  5. Autonomic Nervous System
  1. a An efferent branch of the vertebrate peripheral nervous system that regulates the internal environment; consists of the sympathetic, parasympathetic, and enteric divisions.
  2. b ...
  3. c An extension of the hypothalamus composed of nervous tissue that secretes oxytocin and antidiuretic hormone made in the hypothalamus, temporary storage site for these hormones.
  4. d The membrane potential characteristic of a nonconducting excitable cell, within the inside of the cell more negative than the outside
  5. e Tissue made up of neurons and supportive cells.

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. A phenomenon of neural integration in which the membrane potential of the post-synaptic cell is determined by the combined effect of EPSPs or IPSPs produced nearly simultaneously by different synapses.
  2. The metabolic rate of a resting, fasting and non stressed endotherm at a comfortable temperature.
  3. The regulatory protein that control the position of tropomyosin on the thin filament.
  4. Tissue consisting of long muscle cells that can contract, either on its own or when stimulated by nerve impulses
  5. A specialized center of body function composed of several different types of tissues

5 True/False Questions

  1. Metabolic RateA longitudinal bundle in a muscle cell (fiber) that contains thin filaments of actin and regulatory proteins and thick filaments of myosin

          

  2. Anterior PituitaryAn extension of the hypothalamus composed of nervous tissue that secretes oxytocin and antidiuretic hormone made in the hypothalamus, temporary storage site for these hormones.

          

  3. Complete ProteinsIn a neuron, a shift in the membrane potential that has an amplitude proportional to signal strength and that decays as it spreads.

          

  4. EPSP (Exitatory post-synaptic potential)An electrical change (depolarization) in the membrane of a post-synaptic cell caused by the binding of an excitatory neurotransmitter from a presynaptic cell to a post-synaptic cell; makes it more likely for a post-synaptic cell to generate an action potential.

          

  5. TissuesA type of motor protein that associates into filaments that interact with actin filaments to cause cell contraction
