  41. Regulation of the nervous system provides...
    swift but brief responses to stimuli.
  42. All the motor neurons that control skeletal muscles are...
    multipolar neurons.
  43. Depolarization of a neuron cell membrane will shift the membrane potential torward...
    0 mV.
  44. The structural & functional link between the cerebral hemispheres & the components of the brain stem is the...
  45. The ventricles of the brain are filled with...
    cerebrospinal fluid.
  46. Reading, writing, & speaking are dependent on processing in the...
    left cerebral hemisphere.
  47. Establishment of emotional states & related behavioral drives are functions of the...
    limbic system.
  48. The final relay point for ascending sensory information that will be projected to the primary sensory cortex is the...
  49. Spinal nerves are called mixed nerves because they...
    contain sensory & motor fibers.
  50. There is always a synapse between the CNS & the peripheral effector in...
    the ANS.
  51. Approximately 75% of parasympathetic outflow is provided by the...
    vagus nerve.
  52. State the all-or-none principle of action potentials.
    The properties of the action potential are independent of the relative strength of the depolarization stimulus.
  53. Using the mnemonic device "Oh, Once One Takes The Anatomy Final, Very Good Vacations Are Heavenly", list the 12 pairs of cranial nerves & their functions.
    • 1) olfactory (smell)
    • 2) optic (visual)
    • 3) oculomotor (control 4 of 6 muscles of eye)
    • 4) trochlear (innervate the superior oblique eye muscles)
    • 5) trigeminal (mixed - ophthalmic, maxillary, & mandibular)
    • 6) abducens (sixth extrinsic eye muscle - lateral rectus)
    • 7) facial (scalp & face - presure & taste)
    • 8) vestibulocochlear (balance, position, & movement; & cochlear nerves monitor hearing)
    • 9) glossopharyngeal (mixed - innervate the tongue & pharynx & control swallowing)
    • 10) vagus (mixed - autonomic control of visceral func. & have variety of motor)
    • 11) accessory (internal branch wh/ inervates vol swallowing muscles of soft palate & external branch controls muscles assoc w/ the pectoral girdle)
    • 12) hypoclossal (voluntary control over tongue movements)
  54. How does the emergence of sympathetic fibers from the spinal cord differ from the emergence of parasympathetic fiber?
    The sympathetic preganglionic fibers emerge from the thoracolumbar area (T1 - L2) of the spinal cord. The parasympathetic firbers emerge from the brain stem & sacral region of the spinal cord (craniosacral).
  55. A graded potential...
    • a) decreases w/ distance from the point of stimulation
    • b) spreads passively because of local currents
    • c) may involve either depolarization or hyperpolarization
  56. The loss of positive ions from the interior of a neuron produces...
  57. What would happen if the ventral root of a spinal verve was damaged or transected?
    Since the ventral roots contain axons of motor neurons, those muscles controlled by the neurons of the damaged root would be paralyzed.
  58. Which major part of the brain is associated with respiratory & cardiac activity?
    medulla oblongata
  59. Why is response time in a monosynaptic reflex much faster thabn response time in a polysynaptic reflex?
    A monosynaptic reflex only has 1 synapes vs more than 1 in the polysynaptic reflex.
  60. Compare the general effects of sympathetic & parasympathetic divisions of the ANS.
    • 1) mental alertness S+ P-
    • 2) metabolic rate S+ P-
