5 True/False questions
a → The myogenic mechanism of autoregulation that occurs within afferent arterioles of the kidney is an __________ control of GFR.
a → Both the proximal convoluted tubule and the distal convoluted tubule reside in the cortex of the kidney.
b → Fluid contained within the lumen of a nephron loop would be considered to be:
b → If there is an increase in systemic blood pressure, the resulting stretch of afferent arterioles results in reflexive:
vasoconstriction of efferent arterioles to raise GFR.
vasoconstriction of afferent arterioles to keep GFR normal.
vasodilation of efferent arterioles to lower GFR.
vasodilation of afferent arterioles to keep GFR normal.
