1. Branching fibers extending out from the cell body to receive information from other neurons are called:

  • A) axons.

  • B) glial cells.

  • C) dendrites.

  • D) axon terminals.

  • E) neurotransmitters


2. After neurotransmitters are released into the synapse, many are reabsorbed through a process called:

  • A) reabsorbtion.

  • B) reuptake.

  • C) all-or-none.

  • D) uptake.

  • E) synaptic cleansing


3. The brief electrical impulse transmitted along the axon is called the:

  • A) neural impulse.

  • B) stimulus threshold.

  • C) electrical cascade.

  • D) sodium pump.

  • E) action impulse


4. A space between the axon terminal buttons of the sending neuron and the dendrite of the receiving neuron is called.

  • Synapse or Synaptic Gap


A simple, automatic, inborn response to a sensory stimulus

  • Hint 1 (-200)

    • Fire

  • Hint 2 (-200)

    • 3,2,1, PAIN

  • Hint 1 (-200)

    • Smells like bacon

Knoda says,

“The Daily Double you have!!!”

7. The _______ receives information from all the senses EXCEPT ______.

  • A) hippocampus, hearing.

  • B) amygdala, vision.

  • C) thalamus, smell.

  • D) pons, smell.

  • E) hypothalamus, smell.


8. The ____ is located at the back of the brain and is responsible for muscle coordination, posture and equilibrium. Also called the “little brain”.

  • B) temporal lobe.

  • C) parietal lobe.

  • D) frontal lobe.

11. So you got judo chopped in the back of your neck and then you couldn’t make your facial expressions, you may have damaged your:

  • A) medulla oblongata.

  • B) pons.

  • C) cerebellum.

  • D) hypothalamus.

  • E) sensory cortex


12. After a head injury during a football game, Tom’s physical injuries healed, but he still could not feel his pinkie finger. He might have damaged his:

  • A) parietal lobe.

  • B) occipital lobe.

  • C) frontal lobe.

  • D) temporal lobe.

  • E) visual lobe.


13. After Phineas’ accident, he had difficulty thinking clearly and could not move very well. He likely had damage to his:

  • A) Occipital lobe.

  • B) Frontal lobe.

  • C) Parietal lobe.

  • D) Temporal lobe.

For 200 extra points: what changed dramatically about Phineas after the accident. (one word)

  • B) Frontal lobe.

  • C) Occipital lobe.

  • D) Temporal lobe.


15. In a recent Beef Jerky accident, Sasquatch sustained damage to his ________ due to a prank carried out mean and spiteful campers. This cause to have trouble breathing and his blood pressure and heart rate became erratic:

Medulla Oblongata

  • A) somatic nervous system

  • B) parasympathetic branch

  • C) sympathetic branch

  • D) spinal reflex

  • E) central nervous system


18. James touched a hot stove. His hand immediately recoiled before he knew it was hot. The sequence of this reflex is:

22.

  • Detects brain waves through their electrical output.

  • Used mainly in sleep research.

Electroencephalogram or EEG


23.

3D X-Ray of the brain.

  • Good for tumor locating, but tells us nothing about function.

Computed Tomography

or CT scan


24.

  • More detailed picture of brain using magnetic field to knock electrons off axis.

Imaging

Shows ventricular enlargement in a schizophrenic patient


Positron Emission Tomography or PET
