  • Neural pathways
    • Converging NP
      • Impulses from several neurons travel to one neuron
        • increases the sensitivity to excitatory on inhibitory signals
    • Diverging NP
      • Impulses from one neuron travel to several neurons so affects more than one destination at the same time
      • Allows fie motor control of muscles in the hand and coordinated control of body temperature
    • reverberating NP
      • neurons later in the pathway link with earlier neurons sending the impulse back the pathway
        • Allows repeated stimulation - controls rhythmic activities such as breathing
