    Unilateral sleep
  2. This brain formation, extending across multiple brain areas, is responsible for arousal
    Reticular Formation
  3. This characteristic of stage 2 sleep is correlated with nonverbal IQ
    sleep spindles
  4. This brain structure, located in the pons, secretes norepinephrine and tends to be inactive during sleep
    Locus coeruleus
  5. This brain structure stimulates some neurons to release acetylcholine, others to release GABA locally
    Basal Forebrain
  6. This set of muscles straighten appendages
  7. This class of skeletal muscles are oxygenated and do not fatigue (although not rapidly)
    Slow-twitch muscles
  8. Parkinson's disease results from damage to this pathway
    Nigrostriatal pathway
  9. These cells in the cerebellum are excited by parallel fibers
    Purkinje cells
  10. This area of the cortex tracks body position relative to the world
    Posterior parietal
  11. External cues that can reset or change circadian rhythms
  12. Neurotransmitter secreted by the pineal gland, induces sleepiness
  13. This structure is responsible for generating endogenous cycles
    Suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN)
  14. Circadian rhythms not only regulate sleep cycles but this homeostatically regulates body characteristic as well
    Body temperature
  15. This path links special ganglion cells in the eye to the SCN
    Retinohypothalamic path
  16. Individuals lacking this enzyme have difficulties after consuming milk
  17. Levels of this pancreatic hormone rise when getting ready for and after eating a meal
  18. Lesions to this brain region can lead to overeating through many normal sized meals
    Ventromedial hypothalamus
  19. This brain area contains hunger-specific and satiety-specific neurons and receives information from a variety of sources including insulin, ghrelin, CCK, and taste input.
    Arcuate nucleus
  20. Cholecystokinin (CCK), released by the duodenum, has this immediate and relatively local effect.
    Closes the sphincter muscle between the stomach and the duodenum
  21. This hormone induces the kidneys to reabsorb water
  22. This is thirst related to a reduction in blood volume
    Hypovolemic thirst
  23. This hormone triggers hypovolemic thirst
    Angiotensin II
  24. Animals with osmotic thirst seek this type of water
  25. The OVLT and this organ detect osmotic pressure and sodium levels
