Human Nervous System

Nervous system

1)What is a reflex arc? Name its minimum components. 2)What is the function of the thalamus? the hypothalamus? the cerebellum? 3)Discuss how the brain is protected by bone, membranes, fluid, and capillaries. 4)What are two functions of the spinal cord? 5)How many pairs of spinal nerves are there? How do they arise?

Neurotransmitters: Functions and Impact on Behavior

1. Describe neurotransmitters, their function, and impact on behavior. 2. Discuss one neurotransmitter in detail describing the effect it has on our bodies and connection with disease. 3. Discuss the importance of biology for understanding behavior. Please help me with these questions. Thank you.

Biological influences

Discuss neurotransmitters, their function, and impact on behavior. Discuss one neurotransmitter in detail describing the effect it has on our bodies and connection with disease. Discuss the importance of biology for understanding behavior.

Nerve action potential and conduction velocity

I have to do a lab report on the nerve action potential and conduction velocity and I am having trouble findingjournal articles. The purpose of thelab was to introduce us to the action potential and how it can be regulated by changing the strength and duration of the electrical stimulus (we used the sciatic nerve from a frog).

Tyrosine: An Amino Acid

What would occur to the ability to produce neurotransmitters if the amino acid tyrosine was missing? What neurotransmitters would be affected and why? What functional losses to the body could result? Be specific.
