This Assignment for this unit is a Lab that you will complete in WileyPLUS. You will be focusing on action potentials. In order for neurons to communicate with each other, nerve impulses are used. This lab will allow you to measure the amplitude of an action potential, as well as be able to measure the effect of increasing frequency of stimulations on the generated action potentials. Action potentials are not something that you really think about in your daily life. You don’t worry that you can move your arm to feed yourself or that your fingers can type a response in the Unit 9 Discussion Board or that you are able to read and understand this paragraph. You just take for granted that this all happens. However, if you did not have action potentials you could not do all that you do. In other words, your brain would not be able to synthesize the information it is flooded with on a daily basis and you would not be able to function. This lab will show you the importance of action potentials and why your body needs them.
This Assignment is due by the end of Unit 9.
