Anatomy Exam 3

The vitreous body helps stabilize the eye and give physical support to the retina
The lens focuses light on the photoreceptor cells by changing shape
There are three different types of cones, each one sensitive to a different color wavelength of light. These cones are designated red, blue, and green
An area of the retina that contains only cones and is the site of sharpest vision is the fovea
A blind spot in the retina occurs where the optic nerve attaches to the retina
Sound waves are converted into mechanical movements by the tympanic membrane
A structure that allows the middle ear to communicate with the nasopharynx is the auditory tube
The basic receptors in the inner ear are the hair cells
The structure that overlies the organ of Corti is the tectorial membrane
The structure that separates the cochlear duct from the tympanic duct is the basilar membrane
What we perceive as the pitch of a sound is our sensory response to its frequency
The frequency of a sound is indicated to the nervous system by the region of the organ of Corti that is stimulated
When viewing an object close to you, your lens should be more rounded
Damage to the fovea of the eye would interfere with the ability to see color
The sense of hearing is provided by receptors of the inner ear
Night blindness can be treated by administering vitamin A
The central opening in the eye through which light passes is the pupil
The ciliary muscle helps to control the shape of the lens
The pigmented portion of the eye is the iris
