    cells. Electrical conduction will also let AP to travel from one neuron to another. If the transition is chemical, the impulse that is received will spread to the presynaptic axon terminal. There will be a change in the voltage-gated channel of calcium; this will allow the movement of the calcium ions into the terminals of the axon. This will make the synaptic vesicles to bond with the presynaptic membrane, and release their molecules (transmitter) into the synaptic cleft. Some of these…

    activities for the library, we have six activities prepared for the event. For my activity, it is building a cell neuron out of candy. During the activity, I will teach the kids the basic parts of a neuron such as, dendrite, cell body, myelin, axon and axon terminal, and their functions. While the kids are building each part of the neuron, I will explain what part their building and explain what its function is. The kids will also have a handout to look at while building their neuron. The…

    When the electrical signal traveling down the axon of one nerve reaches the end of the axon, or the axon terminal, the signal must travel to the dendrites of the next neuron to continue on its path. To reach the dendrite, the signal must first cross a gap, called the synapse, between the axon terminal of the sending neuron and the dendrite of the receiving neuron. The neuron sending the message, called the presynaptic…

    Nematode C. Elegans

    • 4 Pages

    Neurotransmitters are released from synaptic vesicles after they move down the axon and fuse across the cleft. This vesicle transport depends on the protein kinesin which moves synaptic vesicles down the axon to the synapse for release. The inability to move a vesicle down the axon will be kinesin related since kinesin is linked principally with organelles that travel in the anterograde direction on the axon (Nobutaka). The nematode C. elegans is a model organism for studying these functional…

    potential at the dendrites will move to the cell body, and then from the cell body it will be propagated in one direction along the axon until it gets to the terminal. The axons of some neurons have an extra layer called a myelin sheath (myelinated). The myelin sheath is an insulator that helps increase the velocity at which an action potential is propagated along an axon. The myelin sheath is commonly made of a type of glial cell known as the Schwann cell. The Schwann cells have small gaps…

    not neurons and usually outnumber the neurons at a ratio of 10 to 1. The typical peripheral glial cells surrounding the axons are referred to as Schwann cells and are useful in myelination. The microglia, oligodendrocytes, and astrocytes form the central glia and are associated with the neuronal cell bodies. The gray matter of the central nervous system contains synapses, axons, dendrites, and neuronal cell…

    do their job, the axon is required. The axon is part of the neuron that carries electrical impulses away from the cell body. So when playing peek-a-boo that information is registered through a baby's brain where the axon then carries those electrical impulses all the way to the dendrites (which act as neurotransmitters received from other neurons. After the caregiver has been pulling away their hands away and to their face consistentely, that information is sent through the axon all the way…

    properly under command. Neurons used to complete a babies understanding of peek-a-boo is neuron, axon, axon terminal, synapse, and dendrites. A neuron is the main functional unit of the nerve tissue in the brain. When the game peek-a-boo first starts, the caregiver will cover their face to “hide” themselves while standing in front of the baby. The neuron and baby work together and the process begins, as the axon carries electrical pulses away from the…

    Favorite Childhood Memory

    • 1599 Words
    • 7 Pages

    Most people can recall a favorite childhood memory off the top of their head. Or how just one word can trigger a significant moment in the past. Or remembering your aunt’s homemade cookie recipe. We can all know that two plus two equals four because it has been drilled into our heads since we were children. The human memory is irreplaceable and something that we rely on everyday. But how does our brains remember directions to our favorite restaurant or what our dad’s favorite color is? Where are…

    unmyelinated axons, when they do have Myelination the process of propagation is different. When the axons have myelination they send the charge even faster than without because it is being conducted and given a boundary that the charge with not get last through and will go one way together. Not only through myelination but also the diameter of the axon, the bigger the axon the quicker the action potential will travel through. The action potential are transmitted while you go down the axons…
