Chapter 14 Matching Questions 1-4

Use the figure to match the following.

Drag the appropriate labels to their respective targets. 1 target will be left blank.

See Diagram.

10

Which component of the ANS is characterized by ganglia located in or near effector organs?

parasympathetic division

11

Outflow of the sympathetic division occurs from which regions of the CNS?

thoracic and lumbar

12

Oculomotor nerves are responsible for which of the following functions?

focusing the eyes on close objects

13

The sympathetic division is also called the "thoracolumbar division" of the autonomic nervous system.

True

14

The two types of receptors that bind acetylcholine are __________ and __________ receptors.

nicotinic; muscarinic

15

Which types of drugs are used to help relieve depression?

Drugs that prolong the activity of norepinephrine on the postsynaptic membrane help to relieve depression.

16

Which of the following best demonstrates an example of cooperation of the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems?

Parasympathetic stimulation causes vasodilation of blood vessels in the penis, leading to erection; sympathetic stimulation then causes ejaculation.

17

Which of the following is responsible for the overall integration of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)?

hypothalamus

18

What is the effect of norepinephrine on the heart?

an increase in heart rate

19

The two divisions of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) normally have a(n) __________ relationship.

antagonistic

20

Which target organ is NOT affected by the parasympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)?

adrenal medulla
