What functions do the frontal areas of the Cerebrum control?
What are the effects when the collateral ganglia is stimulated?
Reduction in blood flow to abdominal organs
Decreased digestive activity
Relaxation of smooth muscles in the wall of the urinary bladder
Release of glucose stores from the liver
What is the anterior medial fissure?
Deep crease along the ventral surface of the spinal cord that divides the cord into right and left halves
What are the 2 nicotinic receptors called?
(neuron) : found in autonomic ganglia; parasymphathetic & sympathetic systems
(muscles): found at the neuromuscular juntion, initiate muscular contraction; somatic nervous system
What is the mesencephalon?
Located b/t the diencephalon and the pons
What is the mesencephalon responsible for?
motor coordination & eye movement
What is the Gray Matte of the spinal cord?
Areas in the CNS dominated by nerve cell bodies; the central portion of the spinal cord
What are the effects when the sympathatic chain ganglia in stimulated?
Stimulation of secretion by sweat glands
Constriction of blood vessels in the skin
^ in blood flow to skeletal muscles
^ force of cardiac contraction
Stimulation of energy production
What is the somatic sensory nerve?
Afferent nerves that transmit sensations such as touch, pressure, pain, temperature & position
What is a neuron?
Fundamental component of nervous system
