Acetylocholine
in the autonomic nervous system, all preganglionic fibers release the neurotransmitter:
Norepinephrine
in the autonimic nervous system, most sympathetic postganglionic fibers release the neurotransmitter:
Sympathetic Preganglionic Fibers
the adrenal medulla recieves stimulation from:
Lumbar Region of the Spinal Cord
some sympathetic preganglionic neurons have their cell bodies in the:
Norepinephrine
an adrenergic neuron produces the neurotransimtter:
Sympathetic and Parasympathetic
the efferents portion of the ANS has two principal divisions, the:
Brain Stem or Spinal Cord
the cell bodies of preganglionic neruons in the ANS are located in the:
S2 - S4
the cell bodies of parasympathetic preganglionic neurons are located in the lateral gray horns of spinal segments:
Adrenal Medulla
the exception to the usual pattern of two efferent neurons in an autonomic motor pathway is the pathway to the:
Lacrimal glands
receives only parasympathetic stimulation:
Paravertebral and Prevertebral Ganglia
pairs of ganglia that receive sympathetic preganglionic fibers:
Paravertebral Ganglia
the sympathetic ganglia that lie in a vertical row on either side of the vertebral column are the:
Prevertebral Ganglia
the sympathetic ganglia that lie close to large abdominal arteries are the:
Celiac Ganglion
the solar plexus is another name for the:
Celiac Plexus
sympathetic postganglionic fibers innervating the stomach, spleen, and liver arise from the:
Celiac Ganglion
the greater splanchnic nerve terminates in the:
Kidney
the major organ that recieves sympathetic stimulation, but not parasympathetic stimulation is the:
Adrenal Medulla
norepinephrine and epinephrine enter the bloodstream when sympathetic stimulation is provided to the:
Erection of the Penis
stimulated by the parasympathetic nervous system:
Cardiac Muscle, Smooth Muscle and Glands
the effector tissues for the autonomic motor neurons are:
Preganglion Neuron
an autonomic motor neuron that extends from the CNS to an autonomic ganglion is called:
Postganglion Neuron
an autonomic motor neuron that extends from an autonomic ganglion to a visceral effector is called:
Cranial Sacral Division
based on the locations of preganglionic cell bodies, the parasympathetic division of the ANS is sometimes called:
Collateral Ganglia
ganglia lying close to large abdominal arteries that receive sympalthetic preganglionic fibers are:
Sympathetic Trunk
ganglia that lie in a vertical row on either side of the vertebral column from the base of the skull to the coccyx
White Remi Communicantes
sympathetic preganglionic fibers that connect the anterior ramus of a spinal nerve with sympathetic trunk ganglia are collectively called:
Gray Rami
sympathetic postganglionic fibers that connect sympathetic trunk ganglia with spinal nerves are collectively called:
Solar Plexus
another name for the celiac ganglion is:
Vagus (X) Nerve
parasympathetic cranial outflow has five components: four pairs of ganglia and the plexuses associated with the:
aCH
cholinergic neurons release the neurotransmitter:
Norepinephrine and Epinephrine
adrenergic neurons release the neurotransmitters:
Adreno Medulla Gland
activation of the sympathetic division of the ANS also results in the release of hormoones from:
Hypothalamus
the major control and integration center of the ANS is the:
Parasympathetic Division of the ANS
the phrase "energy conservation - restorative system" describes the activites of the:
Sympathetic Division of the ANS
the "fight or flight response" is a term used to describe the physiological responses triggered by the:
