Sample text

Depolarization of the T tubules causes a conformational change in its dihydropyridine receptor, which opens Ca2+ release channels (ryanodine receptors) in the nearby SR, causing release of Ca2+ from the SR into the intracellular fluid. 3. Intracellular [Ca2+] increases. Actin filament + – Myosin head Myosin filament A + – + – ATP ADP D B + – ADP Pi C FIGURE 1-12 Cross-bridge cycle. Myosin “walks” toward the plus end of actin to produce shortening and forcegeneration. ADP = adenosine diphosphate; ATP = adenosine triphosphate; Pi = inorganic phosphate.

Autonomic centers—brain stem and hypothalamus 1. Medulla ■ ■ ■ Vasomotor center Respiratory center Swallowing, coughing, and vomiting centers 2. Pons ■ Pneumotaxic center 3. Midbrain ■ Micturition center 4. Hypothalamus ■ ■ Temperature regulation center Thirst and food intake regulatory centers II. SENSORY SYSTEMS A. Sensory receptors—general ■ ■ are specialized epithelial cells or neurons that transduce environmental signals into neural signals. The environmental signals that can be detected include mechanical force, light, sound, chemicals, and temperature.

Types of arrangements a. One-to-one synapses (such as those found at the neuromuscular junction) ■ An action potential in the presynaptic element (the motor nerve) produces an action potential in the postsynaptic element (the muscle). b. Many-to-one synapses (such as those found on spinal motoneurons) ■ An action potential in a single presynaptic cell is insufficient to produce an action potential in the postsynaptic cell. Instead, many cells synapse on the postsynaptic cell to depolarize it to threshold.
