olfactory receptorWhich of the following responded to a chemical stimulus?
increasedWhen the intensity of the appropriate stimulus was increased, the amplitude of the response _______.
threshold voltageThe minimum voltage that is required to generate an action potential is called the _______.
no change to the action potentialIncreasing the voltage resulted in which of the following?
hyperpolarizedAn axon that is more negative than the resting membrane potential is said to be _______.

another action potential can be generated provided the stimulus is large enough.During the relative refractory period, _______.
a second action potential is generated until the interval reaches the absolute refractory periodWhen the interval between the stimuli decreases, _______.
