This activity contains 5 questions.
*
The small space in between the sending neuron and the receiving neuron is the
synaptic cleft.

You are watching: Bioflix activity: how synapses work -- events at a synapse

vesicle.
synaptic terminal.
neurotransmitter.
calcium channel.
*
A molecule that carries information across a synaptic slot is a
synaptic cleft.
sending neuron.
receiving neuron.
synapse.
neurotransmitter.
*
When calcium ions enter the synaptic terminal,
neurotransmitter molecule are easily removed from the synaptic cleft.
they reason vesicles comprise neurotransmitter molecules to fuse come the plasma membrane of the sending out neuron.
they cause an activity potential in the sending neuron.
the within of the receiving neuron becomes an ext negative.
the within of the receiving neuron becomes much more positive.
*
When neurotransmitter molecules bind to receptors in the plasma membrane of the receiving neuron,
the receiving neuron becomes much more negative inside.
the receiving neuron becomes more positive inside.
ion channels in the plasma membrane of the sending neuron open.
vesicles in the synaptic terminal fuse come the plasma membrane that the sending out neuron.
ion networks in the plasma membrane that the receiving neuron open.
*
If a signal native a sending neuron renders the receiving neuron an ext negative inside,
the sending out neuron becomes an ext positive inside.
the sending out neuron becomes more negative inside.
the receiving neuron is less likely to create an action potential.
the receiving neuron immediately generates an action potential.

the receiving neuron is more likely to generate an activity potential.
