    The axon at all
  15. There are many microtubules in the
    Axon and the dendrites
  16. The axon has no machinery to make

    Anterograde, retrograde is the opposite
  19. Proteins cannot be produced in the
    Axon terminals
  20. A cell body (soma) contains
    Nissl bodies, Axon hillock, Golgi complex, Mitochondria, Inclusions, neurofilaments, microtubules
  21. Dendrites are
    Receptor processes that receive stimuli from other neurons or from the external environment
  22. Axon
    Effector process that transmit stimuli to other neurons or effector cells.
  23. Each neuron only has one
    Axon even though it may have different numbers of dendrites.
  24. Axon begins at an elevation called the
    Axon hillock, where the action potential generated. Can extend for long distance (1m).
  25. Anterograde
    From soma to the axon terminals: slow, intermediate and fast speeds
  26. Retrograde
    From axon terminals to soma
  27. Microtubule associated proteins (MAPs) are used for what specific movements
    Kinesin (for anterograde) Dynein (for retrograde)
  28. Nissl bodies contain
    Ribosomes and rough ER, and they also produce proteins
  29. A branch from the axon is called a
    Collateral branch
  30. The initial segment is where
    The action potentials are produced
  31. What organelles are found in the interior of an Axon
    Smooth ER, mitochondria, microtubules, neurofilaments
  32. What lies between the presymnaptic and post symnaptic membranes,
    A synaptic cleft
  33. Synapses
    is a special cell junction that allows direct communication between cells
  34. The structure labeled C is
    Presynaptic membrane/density
  35. The four different types of neurons are
    • Bipolar
    • Pseudounipolar
    • Unipolar
    • Multipolar
  36. Motor neurons are found mostly in what portion of the nervous system
    The central nervous system, they are sometimes in autonomic ganglia of the PNS
  37. The dorsal root ganglia contain what type of neurons
    Bipolar and Pseudounipolar because they are sensory neurons
  38. What are Glial (Neuroglial) cells
    They are supporting cells for the neurons
  39. What are the five different glial cell types
    • Oligodendrocytes
    • Astrocytes
    • Microglial
    • Ependymal Cells
    • Schwann cells
  40. Oligodendrocytes are found where and perform what function
    Only in the CNS, they form myelin sheaths (one can wrap many neurons)
  41. Astrocytes are found where and perform what function
    They are the largest Glial cell found in the CNS, and they scavage ions.

    Glial fibrillar acidic protein (GFAP) is unique to astrocytes
  42. Microglial cells are found where and perform what function
    • Scattered throughout the CNS but originate from the bone marrow
    • Function: as phagocytes
  43. Ependymal cells have what characteristic shape and are found where
    Low columnar or cuboidal cells, Line the ventricles of the brain and the central canal of the spinal cord.
  44. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is
    A disease affecting myelin; F>M; Believed to be a autoimmune disease; distinguished by episodes of random, multifocal inflammation. Each episode of demyelination may become malignant, and lead to death in a matter of months.
  45. Schwann cells are a unique glial cell because they are
    The only neuroglia that reside in PNS

    • They produce myelin
    • In PNS, all elements (axons and cell bodies) are ensheathed by Schwann cells.
  46. Nodes of Ranvier are
    Gaps between the myelin sheath along the axon
  47. Each Schwann cell can only myelinate
    One internode of a single axon in PNS
  48. Schwann cells and nodes of Ranvier are covered by
    Basal lamina
  49. An axon potential jumping from node to node is called
    Saltatory conduction
  50. Unmyelinated axons are surrounded by
    A single layer of Schwann cell plasma membrane and cytoplasm of the Schwann cell
  51. One Schwann cell can envelop
    Several Unmyelinated axons
  52. When voltage-gated Na+ channels are along the entire length of the axon due to unmyelination what happens during a conduction
    Impulse propagation occurs by continuous conduction
  53. Epineurium
    An external fibrous coat of dense connective tissue, which also fills the space between the bundles of nerve fibers.
  54. Endoneurium
    Perineurium
    Endoneurium
  55. The structure labeled C is
    Perineurium
  56. Sensory ganglia of the spinal nerves are called
    Dorsal root ganglia
  57. Sensory ganglia
    House cell bodies of sensory neurons (Pseudounipolar neurons)
  58. Autonomic ganglia
    House cell bodies of postganglionic autonomic nerves; motor in function (Multipolar neurons)
  59. Mesaxon:
    Innermost and outermost lips schwann cells wrapped around a neuron
  60. In the brain, the gray matter forms
    Outer covering or cortex
  61. The horns of the spinal cord consist of what matter
    Grey matter

  62. The choroid plexus does what
    Produces Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)
  63. Choroid plexus consists of
    Invaginated folds of pia mater, rich in capillaries, covered by simple cuboidal or low columnar epithelium
  64. The venous sinuses are located in the
    Dura mater
  65. The pia mater is completely separated from the underlying neural tissue by
    Neuroglial cells
  66. Blood-Brain Barrier is contributed by
    Endothelial cells of the capillaries and their tight junctions
  67. What molecules can easily enter the BBB
    O2, H2O, CO2, and small, lipid-soluble materials, can easily enter
  68. Cerebral cortex is divided into
    Six layers
  69. Cerebellar cortex histologically has what three layers
    • Molecular
    • Purkinje
    • Granule
  70. Neurons can not proliferate but can
    Repair their axons in PNS
  71. Astrocytic scar called gliosis is from
    A damaged area repaired by the proliferation of astrocytes
  72. Anterograde degeneration (Wallerian degeneration)
    When a nerve fiber is cut or crushed in the peripheral nervous system, the portion that is distal to the cell body degenerates via macrophages. Schwann cells then create a corridor that sprouting nerves from the cell body end will travel through for a new connection
  73. During Anterograde degeneration, what happens to the muscle that was originally attached
    It undergoes atrophy
