  • Why does exposure to toxins have more devastating effects during early pregnancy than in late pregnancy?


Questions include1

Questions include:

  • Describe four basic components of the reflex arc.

  • Explain how nerve impulses are initiated and transmitted and why one-way conduction at synapses always happens.

    Labs and bookwork

  • Why is Babinski’s sign NORMAL in a newborn but indicative of nerve damage in anyone else?

  • Explain the difference between sensorineural deafness and conductive deafness.


Questions include3

Questions include:
