the next neuron in the pathway?
What are the important structures at the synapse on the presynaptic and postsynaptic neurons?
How is the information sent from the presynaptic to the postsynaptic neuron?
What is the most common excitatory neurotransmitter in the spinal cord? Is it direct-acting or indirect-acting?
What is the most common inhibitory neurotransmitter in the spinal cord. Is it direct-acting or indirect-acting?
Which kind of neurotransmitter (see above) do you need to keep the information flowing?
What kind of potential is generated in the postsynaptic membrane by this type of neurotransmitter?
What structural type of neuron is involved in sending the information within the spinal cord and brain;
What tract will the impulses follow for specific recognition?
What type of circuit is involved if both the specific and nonspecific pathways are stimulated.
At what point does the neuron that goes up through the spinal cord synapse with the next neuron in line?
What regions (and subregions) of the brain does the neuron's axon pass through?
Where in the brain is the synapse between the second-order neuron and the third-order neuron?
Where in the brain is the sensation first recognized consciously? What functional area is involved?
Where in the brain can the sensation be compared to other sensations or associated with memories? What functional area is involved?
Where in the brain do voluntary motor impulses start? What functional area is involved?
What pathway is used for the voluntary motor output?
where can the flow of information be blocked between the sensory receptor
and the muscle.
