Ch 16: The Autonomic Nervous System and Higher-Order Functions
This ACh receptor is also a G protein and produces longer-lasting effects than nicotinic receptors do. Responses can be excitatory or inhibitory.
This ACh receptor is located on ganglionic cells and causes excitation of the ganglionic neuron or muscle fiber by opening chemically gated channels.
This sympathetic nervous system receptor causes the release of intracellular calcium ions from the endoplasmic reticulum to stimulate activity in the cell.right answer feedback:
This sympathetic nervous system receptor is found in adipose tissue and causes the breakdown of triglycerides, or lipolysis, for use by other tissues.
This psychological disorder is marked by pronounced disturbances of mood, thought patterns, and behavior that may be linked to excessive dopamine production.right answer feedback:

Caused by disease or trauma, this disorder is a loss of the ability to remember events in the past.right answer feedback:
This disorder is a loss of ACh- and GABA-secreting neurons in which the basal nuclei are affected, along with the frontal lobes. Intellect and ability to control movement decline.
