7 and 9

axons of olfactory sensory neurons gather into bundles called

filaments of the olfactory nerve

the filaments of the olfactory nerve enter the olfactory bulbs and synapse with

mitral cells

reddish elevation at the medial anthus

lacrimal caruncle

connective tissue within the eyelids

tarsal plates

modified sebaceous glands

tarsal glands

transparent mucous membrane

conjunctiva (palpebral or bulbar)

keep surface of the eye moist

lacrimal apparatus

produces lacrimal fluid

lacrimal gland

fluid empties into nasal cavity

lacrimal sac

anterior one-sixth of the fibrous tunic


allows aqueous humor to drain

scleral venous sinus

vascular, darkly pigmented membrane, prevents scattering of light rays within the eye


thickened ring of tissue which encircles the lens

ciliary body

posterior surface of the ciliary body

ciliary processes

attached around entire circumference of the lens

ciliary zonule

visible colored part of the eye


the round central opening of the iris


protective response of pupil constriction when a bright light is flashed in the eye

pupillary light reflex

sympathetic what muscle of the eye contracts

dilator pupillae

parasympathetic what muscle of the eye contracts

sphinctor pupillae

the deepest tunic


what is the retina's two layers

pigmented and neural layer

single layer of melanocytes of retina

pigmented layer

sheet of nervous tissue in the retina

neural layer

rods and cones are


contains mostly cones

macula lutae

contains only cones, region of highest visual acuity

fovea centralis

blind spot

optic disc

where the neural layer ends at the posterior margin of the ciliary body

ora serrata

blood is receives in the eye from the


the posterior chamber of eye is filled with

vitreous humor

the anterior chamber of eye is filled with

aqueous humor

chamber between the cornea and iris

anterior chamber

chamber between the iris and lens

posterior chamber

light bending structures are called

refractory media

curvature of the lens is adjustable


the lens in sympathetic activation

flattens (for distant vision)

the lens in parasympathetic activation

bulges (for close vision)

eyeball is too long

nearsighted (myopic eye)

eyeball is too short

farsighted (hyperopic eye)

optic tract sends axons to

lateral geniculate nucleus of the thalamus

fibers of the what reach the primary visual cortex

optic radiation

loss of an eye results in loss of what vision

ipsilateral peripheral

blood vessels grow within the yes of premature infants causes hemorrhaging and blindness


contagious infection of the conjuctiva


forms the boundary between the external and middle ear

tympanic mambrane

links the middle ear and pharynx

pharyngotympanic tube

hammer bone, attaches to the eardrum


anvil bone


stirrup bone, vibrates against the oval window


the snail shell looking thing in the ear


membranous labyrinth is filled with


bony labyrinth is filled with


where are the receptors for hearing

cochlear duct (scala media)

monitor the position of the head


receptor cells of rotational acceleration

ampullary cupula

a mismatch of sensory input causing sickness

motion sickness

equilibrium is greatly disturbed

meniere syndrome

sound vibrations cannot be conducted to the inner ear

conduction deafness

results from damage to any part of the auditory pathway

sensorineural deafness
