Cardiac plexus
Normal control of the diameter of the respiratory passages depends upon
both parasympathetic and sympathetic levels of stimulation
Autonomic tone is an important aspect of ANS function because
allows ANS neurons to increase or decrease their activity, providing range of control options
A decrease in the autonomic tone of the smooth muscle in blood vessels would result
an increase in vessel diameter
Autonomic tone of peripheral blood vessels would be greatest when
sympathetic stimulation is increase
Which of the following is not a visceral reflex?
cremaster reflex
Each of the following visceral reflexes is coordinated by the medulla, except the
pupillary reflex
Which of the following would be an example of higher level control of autonomic function?
increased heart rate when you see a person you dislike
Which of the following controls visceral effectors
Preganglionic fibers leave the CNS and synapse to
ganglionic neurons
Ganglionic neurons innervate such things as
Cardiac Muscle, Glands, Adipose tissue, and smooth muscle
The parasympathetic nervous system dominates which conditions?
The sympathetic division of the ANS is also known as which of the following?

In the sympathetic division, preganglionic fibers are ____ and postganglionic fibers are_____
short; long

Parasympathetic activities include all of the following
1. decrease in the force of contraction
2. constriction of the pupils
3. reduction in heart rate
4. stimulation of defecation
Ganglionic neurons that innervate tissues and organs in the abdominopelvic cavity are located in the
collateral ganglia
The effect of the neurotransmitter on the target cell depends on the nature of the
receptor on the postsynaptic membrane
Autonomic tone in autonomic motor neurons exist because ANS neurons
from both divisions commonly innervate the same organ
Injury to the neurons of a collateral ganglion would affect the function of the
digestive tract

dilate the right pupil
Stimulation of the neurons in the celiac ganglion would lead to
