    ganglionic neurons
  3. Preganglionic neurons of the autonomic nervous system are located in
    both the brain and the lateral gray horns of the spinal cord

    short; myelinated
  7. Clusters of ganglionic sympathetic neurons that innervate organs in the abdominopelvic region are called ________ ganglia.
  8. Stimulation of the neurons in the celiac ganglion would lead to
    hydrolysis of liver glycogen reserves
  9. Sympathetic nerves
    are bundles of postganglionic fibers that innervate organs within the thoracic cavity

    left pupil and the heart
  12. Stimulation of α1 adrenergic receptors by norepinephrine results in
    release of calcium ions from intracellular stores
  13. A certain drug decreases heart rate by blocking a receptor on cardiac pacemaker cells. This drug probably binds to ________ receptors.
    beta-1 adrenergic

  16. The statement "its postganglionic axons always use acetylcholine as the neurotransmitter" is
    true only for the parasympathetic nervous system
  17. Nicotinic receptors
    open chemically-gated sodium ion channels
  18. The statement "Preganglionic axon terminals release acetylcholine" is
    true for both the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems
  19. Drugs that block nicotinic receptors would be
    autonomic blocking agents
  20. The statement "it controls the diameter of the pupil" is
    true for both the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems
