    • medulla
  40. Receptors such as pain and emotion are locared where?
  41. Inspiration:
    Nerve impulses travel on _____ nerve to muscles of diaphragm, contracting them. As the moves downward the thoracic cavity expands. The intra-alveolar pressure _____. Atmospheric pressure, which is _____ on the outside, forces air into the respitory tract through the air passage way. Air fills up lungs.
    • Phrenic
    • decreases
    • higher
  42. Expiration:
