cerebrospinal fluid carries small amounts of chemicals like glucose from the --------- to neurons and neuroglia
this protects the brain by preventing the movement of harmful substances and pathogens from the blood int the brain tissue
blood brain barrier
this is a narrow fluid filled cavity foudn along the midline superior to the hypothalamus and between the right and left halves of the thalamus
third ventricle
cerebrospinal fluid is reabsorbed through these fingerlike projections found in the dural venous sinuses
arachnoid villi
this is a netlike region of white and gray matter that extend throughout the brainstem and functions to help maintain consciousness
reticular formation
this structure in the brain contains centers responsible for the the startle reflex in response to loud sounds

white matter protrusions found on the medulla oblongata
medullary nuclei are 1. masses of gray matter in the medulla oblongata 2 masses of white matter in the medulla oblongata 3decussations of the pyramids
1 only
This region of teh brain contains pneumotaxic and apneustic areas that help control respirtaion
The medial lemnisus is a band of white matter that extnds through 1. the medulla oblongata 2. pons 3. midbrain
This portion of the cerebellum contributes to equilbrium and balance
flocculonodular lobe
This region of the brain servbes as the maor relay station for most sensory impulses that reach the primary sensory areas of the cerebral cortex form the spinal cord and brain stem
Which of teh following regions of the brain contain the pineal gland
during brain deveelopment the gyri of the cerebrum are formed because
the gray matter grows faster than the underlying white matter
this portion of the limbic system lies between the hippocampus and the parahippocampus gyrus

internal carotid and vertebral internal jugular
Which of the following statements best describes the structure of the blood brain barrier that provides its functional characteristics
tight junctions tightly seal endothelial cells of capillaries in the brain
A deep indentation found along the medial plane that separates the right and left cerebral hemispheres is called the
longitudinal fissure
These three areas of gray matter found in each erbral hemisphere are important in helping to control the initiation and termination of skeletal muscle movements
basal nuclei
Which of the foolwing terms is used to dsignante an effector that is innerbvated by both the parasympathetic and sympathetiv divisions of the ANS

This autonomic plexus is located anterior to the fifth lumbar vertebra and serves the pelvic viscera
hypogastric plexus
these ganglia contain the cell bodies of the parasympathetiv postganglionc nerurons that serve the parotid salivary gland
