Spinal cord and cardiac muscle or glands
When eliciting the corneal reflex, which muscles contract to cause the eye to close shut?
True or False-- When eliciting the corneal reflex, sensory input is relayed along the trigeminal nerve (CN V), and motor output is relayed along the facial nerve (CN VII).

Somatic reflexes can be either [a], if the information travels through the brain, or [b], if the information travels through the spinal cord.
a. cranial b. spinal
The parasympathetic division of the ANS is also called the [blank] division because of its anatomical location.
what four cranial nerves carry parasympathetic information?

The parasympathetic nerves that innervate structures within the pelvic cavity arise from the [blank].
The sympathetic division of the ANS is also called the [blank] division because of its anatomical location
Sympathetic ganglia that connect to spinal nerves via the white and gray communicating rami are the [blank] ganglia.
The major sympathetic ganglia that lie on top of the unpaired abdominal blood vessels (celia trunk, superior mesenteric artery, inferior mesenteric artery) are known as [blank] ganglia because of their anatomic location relative to the vertebral column.
what are the four sympathetic outflow pathways?
spinal nerve, postganglionic sympatheic nerve, splanchnic nerve, adrenal medulla
The sensory organs involved in the patellar reflex are called [a] and they are located within this group of muscle [b].
a. muscle spindles b. quadriceps femoris
The [blank] nerve carries efferent input of the corneal reflex
protective; to detect pressure on the cornea
What are the general senses?

Lamellated (Pacinian) corpuscles that detect deep pressure are located within the
reticular layer of the dermis
Taste receptors on the posterior third of the tongue are innervated by the (a) , while taste receptors on the anterior two-thirds of the tongue are innervated by the .(b)
a. glossopharyngeal nerve (CN IX) b. facial nerve (CN VII)
Which sensory receptor is located deep within the reticular layer of the dermis

what cell is located at apical surface of olfactory epithelium and upport the specialized cells
what cell is located at middle of olfactory epithelium, between apical and basal surface and are bipolar, smell receptors
Olfactory receptor cells
what kind of cells are found in part of the taste bud, light in color and attached to nerve
what kind of cells are found in part of the taste bud, dark in color and are not attached to nerve
what kind of cells in the taste buds detect chemicals and transmits nerve signals
Detect chemicals and transmits nerve signals
Of the cell layers that compose the retina, which layer contains cells whose exons leave the eye at the optic disc to become the optic nerve?
Ganglion cell layer
The spiral organ is located within the [a] of the cochlear. This chamber is separated from the scala tympani by the [b], and separated from the scala vestibule by the [c], and is filled with a fluid called [d].
a. scala media b. basilar membrane c. vestibular membrane d. endolymph

in the eye, what is the pigmented, vascular layer found between the retina and the sclera
in the eye, what is the thickened extention of the vascular tunic containing the ciliary muscle
in the eye, what is the smooth muscle within the ciliary body composed of both circular and radial muscle fibers
in the eye, what is the transparent, biconves structure composed of highly specialized, modified epithelium
in the eye, what is the "yellow spot" on the retina located suoerior to the optic disc on the posterior wall of the eye
in the eye, what is the location where the axons of ganglion cells exit the eye to form the optic nerve
in the eye, what is the neural tunic of the eye; composed of several layers of neurons involved with transducing light energy into nerve signals
in the eye, what is the middle layer of the wall of the eye, containing blood vessels and pigment molecules
in the eye, what is the metallic-appearing, opalescent inner layer of the sclera; it is present in many animals (e.g. the cow eye), but not the human eye
in the ear, what is the fibrocartilage-lined tube that connects the middle-ear cavity to the nasal cavity
in the ear, what are the three tiny bones (malleus, incus, and stapes) found within the inner ear
in the ear, what is the canal leading from the auricle of the ear to the tympanic membrane
external acoustic meatus

True or False-- The posterior pituitary gland arises embryonically as a downgrowth of the diencephalon of the brain, therefore it is nervous tissue.
This endocrine gland consists of a cortex and medulla, with each part embryonically derived from different tissues.
The parathyroid glands secrete parathyroid hormone in response to (increasing or decreasing) blood calcium levels.
