After the generation and propagation of an action potential along a neuron, the cell becomes depolarized to the point where there is no potential for further signaling until the cell re-polarizes through the action of ion pumps. This very brief period is called the refractory state.
This is an extremely short time called the refractory period.
absolute refractory period
absolute refractory period.
This is the refractory period
Absolute refractory period.
is it repolarization
all or none fashion
the neuron is unable to respond to a stimulus of any intensity
the answer to this question would be sensory receptor
Arrival of stimulus, Activation of a sensory neuron, Information processing by an interneuron, Activation of a motor neuron, The response by an effector. Straight out of my anatomy text book.
the image passes from neuron to neuron through neurotransmitters until it reaches the brain, where the neurotransmitters are read
Neurons are responsible for transmitting a stimulus across a synapse. The electric potential of the neuron is sensitive to changes in the resting state and sets off electric transmissions.
A neuron conveys information about the strength of stimuli by varying the rate in which the stimulus is fired.
A sensory Neuron picks up the stimulus from the environment and changes it into a nerve impulse.
The stimulus is detected by the sensory receptor. The sensory receptor stimulates a sensory neuron. The sensory neuron transmits to the interneuron in the spinal cord. The interneuron stimulates a motor neuron. The motor neuron communicates to the muscle. The muscle(effector) then produces the response allowing the body to respond to the stimulus.
An interaction with the world.
the neuron pathway
Number of times the neuron fires
False( When a stimulus acts on a neuron, it increases the permeability of the stimulated point of its membrane to sodium ions. )
When a stimulus stimulates a neuron above the threshold, the action potential is generated.
