Enough pharmacology for now.
Loosely related to local anaesthetics, some statements on nerve conduction today
BT_RA 1.1 Describe the physiology of nerve conduction
Entry of Na+ into the nerve cell during an action potential, causes further Na+ to enter the cell in a positive feedback loop TRUE/FALSE
A nerve cell membrane is charged at rest, with negative charges aligned along the outside of the nerve cell membrane TRUE/FALSE
Propagation of an nerve action potential is unidirectional along the conducting nerve fibre TRUE/FALSE
Saltatory conduction refers to conduction of the action potential in unmyelinated nerve fibres TRUE/FALSE
During the absolute refractory period, a supra maximal stimulus is required to elicit an action potential TRUE/FALSE
