The areas specializing in language functions are found in the left cerebral hemisphere in: about 90% of the population.
Which part of the brain releases the hormone melatonin? Pineal gland
Nerve fibers of the spinothalamic tract are: sensory.
The sensory cranial nerves include only the: olfactory, optic, and vestibulocochlear.
All cell bodies of the autonomic nervous system are located within the CNS. False
Which of the following cranial nerves is responsible for movements of the tongue? Hypoglossal
The innermost layer of the meninges is the: pia mater.
Beta receptors: bind norepinephrine.
All of the following cranial nerves have a functional classification of motor except: Vestibulocochlear.
Effectors that have single innervation by the autonomic nervous system are innervated only by the parasympathetic division. False
Which of the following might occur from the stimulation of parasympathetic fibers? Increased peristalsis in the digestive tract
“Fight-or-flight” physiological changes include all of the following except: constriction of respiratory airways.
All of the following are characteristics of sympathetic preganglionic neurons except: they have long fibers from CNS to ganglion.
The brainstem does not include the: cerebellum.
The spinal nerves are connected to the spinal cord and consist of _____ pairs. 31
Spinal nerves are _____ fibers. motor and sensory
If you were to damage some of the preganglionic fibers that enter the celiac ganglion, what effect would this have on sympathetic stimulation? Hormones secreted by the adrenal medulla may not reach the various sympathetic effectors, thus delaying the effects of sympathetic stimulation.

Conduction to autonomic effectors requires only one efferent neuron. False

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then tap the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, tap the green Know box. Otherwise, tap the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, tap "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just tap on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
