Sample questions:
Glial cells are divided into several classes. One type of glial cell is called an oligodendrocyte. Which of the statements below describes the primary function of oligodendrocytes?
The cytoskeleton of the neuron has several filamentous components. Which of the following statements describes the microtubules, one of these filamentous components?
Neurons communicate with one another at specialized sites of close membrane apposition called synapses. Some neurons convey information from one region of the brain to the other (projection neurons), whereas other neurons convey information only to neighboring neurons (local circuit interneurons). Which of the following connections describes the synapse between a presynaptic axon terminal with a postsynaptic dendrite?
