5 Matching questions

  1. neurotransmitter
  2. ventral root
  3. spinal cord
  4. pia mater
  5. corpus callosum
  1. a large bundle of axons connecting neurons in both cerebral hemispheres
  2. b chemical signals released by axon into a synaptic cleft when signaled by an action potential
  3. c motor (efferent) branch of each spinal nerve;
    exits spinal cord on ventral side
  4. d part of central nervous system beginning inferior to brainstem down to L2 vertebrae;
    conducts sensory info to brain and motor commands from brain to muscles;
    center is gray matter; external is white matter;
    CSF in central canal and surrounding cord
  5. e thin delicate and deepest meninges layer, directly on brain and spinal cord;
    "pious mother" or "tender mother"

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. bundles of axons sending sensory information "up" to CNS;
  2. portions of cerebrum anterior to central fissure;
    generates motor commands;
    specializes in speech, language, morality, planning, and other high-level functions
  3. "rest-and-digest" division of ANS;
    conserves energy; increases digestion and absorption and relaxtion (ie, heart rate slows, glucose is stored, etc)
  4. sensory (affarent) branch of each spinal nerve;
    enters spinal cord on dorsal side
  5. carry movement commands (as action potentials) from CNS to muscle cells via descending tracts;
    aka Efferent neuron ("Efferent Exits" brain)

5 True/False questions

  1. temporal lobesportions of cerebrum anterior to central fissure;
    generates motor commands;
    specializes in speech, language, morality, planning, and other high-level functions

          

  2. dura materneuron cell bodies;
    in cerebrum, most gray matter is in the cerebral cortex (outermost layer)

          

  3. subdural spacesmall space below dura mater

          

  4. sulcusnetwork of interwoven or intersecting nerves;(eg, cervical, brachial, lumbar)

          

  5. cranial nerves12 pairs of nerves arising from the brain;
    most are mixed nerves
