Activity 1
Pre-Lab Quiz
K+ inside a cell = 150 mM; K+ outside a cell = 5 mM
Na+ inside a cell = 5 mM; Na+ outside a cell = 150 mM
Stop & Think question
What is the polarity of the resting membrane potential (voltage)? Negative What does it mean that the voltage just inside the membrane is negative? B Membrane of most cells contains K+ leak channels…..b

What will happen to the resting membrane potential if the extracellular K+ concentration is increase? Less negative What happens to diffusion of K+ leaving the cell if you increase extracellular K+? decreases diffusion of K+ out of the cell Which way would Na+ move across the membrane if there wer open Na channels? A. into the cell The membrane has open K+ channels and changing….B. mostly closed Post-Lab Quiz

1. A negative membrane potential was recorded when the tip of the microelectrode was: a. In the extracellular solution just outside the cell body 2. Which of the following caused a change in membrane potential from -70 to -40 in the cell body? a. An increase in extracellular K+

3. Which of the following has the most negative voltage?
a. Between the outside of the axon and outside the cell body with control K+ ECF b. Between the outside of the axon and outside the cell body with High K+ ECF c. Between the inside of the axon and the outside of the axon with control K+ ECF d. Between the inside of the axon and the outside of the axon with High K+ ECF Activity 2

Pre-Lab Quiz
1 = c; 2= e; 3 = c; 4 = c
Stop& Think Questions
The adequate stimulus for a Pacinian corpuscle is pressure or vibration on the skin. Which of the following modalities will induce the largest amplitude receptor potential in the Pacinian corpuscle? C. moderate-intensity pressure Post-Lab quiz

1. A very intense stimulus can sometimes stimulate sensory neurons that have evolved for a different modality. Thus, with a blow to the eye, one “sees stars/” In this example the photoreceptors...
