13 Neurons:

14 How neurons communicate: Resting potential: The resting membrane potential of a neuron is about -70 mv (mv=millivolt) - this means that the inside of the neuron is 70 mv less than the outside. At rest, there are relatively more sodium ions outside the neuron and more potassium ions inside that neuron. The resting potential arises from two activities. The Na-K ATPase pump Leaky K+ channels Leaky Na+ channels Na NaNaNa+ K+ K+ K+K+K+ K+

15 The potentials The resting potential The threshold potential The action potential The refractory (Undershoot)

16 The resting potential is the resting membrane potential of a neuron is about -70 mv, the imbalance of electrical charge that exists between the interior of electrically excitable nerve cells and their surroundings.

17 The threshold potential is the critical level to which a membrane potential must be depolarized to initiate an action potential. Threshold potentials are necessary to regulate and propagate signaling in both the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system.

18 Action potential Depolarization: Na channels open Repolarization: Na channels close and K channels open

19 The refractory (Undershoot): A refractory period occurs during the undershoot phase; during this period, the neuron is insensitive to depolarizing stimuli.

24 Schwann cells show remarkable versatility in undertaking a broad repertoire of functions. Ensheathment and myelination are specifically regulated by contact with axons, and the Schwann cell is centrally involved in extracellular matrix production in the peripheral nerve system (PNS) trunk. Additional Schwann cell functions include the promotion of both peripheral and central nervous system regeneration, provision of a versatile source of trophic factors, the capacity to remyelinate central nervous system axons, and the restoration of electrophysiological conduction. Since it is now possible to isolate Schwann cells both from neonatal and adult human peripheral nerve, their ability to promote regenerative efforts by many central neurons suggests a role for Schwann cell autografts in influencing central nervous system repair. Myelinating Schwann cells wrap around axons of motor and sensory neurons.

28 Neurotransmitter: When an impulse reach the end of axon releases a chemical called a Neurotransmitter into the space between the two neurons/between a neuron to a muscle. This space is called a synapse.

29 Neurotransmitter: Acetylcholine Acetylcholine is the neurotransmitter produced by neurons referred to as cholinergic neurons. In the peripheral nervous system acetylcholine plays a role in skeletal muscle movement, as well as in the regulation of smooth muscle and cardiac muscle. In the central nervous system acetylcholine is believed to be involved in learning, memory, and mood. Acetylcholine is synthesized from choline and acetyl coenzyme A through the action of the enzyme choline acetyltransferase and becomes packaged into membranebound vesicles. After the arrival of a nerve signal at the termination of an axon, the vesicles fuse with the cell membrane, causing the release of acetylcholine into the synaptic cleft. For the nerve signal to continue, acetylcholine must diffuse to another nearby neuron or muscle cell, where it will bind and activate a receptor protein.

30 Acetylcholine is synthesized from choline and acetyl coenzyme A through the action of the enzyme choline acetyltransferase Low synaptic concentrations of acetylcholine can be maintained via a hydrolysis reaction catalyzed by the enzyme acetylcholinesterase. This enzyme hydrolyzes acetylcholine into acetic acid and choline. If acetylcholinesterase activity is inhibited, the synaptic concentration of acetylcholine will remain higher than normal. If this inhibition is irreversible, as in the case of exposure to many nerve gases and some pesticides, sweating, bronchial constriction, convulsions, paralysis, and possibly death can occur

42 The circulatory system can either be open or closed, depending on whether the blood flows freely in a cavity or is contained in vessels. An open circulatory system, found in arthropods, pumps blood into a cavity called a hemocoel where it surrounds the organs and then returns to the heart(s) through ostia (openings). A closed circulatory system, found in all vertebrates and some invertebrates, circulates blood unidirectionally from the heart, around the body, and back to the heart.
