  • What is the difference between the allele A and a of a gene?

    They are identical in most of their sequence and differ only at one or several nucleotides of the thousands of nucleotides that make up the gene
  • When do DNA molecules replicate?

    During the S phase of cell division
  • What are 3 ways by which a segment of SNA can be characterized and tracked?

    1. Direct sequencing (sequence alleles (A and a) in the parents and the meiotic products: the result would be that one half of the products would have the A DNA sequence and one half would have the a DNA sequence)
    2. Restriction Fragment Lenght Polymorphism
    3. PCR
  • What is, at a molecular level, the primary phenotype of a gene?

    The protein it produces
  • What is a null allele?

    A mutant allele that has no simalarities with the wild-type function (non functioning allele caused by a genetic mutation)
  • 6.1.1 General principles of percention

  • When do you perceive an object?

  • In terms of which factors does your brain code information?

    In terms of which neuron respond, their amount of response and the timing of their response
  • The law of specific nerve energies

    Whatever excites a particular nerve esthablishes a special kind of energy unique to that nerve / the brain somehow interprets the action potentials from the auditory nerve as sounds etc.
  • What does the  'amount of response' mean?

    How many action potentials a neuron sends per unit of time
  • 6.1.2 The eye and it´s connections to the brain
