Question details

In a given region of neural tissue, imagine that the the ionic concentration gradients of several important ions are as follows: [K++]: higher in the intracellular fluid than extracellular fluid [Na++]: higher in the extracellular fluid than intracellular fluid [Mg2+2+]: higher in the extracellular fluid than intracellular fluid [Ca2+2+]: higher in the extracellular fluid than intracellular fluid [Cl−−]: higher in the extracellular fluid than intracellular fluid

Consider a neurotransmitter that binds to its receptor (a ligand-gated ion channel) and opens it. Given the information above, which of the following statements is true?

O A if the receptor is a K channel, an EPSP will be generated. O B if the receptor is a Na channel, an IPSP will be generated
