Return to

Game Board

physiology 300

Click to reveal the question

Physiology300
  • These neurons relay information from receptors in the periphery into the CNS.

  • They are pseudo-monopolar cells.

What are first-order neurons?

Return to

Game Board

physiology 400

Click to reveal the question

Physiology400
  • This is the process by which sensory receptors transform changes in the adequate stimulus into changes in neuronal discharge (electrochemical energy).

What is information transduction?

What are discriminative tactile sense, conscious proprioception, vibration, and stereognosis?

Return to

Game Board

dcml 200

Click to reveal the question

DCML200
  • This is the spinal pathway by which discriminative tactile information from the upper extremity is conveyed.
  • It is located laterally in the dorsal column, from T6 and above.

What is the fasciculus cuneatus?

Return to

Game Board

dcml 300

Click to reveal the question

DCML300
  • This is the thalamic relay center for the DCML.
  • It contains the cell bodies of third-order neurons.

What is the ventral posterior lateral (VPL) nucleus?

Return to

Game Board

dcml 400

Click to reveal the question

DCML400
  • Third-order neurons projecting from the thalamus to the primary sensory cortex pass through this area.
  • This white matter area separates the thalamus from the caudate nucleus.

What is the internal capsule?

Return to

Game Board

dcml 500

Click to reveal the question

DCML500
  • This construct depicts the somatotopic organization of the primary sensory cortex.
  • It portrays a distorted representation of the body where body parts are portrayed proportional to the amount of brain space dedicated to the control of that body part.

What is the sensory homunculus?

Return to

Game Board

spinothalamic system 100

Click to reveal the question

Spinothalamic System100
  • The modalities to which the spinothalamic system is most sensitive.

What are pain and temperature from the contralateral body?

Return to

Game Board

spinothalamic system 200

Click to reveal the question

Spinothalamic System 200
  • The component of the spinothalamic system that conveys information about slow (clinical) pain.

What is the paleospinothalamic tract?

Return to

Game Board

spinothalamic system 300

Click to reveal the question

Spinothalamic System 300
  • At or about the level of entry.

What is the level of the neuraxis at which this system crosses the midline (decussates)?

Return to

Game Board

spinothalamic system 400

Click to reveal the question

Spinothalamic System 400
  • The thalamic relay center by which information about pain and temperature makes its way into the limbic system.

What is the intralaminar nucleus?

Return to

Game Board

spinothalamic system 500

Click to reveal the question

Spinothalamic System 500
  • The type of organization found throughout this system.
  • Helps account for why patients may have difficulty localizing the source of their pain.

What is not somatotopically organized?

Return to

Game Board

trigeminal system 100

Click to reveal the question

Trigeminal System100
  • The modalities to which the trigeminal system is most sensitive.

What are pain and temperature from the contralateral face?

Return to

Return to

Game Board

trigeminal system 400
