Ca2+ ATPase D. 1 C. A decreased extracellular K+ concentration will result in hyperpolarization of the nerve. Because potassium is the major intracellular cation in nerves, major alterations in the body’s store of potassium can have a significant effect on the resting membrane potential of the nerve and thus its ability to propagate electrical signals. From the Nernst equation, we can easily see that decreasing the extracellular K+ concentration will result in a larger negative value for the resting membrane potential for potassium.
She states that her hands feel stiff and clumsy and that she has difficulty buttoning her clothes or using her keys. She has fallen several times in the past couple of weeks when walking up and down stairs at home. Lately, both she and her husband have noticed that she will “stumble over words” when she talks.

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?
