a shallow groove on the surface of the cortex is called a
all of the following are structures of the limbic system except the
caudate nucleus
an individual was involved in an accident that severed his spinal cord between T12 and L1. This would result in
an individual who is able to trace a picture of a bicycle with his or her finger but could not recognize it as a bicycle is most likely to have sustained damage to the
visual association area
beginning about 90 minutes after the onset of sleep, the stage during which most skeletal muscles, except the diaphragm, are paralyzed is called
broca's area

cell bodies of the sensory neurons of the spinal nerves are located in the
dorsal root ganglia of the spinal chord

during this stage of sleep, it is very easy to awaken the sleeper and they may even deny that they were asleep. Th EEG shows alpha waves.
Stage 1
During this stage of sleep, sleep spindles appear and typify the stage
stage 2
during this stage of sleep, the eyes move under the eyelids and dreaming occurs
during this stage of sleep, theta and delta waves begin to appear
stage 3
during this stage of sleep, vital signs, blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature, reach their lowest normal levels
stage 4
if the caudal portion of the neural tube failed to develop properly the
spinal chord may be affected
important nuclei of the indirect, multineural, system that receive impulses from the equilibrium apparatus of the inner ear and help to maintain balance by varying muscle tone of postural muscles are the
vestibular nuclei
in the illicit manufacture of meperidine, an opioid analgesic, a neurotoxin called MPTP may be synthesized. MPTP targets the substantia nigra in humans. In people who take MPTP mistaking it for meperidine you would expect them to develop

lateral spinothalmic
nuclei of cranial nerves, V, VI, and VII are found in the
REM sleep is associated with
temporary skeletal muscle inhibition except for ocular muscles and diaphragm
ridges of tissue on the surface of the cerebral hemispheres are called
spastic paralysis suggest involvement of the
upper motor neurons
spinocerebellar tracts
carry proprioceptive inputs to the cerebellum
the arbor vitae refers to the
cerebellar white matter
the area in which the nerves serving the upper limbs arise is called the
cervical enlargment
the area of the brain that associates experiences necessary for the production of abstract ideas, judgement and conscience is called the
prefrontal area
the area of the cortex that is responsible for sensations of the full bladder and the feeling that your lungs will burst when you hold your breath too long is the
visceral sensory area
the axons from this area, are called what, form the major pyramidal tracts
primary motor cortex
the blood brain barrier is effective against
metabolic wastes such as urea
the brain area that regulates activities that control the state of wakefulness or alertness of the cerebral cortex is the
reticular formation
the brainstem consists of the
midbrain, pons, and medulla
the central sulcus separates which lobes
frontal and parietal
the executive suite of the brain is called the
the frontal lobe is separated from the temporal lobe by the
lateral sulcus
the gateway to the cerebrum is called the
the motor command area of the brain is called the
the point in an adult where the spinal cord terminates is called the
conus medullaris
the primary auditory cortex is located in the
temporal lobe
the process of linking new facts with old facts already stored in memory is called
the stage that appears to be critical to emotional health and which is shortened by many medicines, illicit drugs and alcohol, is called what? It may be a time during which the CNS "debugs" connections

this anchors the spinal cord in place and is called the
filium terminale
this area called the what is primarily responsible for maintaining homeostasis, it is the main visceral control center of the body
this collection of nerve roots at the inferior end of the vertebral column is called the
cauda equina
