Sample text

The basal plates and alar plates of the mantle layer are separated from each other by the sulcus limitans, a longitudinal furrow extending the entire length of the future spinal cord ·· Neuroblasts, which begin their differentiation as relatively spherical cells, form two processes at opposite poles. Usually, one of the processes, the dendrite, begins to arborize, whereas the other process, the axon, remains unbranched. The manner in which the axon and dendrite are established and modified, permits neurons to be classified as unipolar (pseudounipolar), bipolar, and multipolar (Fig.

The various types of neurotransmitters and neuromodulators are discussed in Chapter 4. Classification of neurons The number of processes a neuron possesses permits a classification of these cells into the following categories: unipolar, bipolar, multipolar, and pseudounipolar neurons (Fig. 8). Unipolar neurons are rare in vertebrates; they possess no dendrites, only an axon. Bipolar neurons, such as the ones in the olfactory mucosa, possess an axon and a dendrite, whereas multipolar neurons, such as the motoneurons of the spinal cord, have a single axon and two or more dendrites.

The dendrite (or soma) of neuron C. The axon terminal of neuron A releases a chemical messenger destined for Cl− ion channels of the axon terminal of neuron B. The binding of the ligands opens Cl− ion channels causing an influx of Cl− ions into the axon terminal of neuron B, hyperpolarizing its presynaptic membrane and making it much more difficult to open its voltage-gated Ca2+ ion channels. This event makes it less likely that neuron B will be able to release its chemical messengers intended for neuron C, and it is this inhibition of the activity of neuron B that is referred to as presynaptic inhibition.
