5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. CNS
  2. Satellite cells
  3. excitability
  4. afferent
  5. if transmission is _______ the NT-receptor reaction will depolarize
  1. a excitatory
  2. b brain & spinal cord; central of integration and control
  3. c surround clusters of neuronal cell bodies in PNS-unknown function
  4. d ability to respond to stimulus
  5. e conducts impulses from receptors to CNS; sensory nerve fibers can be somatic (from skin, muscles, joints) or visceral (from organs within ventral body cavity)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. NT; synaptic cleft
  2. involuntary, conducts impulses from CNS to smooth muscle, cardiac muscle, and glands
  3. monitors changes/events occurring in & outside the body (stimuli); cells that respond=receptors
  4. transmit impulses from CNS to effector
  5. influx of Na+ reverses membrane polarity w/ more positive charges inside cell than outside

5 True/False questions

  1. ependymal cellsline ventricles of brain & central canal of spinal cord; some are ciliated which facilitate movement of cerebrospinal fluid


  2. neuronsdo not conduct nerve impulse; support, nourish, and protect neurons; special type of connective tissue for nervous system


  3. inhibitorymonitors changes/events occurring in & outside the body (stimuli); cells that respond=receptors


  4. saltatory conductionoccurs in unmyelinated axons; wave of depolarization & repolarization travels from one membrane patch to the next--like dominoes falling


  5. PNSnervous system outside the brain & spinal cord; responsible for communication btwn CNS & rest of body
