                      1. Threshold stimulus reached
                      2. Voltage-gated Na+ channels open, Na+ rushes in
                      3. As more Na+ enters, more Na+ channels are triggered to open
                      4. Potential continues up to +3- mV
              ii. Repolarization
                      1. Na+ channels close quickly
                      2. Voltage-gated K+ channels open, K+ leaves cell
                      3. Negative charge is restored inside cell
             iii. Hyperpolarization
                      1. K+ channels remain open longer, more K+ leaves cell
                      2. Membrane potential drops below resting potential (to -90 mV)
                      3. K+ channels close
             iv. Restoration to Resting Potential

              v. Refractory Period
                      1. Absolute – another action potential CAN’T be generated even with
                         a supra-threshold stimulus
                      2. Relative – another action potential CAN be stimulated but only by a
                         supra-threshold stimulus (can occur once the Na+ channels are reset
                         but the K+ channels are still open)

              iii. Increased Ca2+ triggers exocytosis of synaptic vesicles
              iv. Neurotransmitters released into synaptic cleft
               v. Neurotransmitters bind to receptors on post-synaptic cell membrane which
                   opens ligand-gated ion channels causing a graded potential

c. Image Formation
       i. Light
              1. Wavelengths of radiation from 400-700 nm are visible
              2. Short, higher energy (violet); long, lower energy (red)
      ii. Image Formation
              1. Refraction of Light Rays
                    a. Light bent by cornea and lens brings a small focus spot on the
                        fovea centralis of the retina
              2. Accommodation
                    a. Increased curvature of lens by contraction of ciliary muscles
                        (pulls ciliary body toward lens to relieve tension)
                    b. Allows focus on close objects
                    c. “Near Point” is closest you can see an object clearly without
              3. Constriction of Pupil
                    a. Narrower diameter keeps light going through center of lens
                        and blocks excess light rays
     iii. Convergence
              1. Two eyes come together to be sure the light rays from an object hit
                 both retinas at about the same place – makes one image in brain
              2. The closer the object, the more your eyes must converge

                    b. Cones – bright light, color & sharp focus
              3. Bipolar Cells – receive signals from photoreceptors and send them
                 on to ganglion cells
              4. Horizontal Cells – collect signals from multiple rods in bipolar layer
              5. Ganglion Cells – receive signals from bipolar and horizontal cells and
                 axons become optic nerve
      v. Physiology of Vision
              1. Photoreceptors & Pigments
                    a. Rods – end stuck in pigmented layer contains photoreceptor
                        discs formed by the cell body at a rate of 1-3 per hour to
                        replace worn out ones
                    b. Cones – end stuck in pigmented layer contains folds instead
                        of discs; three types (blue, green, red)
                    c. Pigment – rhodopsin (retinal + opsin)
                             i. Retinal – light-absorbing part, derived from Vitamin A
                            ii. Opsin – different for each receptor type
                   2. Light/Dark Adaptation
                          a. Light – takes seconds to adapt to light from dark
                          b. Dark – takes many minutes to adapt to dark from light
                                   i. Only rods are functioning, even colored light appears
                                      as gray/white

                                  ii. Glutamate INHIBITS bipolar cells, no signal is sent to
                                      ganglion cells/optic nerve

                                   i. Na+ channels close, no Glutamate is released from
                                      cones & rods
                                  ii. Bipolar cells are NOT inhibited by Glutamate, so they
                                      send a signal to the ganglion cells
                                 iii. Action potential in ganglion cells along Optic nerve

            vi. The Visual Pathway
                   1. Processing in Retina
                          a. 126 million photoreceptors converge into 1 million ganglion
                              cells (rods at ratio of 6-600 rods per ganglion cell, cones at
                              ratio of 1 to 1 for sharper focus and detail)
                          b. Horizontal cells combine information and can inhibit bipolar
                              cells next to excited cones, enhancing contrast and sharpness
                   2. Processing in Brain
                          a. Optic nerve  Optic chiasma (cross-over)  Optic tract
                          b. Binocular vision – signals from both eyes mix at chiasma and
                              go to both sides of brain (overlapping part of image)
                                   i. Far right peripheral vision to left brain only
                                  ii. Far left peripheral vision to right brain only
                          c. Likely that shape, color, and position/movement are all
                              processed separately in the brain

b. Physiology of Hearing
       i. Sound
              1. Pressure waves moving through a medium (air, water, solid, etc.)
              2. Frequency determines pitch (higher – higher), 20-20,000 audible
              3. Amplitude determines volume (higher – louder) 60 talking normally,
                 greater than 140 painful, over 90 consistently leads to hearing loss
               ii. Physiology of Hearing
                       1. Sound directed into auditory canal
                       2. Tympanic membrane vibrates at same frequency and amplitude
                       3. Vibrations transferred to ossicles
                       4. Stapes vibrates the membrane over the oval window
                       5. Perilymph in scala vestibule acts as medium for sound waves
                       6. Waves move through cochlea inward through scala vestibule, then
                           back outward through scala tympani and out the round window
                       7. As the waves move through, the vestibular membrane vibrates, and
                           the endolymph in the cochlear duct becomes the medium for sound
                       8. Waves in the endolymph cause the basilar membrane to vibrate,
                           moving hair cells whose hairs are stuck in the tectorial membrane –
                           this causes hair cells to generate a nerve impulse to the Cochlear
                           branch of the Vestibulocochlear nerve
              iii. Auditory Pathway
                       1. Cochlear branch  vestibulocochlear nerve  medulla  pons
                           (some cross-over here)  primary auditory area
48. Equilibrium
       a. Static & Dynamic
                i. Static – maintains body position in response to gravity
               ii. Dynamic – maintains body position in response to movement
       b. Otolithic Organs
                i. Saccule & Utricle of vestibule
               ii. Macula – thickened part of the wall have hair cells with hair bundles stuck
                   in otolithic membrane (gelatinous)
              iii. Otolithic membrane moves as your head moves (tilt, up/down)
              iv. Movement causes hair cells to generate action potential along Vestibular
                   branch of Vestibulocochlear nerve
       c. Semicircular Ducts
                i. Anterior, Posterior & Lateral
               ii. Ampulla – crista with hair cells and supporting cells, hair bundles stuck in
                   cupula (gelatinous)
              iii. Cupula moves as endolymph flows through semicircular ducts as your head
                   moves (rotation)
              iv. Movement causes hair cells to generate action potential along Vestibular
                   branch of Vestibulocochlear nerve
       d. Equilibrium Pathways
                i. Vestibulocochlear nerve sends signals to vestibular area of cerebral cortex
                   and the motor nerve nuclei in pons and medulla so corrective movements
                   can be stimulated
