Closing of voltage-gated sodium channels D. 3 Immediately following the time frame in the previous question is a period when an action potential can be generated, but only when a larger than normal stimulus is applied. What is the molecular mechanism responsible for this phenomenon? A. Opening of voltage-gated sodium channels B. Opening of voltage-gated potassium channels C. Slow closing of voltage-gated potassium channels D. 1 A. Lidocaine binds to inactivated sodium channels, preventing the rapid depolarization needed for the initiation of the action potential.

Indd 18 7/30/14 7:34 PM SECTION II: Clinical Cases 19 • Bipolar neurons have two processes attached to an oval-shaped cell body. One process functions as a dendrite and carries information from the periphery of the organism. The other process functions as the axon carrying information toward the central nervous system. Bipolar neurons are found in the retina of the eye and the olfactory epithelium of the nose. • Pseudo-unipolar neurons are a variant of the bipolar neuron and have a single process which emerges from the cell body.

How do the majority of the elements involved in this signaling cascade come to be found in the presynaptic terminal? A. Diffusion B. They are synthesized in the presynaptic terminal C. They are transported there by kinesin interaction with microtubules D. 3 After a neurotransmitter is released from the presynaptic terminal, it interacts with a postsynaptic neuron to cause its effect. Which morphologic feature of the neuron is responsible for receiving synaptic transmissions and transmitting these postsynaptic signals to the rest of the cell?
