5 Matching questions

  1. The ventral regions (NA) require input from the
  2. The cortex has significant control over
  3. Receptor fields send sensory information via their respective fasciculi to
  4. If stimulus threshold is reached in NTS then
  5. The "swallowing cortex" is important in
  1. a the initiation of swallowing and the level of neuromuscular activity of volitional swallowing
  2. b cell bodies comprising the Nucleus Tractus Solitarius
  3. c dorsal regions (NTS) in the medulla to complete the swallow
  4. d sends information to the Nucleus Ambiguus to execute the specified motor sequence
  5. e time-ordered organization of movements, especially the sequential performance of multiple and voluntary movements

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the sensory awareness of food
  2. interactions between motor and sensory nuclei
  3. it confroms to a highly codified stimulus pattern that produces a behavioral sequence of more elementary motor acts
  4. the less agility and control required, more forgiving when timin of swallow and coordination of transit are impaired
  5. believed to coordinate the sequence of tongue and facial movements

5 True/False questions

  1. Changes in bolus volume createthe greatest systematic changes in the oropharyngeal swallow


  2. CPG input functionsreceptor fields on the posterior tongue (CN IX), fauces, tonsils, velum (CN IX), mucosa of the valleculae and pyriform recesses (CN X) and the salivary glands (CN VII) are stimulated by the presence of the bolus


  3. Information about the motor movement comes from themuscles spindles in the tongue via CN XII


  4. The "swallowing cortex" is a discrete area located inthe supplemental motor area, anterior to M1


  5. All efferent information is sent via the NA to theventral medulla
