The neural tube and neural crest cells are of endodermal origin.
The forebrain develops into the telencephalon and the diencephalon.
A patient is diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, which causes a loss of myelination of the
axons in the brain. This would interfere with transmission of information between nuclei.
The cerebral cortex is composed of superficial white matter with underlying gray matter.
Gray matter is found only in the cerebral cortex.
The midbrain forms from the ________.
If the neural tube failed to develop properly, CSF production and circulation could be
Communication between the cerebrum and cerebellum is facilitated by the corpus callosum.
Damage to the parietal lobe of the cerebrum would impair the ability to distinguish between
different types of sensations.
Impairment of voluntary movements is absolutely indicative of damage to the basal nuclei.
A person with damage to the left cerebral hemisphere could have several speaking problems,
but yet have no problems with singing.
Destruction of the general interpretive area, or Wernicke's area, would be apparent if
someone could understand what they are hearing, but cannot form coherent words in reply.
The connections between the cerebral cortex and the limbic system should allow individuals
to consciously moderate their fear responses.
Neurogenesis in the hippocampus may be involved in learning and memory.
Damaging the diencephalon would inhibit detection of sensory stimuli.
Destruction of the superior colliculi would impact an individual's hearing.
The pons and cerebellum comprise the metencephalon.
The midbrain, thalamus, and pons are all considered part of the brainstem.
The spinal cord begins at the foramen magnum and extends to the base of the fifth lumbar
The spinocerebellar tract would carry information from sensory receptors to the cerebral
The reticulospinal tracts are the major descending pathways of the pyramidal system.
Descending tracts carry motor impulses from the cerebral cortex to the spinal cord.
A positive Babinski sign in adults indicates damage to the pyramidal motor tracts.
The extrapyramidal tracts begin at the motor cortex of the frontal lobe and synapse in the
medulla before descending the spinal cord.
Damage to cranial nerve IX would impair swallowing.
The inability to chew would be associated with damage to the ophthalmic division of the
The facial nerve is the major sensory nerve from the face.
Cell bodies of motor neurons are found within the dorsal root ganglia.
All cranial and spinal nerves are mixed.
A reflex arc requires intervention from the cerebral cortex for a motor response to occur.
