B. noticed the onset of double vision and a tremor that was worse when she attempted to perform voluntary actions ("intention tremor"). On examination, the neurologist found signs suggesting demyelination in the brain stem and cerebellum. Again, the patient recovered with only mild residua. 's history is typical for patients with the relapsingremitting form of multiple sclerosis. This disorder, which occurs in young adults (20-50 years old), is due to inflammatory destruction of myelin sheaths within the CNS.

As a result of this activity-induced increase in Ca 2+ in the presynaptic terminal, there is phosphorylation of proteins called synapsins, which appear to cross-link vesicles to the cytoskeleton, thereby preventing their movement. This action permits fusion of vesicles with the presynaptic membrane, resulting in a rapid release of neurotransmitter. 0 ms at chemical synapses. This sequence is shown in diagrammatic form at the neuromuscular junction, a prototypic synapse, in Figure 3-9. SYNAPTIC TRANSMISSION Directly Linked (Fast) Transmitter molecules carry information from the presynaptic neuron to the postsynaptic neuron by binding at the postsynaptic membrane with either of two types of postsynaptic receptor.

The myelin sheath is not continuous along the entire length of the axon. On the RO: Basic Histology, 7th ed. ) contrary, it is periodically interrupted by small gaps (approximately 1 |im long), called the nodes of Ranvier, where the axon is exposed. In mammalian myelinated fibers, the voltage-sensitive Na* and K* channels are not distributed uniformly. Na* channels are clustered in high density (about 1000/(im ) in the axon membrane at the node of Ranvier, but are sparse in the internodal axon membrane, under the myelin.
