5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. gyrus
  2. cerebellum
  3. central nervous system
  4. meninges
  5. dendrite
  1. a convolution or ridge on surface of cerebrum;
    plural gryi
  2. b brain and spinal cord;
    fast communicating organ system; receives sensory input; controls homeostasis (often via endocrine system); controls motor output; center of all mental activity including thought, feeling, learning & memory, and consciousness; aka CNS
  3. c branch-like extension of neuron that conducts electical information toward neuron cell body; often many dendrites
  4. d 3 membranes that cover brain and spinal cord, consisting of the dura mater, pia mater, and arachnoid mater
  5. e "little brain" in the inferior posterior portion of brain; controls and coordinates body movement (and all that goes along with it)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. neurons between sensory and motor neurons;
    99.9% of all neurons are this type
  2. sensory receptor, sensory neuron, interneuron, motor neuron, and effector involved in a reflex
  3. chemical signals released by axon into a synaptic cleft when signaled by an action potential
  4. bundle of axons in PNS
  5. aka efferent nerve;
    carries motor commands (APs) from CNS to muscles

5 True/False questions

  1. excitableproperty of cell that it may create and conduct an electrical current when stimulated;
    eg, neurons & muscle cells
    aka "irritability and conductivity"


  2. sensory neuronneuron that detects specific information about environment (stimulus) and conducts information encoded in action potentials via ascending tracts to the CNS;
    aka Affarent neuron


  3. cell bodypart of cell that performs basic cellular functions; in neurons, also summates inputs received from dendrites


  4. axon"bridge" between brain stem and cerebellum; contains respiratory centers which regulate breathing


  5. sensory nerveaka affarent nerve;
    carries sensory information (APs) to CNS
