5 Matching questions

  1. Midbrain
  2. Charcteristics of CNS
  3. Vertebral-Basilar Artery Impairment
  4. Dura Mater
  5. Cerebellum
  1. a *Location = POST. TO BRAIN, BELOW OCCIPITAL LOBE
    *Function = controls COORDINATION of MVMT & BALANCE, POSTURE/BALANCE - MM TONE AND POSITIONING OF EXTREMITIES IN SPACE.
    *Responsible for "FINE TUNING MVMTS"
    *Controlls = ability to perform RAPID ALTERNATING MVMTS
    *Damage = IPSIOLATERAL IMPAIRMANTS
  2. b *Integration and coordination
    *Covered in a system of meninges-suspended in CSF
    *Protected by skull and veterbral column
    *Gray Matter-unmyelinated neurons, cappillaries, glial cells, cell bodies and dendrites
    *White Matter-myelinated axons, nerve fibers w/o dendrites
    White Matter of SC=3 funiculi (ant., post., lateral)
  3. c *Loss of consciousness,
    *Hemiplegia or quadriplegia,
    *Comatose or vegetative state,
    *Inability to speak,
    *Locked-in syndrome,
    *Vertigo,
    *Nystagmus,
    *Dysphagia,
    *Dysarthria,
    *Syncope,
    *Ataxia
  4. d *COMPONENT OF BS
    *Location = BASE OF BRAIN - ABOVE SC
    *Connects = FOREBRAIN / HINDBRAIN
    *Function = LG RELAY AREA FOR INFO PASSING FROM CEREBRUM / CEREBELLUM / AND SC
    *Reflex center = VISUAL, AUDITORY, TACTILE RESPONSES
  5. e *Thick, outermost layer of the meninges surrounding and protecting the brain and spinal cord

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. *Three membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord,
    *Dura mater=outer most; lines the periosteum of skull; protects the brain
    *Arachnoid mater=Middle menige; impermeabel; loose:
    *Pia mater=inner most meniges; covers contours of brain; forms the chorid plexus in ventricular system
    which provide protection, support & small amounts of nourishment
  2. *Separates = OCCIPITAL from the PARIETAL lobe
  3. *Cranial Nerves and Ganglia-12 pair-exit skull via foramina
    *Spinal Nerves and Ganglia/Plexus-31 pair
    8 cervical; 12 thoracic; 5 Lumbar; 5 Sacral; 1 coccygeal
  4. *Location = SUPERIOR TO MEDULLA
    *Function = A w/ RR / Assoc w/ Orientation of head in relation to VISUAL and AUDITORY STIMULI
    *Cranial Nerves V-VIII (5-8)
  5. *A long narrow slit or groove that divides an organ into lobes

5 True/False questions

  1. Fetal Development of Brain (4)Resulting 5 cavities persist in the mature brain as fluid-filled spaces called ventricles
    Forebrain (anterior)=>Cerebrum and Basal Ganglia
    Forebrain (posterior)=>Diencephalon
    Midbrain=Midbrain
    Hindbrain=>Cerebellum, Pons, Medulla Oblongata

          

  2. Parietal Lobe*Associated w/ = SENSATION OF TOUCH, KINESTHESIA, *PERCEPTION OF VIBRATION AND T⁰
    *Meaning to OBJECTS**
    *Interprets language /words
    *Spacial/visual perception
    **Receives info from other areas of brain regarding = HEARING, VISION, MOTOR, SENSORY, MEMORY.**

          

  3. Impairments of Frontal Lobe*DOMINANT HEMISPHERE (L) = Agraphia, finger Agnosia, Alexia
    *NON-DOMINANT HEMISPHERE (R) = Constructional / *Dressing Apraxia, Anosognosia
    *Contralateral Sensory Deficits
    *Impaired LANGUAGE COMPREHENSION
    *Impaired TASTE

          

  4. Impairments of Occipital Lobe*DOMINANT HEMISPHERE (L) = Agraphia, finger Agnosia, Alexia
    *NON-DOMINANT HEMISPHERE (R) = Constructional / *Dressing Apraxia, Anosognosia
    *Contralateral Sensory Deficits
    *Impaired LANGUAGE COMPREHENSION
    *Impaired TASTE
