Converts glucose into pyruvate, creating ATP and NADH along the way. It's the first "chunk" of respiration and happens in both aerobic and anaerobic respiration.
It occurs in the cytosol and has a prepatory (investment) phase where ATP (I think 2?) is consumed, and in the end, 4 is produced. No actual oxygen is spent during this time; it's just a giant string of enzyme-run reactions.

Right on everything, the only other thing I would have put was that "glycolysis" means "splitting of sugar". :D

A nerve cell has reached a phase called "G0".

Explain what G0 is.

G0 phase- The "quiet" phase.

Basically, this is the cycle between G1 and S (kind of) that keeps forcing the cell back into the G1 phase. In this phase, the cell is neither dividing nor preparing to divide. Usually, the G1 checkpoint determines whether the cell should enter G0 or move onto S.
