Sample questions:
The opening of which of the following ion channels is the mechanism through which -aminobutyric acid (GABA) decreases neuronal activity?
Which of the following electrophysiological techniques is directed at assessing the response of individual ionic channels in the membrane of a neuron?
A useful technique in psychopharmacological research is the in vivo preparation, wherein a drug that elicits a characteristic behavioral response can be administered to examine how that drug affects neurons that are likely to participate in the behavioral response. Although in vivo electrophysiological recordings provide the most direct link between neurophysiology and behavior, this technique has which of the following limitations?
