Sample text

This increases the likelihood that subsequent stimuli will continue depolarization to threshold and that an action potential will be generated by the postsynaptic neuron. At an inhibitory synapse, binding of the neurotransmitter to its receptor increases permeability of the membrane to K+ ions or to Cl– ions through chemical messenger-gated channels. fm Page 38 Thursday, February 26, 2004 10:36 AM 38 Essentials of Human Physiology for Pharmacy may enter the cell down their concentration gradient carrying (–) charges inward.

The loss of myelin disrupts the normal conduction of impulses along the axons of these neurons and results in weakness, numbness, loss of bladder control, and visual disturbances. Another advantage of the presence of myelin along an axon is that impulse conduction is energetically more efficient. Because action potentials occur only at the nodes of Ranvier, fewer Na+ and K+ ions move in and out of the cell. Therefore, less metabolic energy is required to return these ions to their original positions along the cell membrane and to maintain the proper concentration gradients.
