Define the units of excitability and give their clinicalapplication? What is meant by Utilization time? (2 + 1 + 1 +1 marks)Q.3: What is Spike Potential? Why Sodium ions cannot pass through Potassiumchannels? Give the ionic basis of Absolute refractory period, After depolarization andAfter Hyperpolarization. (1 + 1 + 1 +1 +1 marks)Q. 4: Define REFRACTORY PERIOD and its types. What is its mechanism? Give thenormal value of ABSOLUTE REFRACTORY PERIOD of skeletal muscle?(2+2+1 )Q.5: what is sattatory conduction? What are its advantages? which nerve fibers have themaximum velocity of conduction? (2004 UHS).Q.6: Explain the impulse conduction along a myelinated nerve fiber.Q.7: Compare the saltatory & non-saltatory conduction of nerve impulse.(5 marks)Q.8: Mr. X fell down and injured his elbow. He consulted a surgeon who told him thatthe nerve near his elbow has been damaged. Later on weakness in the muscles of forearmstarted. Explain the changes occuring in the nerve fiber when these undergo degeneration.(2008 S UHS).Q.9: What is compound action potential? Draw and label it. (2004S UHS).Q. 10:VWhen sciatic nerve is electrically stimulated, which type of potential record isobtained? Draw & explain it.Q.11: What is Walk-along theory & sliding filament model of skeletal musclecontraction?(2.5 + 2.5 marks)Q.12: What is sarcomere? What HISTOLOGIC changes occur in it during the musclecontraction? 2,3 (2004 S UHS).
