Human Nervous System

Aspects if the brain are discussed in terms of function.

Describe neurotransmitters in terms of what they are, their general function within the body, and their impact on behavior. Pick one neurotransmitter and discuss the effect it has on our bodies; particularly in connection with disease. Once you have discussed a specific disease associated with neurotransmitter imbalance, d

Fiber tracts

Describe the functional problems that would be experienced by a person in which these fiber tracts have been cut: (a) lateral spinothalamic, (b) anterior and posterior spinocerebellar, (c) tectospinal.

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

Describe 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.
