2. which one of the following statements is correct about events in a chemical synapse:

  • release of NT into the synaptic cleft
  • arrival of AP at the synaptic cleft
  • outward flow of ca2+ ions into the cleft
  • hyperpolarisation at the presynaptic membrane

3. The resting membrane potential is mainly determined by?

  • the Ca2+ gradient
  • the K+ gradient
  • the Cl- gradient
  • the Na+ gradient
  • the Na+/K+/ATPase

4. which statement concerning the role of Ca2+ in the contraction of skeletal muscle is correct?

  • Ca2+ ions do not play a role in the contractile process
  • the tension of skeletal muscle fibres is partly regulated by G proteins
  • a rise in intracellular Ca2+ allows actin to interact with myosin
  • Ca2+ entry across the plasma membrane is important in sustaining the contraction of skeletal muscle
  • the mitochondria acts as a store of Ca2+ for the contractile process

5. a single somatic motor neuron and all the muscle fibres it innervates =
