Neurobiology and Medication Adherence Concepts NURS 6630
Answer B should read a “discrete” (not multitude) action on the post synaptic neuron.
A, C, and D are misrepresentations of what occurs when you increase Serotonin in the synaptic cleft. There is no effect on the pre-synaptic neuron, and the increases in Serotonin result in a reduction of receptor concentration on the post-synaptic neuron.
All of the other options are mis-sequenced in signal conduction.
1Neurons are classified in several different ways. From the following statements, select which ones are true.
- The two structural classifications are projection neurons and local inter-neurons.
- Function classifications are made up of two subcategories: excitatory and inhibitory.
- Histological classification includes bipolar, unipolar, and multipolar.
- Classifications using a combination of structural, functional, and neurotransmitter type provide the most robust and useful description.
- Classification by neurotransmitter type alone provides the most useful description.
Statement II would need to include modulatory function to be correct, and Statement V does not include structural and functional classification systems.
Answer B is fictitious, D is a type of rapid effector pathway, and A represents G-protein coupled receptors.
It is introduced as early as possible in treatment to mitigate the risks associated with nonadherence.
B represents antagonism of 5HT1a, C represents a 5HT2a agonist, and D represents what happens when you inhibit SERT.
These are signs of an altered mood.
A represents a patient taking his medication sporadically, B represents a patient taking too much medication, and D represents a patient taking a lower-than-prescribed dose but daily
The area of the brain in question is part of the thalamus, which is located in the subcortical structures. The other options are incorrect, geographically speaking.
Skills include adaptive thinking, problem solving, use of cues, and support.
all the other options are missing neurotransmitters considered important in psychiatry
Microglial cells are small, phagocytic cells related to peripheral macrophages.
Answer A represents a neuron communicating with itself and Answer B states that the synapse is the space between the cell body (not dendrites) and axon terminals.
Options B and C are mismatched, and Option A shows effects days to weeks after activation.
A and B are both steps in the activities seen leading up to modification of gene expression.
Answer D is fictitious, B represents ion channel receptors, and C is a type of rapid effector pathway.
D is associated with positive symptoms in schizophrenia, B is associated with lactation, A is associated with affect.
A and B are inhibitory, and D is involved in mood and sleep.
