The Nervous System:  The Nervous System Chapter 45 Neuron Organization:  Neuron Organization Sensory neurons carry impulses from sensory receptors to the central nervous system (CNS). Motor neurons carry impulses from the CNS to effectors. Interneurons help provide more complex reflexes and higher associative learning. Sensory and motor neurons constitute the peripheral nervous system (PNS). Neuron Organization:  Neuron Organization Somatic motor neurons stimulate skeletal muscles’ contraction. Autonomic motor neurons regulate activity of smooth muscles, cardiac muscles, and glands. sympathetic parasympathetic Neuron Organization:  Neuron Organization Cell surface integrates the information that arrives at its dendrites. triggers impulses that are conducted away from the cell body along an axon Neurons are supported structurally and functionally by supporting cells (neuroglia). Schwann cells oligodendrocytes produce myelin sheath interrupted by nodes of Ranvier Resting Membrane Potential:  Resting Membrane Potential Potential difference exists across every cell’s plasma membrane. cytoplasm side is negative pole, and extracellular fluid side is positive pole Inside of cell negatively charged because: large, negatively charged molecules are more abundant inside the cell sodium potassium pump voltage-gated ion channels Resting Membrane Potential:  Resting Membrane Potential When a neuron is not being stimulated, it maintains a resting membrane potential. cations outside the cell are attracted to anions inside the cell Resting plasma membrane is more permeable to K+ than other cations, so K+ enters the cell but the sodium-potassium pump is driving K+ out of the cell. equilibrium potential Sodium-Potassium Pump:  Sodium-Potassium Pump Resting Membrane Potential:  Resting Membrane Potential When a nerve or muscle cell is stimulated, sodium channels become more permeable, and Na+ rushes into the cell. sudden influx of positive charges causes the cell to depolarize K+ flows out of cell and the inside of the cell again hyperpolarizes Action Potentials:  Action Potentials Graded potentials are caused by the activation of gated ion channels. closed in normal resting cells chemical- or ligand-gated channels Summation is the ability of graded potentials to combine. Action Potentials:  Action Potentials Generation of action potentials Once a particular level of depolarization is reached, a nerve impulse (action potential) is produced. threshold A depolarization that reaches or exceeds the threshold opens both the Na+ and K+ voltage-gated ion channels. Slide11:  Voltage gated channels Action Potentials:  Action Potentials Propagation of action potentials events are reproduced at different points along the axon membrane positive charges can depolarize the next region of the membrane to threshold Action Potentials:  Action Potentials Saltatory conduction one node of Ranvier depolarizes the next, so that action potentials can skip between nodes saltatory conductions in myelinated axon more rapid than conduction in an unmyelinated axon Structure of Synapses:  Structure of Synapses Synapses are intercellular junctions. The neuron transmitting an action potential to the synapse is the presynaptic cell, while the receiving cell on the other side of the synapse is the postsynaptic cell. synaptic cleft - narrow space separating two cells Structure of Synapses:  Structure of Synapses End of presynaptic axon contains synaptic vesicles, each packed with neurotransmitters. diffuse rapidly to the other side of the cleft, and bind to receptor proteins in the membrane of postsynaptic cell Neurotransmitters and Their Functions:  Neurotransmitters and Their Functions Acetylcholine binds to its receptor proteins in the postsynaptic membrane and thereby causes ion channels within the proteins to open produces an excitatory postsynaptic potential (EPSP) acetycholine eliminated from the synaptic cleft by acetylcholinesterase Neurotransmitters and Their Functions:  Neurotransmitters and Their Functions Glutamate, glycine, and GABA Glutamate is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate CNS. Glycine and GABA are inhibitory neurotransmitters. produces inhibitory postsynaptic potential (IPSP) Fig. 45.18(TE Art):  Fig. 45.18(TE Art) Copyright © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.

Axon Neurotransmitters and Their Functions:  Neurotransmitters and Their Functions Biogenic amines dopamine norepinephrine serotonin Other neurotransmitters neuropeptides substance P - activated by painful stimuli intensity of pain perception depends on enkephalins and endorphins nitric oxide Neurotransmitters and Their Functions:  Neurotransmitters and Their Functions Synaptic integration Small EPSPs add together to bring the membrane potential closer to threshold, while IPSPs subtract from the depolarizing effect, keeping the membrane potential below the threshold. Neurotransmitters and Their Functions:  Neurotransmitters and Their Functions Neurotransmitters and drug addiction If receptor proteins within synapses are exposed to high levels of neurotransmitter molecules for prolonged periods, that nerve cell often responds by inserting fewer receptor proteins into the membrane. may lose ability to respond to stimulus - habituation cocaine nicotine Drug Addiction:  Drug Addiction Fig. 45.21(TE Art):  Fig. 45.21(TE Art) Copyright © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.

Motor axons leave from the ventral surface and form the ventral root of the spinal nerve. Cell bodies of sensory neurons are grouped together outside each level of the spinal cord in dorsal root ganglia.
