medical term for earwax
which compartment of the ear contains endolymph?
type of innervation (sympathetic or parasympathetic) of dilator pupillae muscle
contains the nuclei or cell bodies of horizontal, amacrine, bipolar, and Muller's cells
embryonic origin of the malleus
layer of the retina contains the photoreceptor cells
embryonic origin of the vitreous body of the eye
this layer of squamous epithelial cells provides for metabolic exchange between the cornea and the aqueous humor
hearing loss resulting from sound waves being mechanically impeded from reaching the sensory receptors in the internal ear
nutrient layer of the eye containing blood vessels
this layer includes the choroid, stroma ciliary body, and the iris
an outer layer of retina that is composed of simple cuboidal melanin containingcell
contraction of this muscle tenses the tympanic membrane. Inserts onto the malleus.
embryonic origin of the optic nerve
type of innervation (sympathetic or parasympathetic) of constrictor/ sphincter pupillae muscle
the apical boundary of Muller's cells
rods and cones are _______ cells.
contains the nuclei or cell bodies of the retinal rods and cones

central circular aperture of the iris
pigment associated with rods
watery liquid located in the anterior and posterior chambers of the eye
a contractile diaphragm that extends over the anterior surface of the lens. Has melanin pigments:

pigment associated with cones
this fluid of the inner ear is high in Na concentration and low in K concentration
this depression in the retina only contains cones
these cells convert mechanical energy into electrical signal
this gel like substance acts as the shock absorber of the eye and maintains the shape of the eye
the transparent front part of the eye that covers the iris, pupil, and anterior chamber.
oval appendage of the ear that extends from the lateral portion of the head and collects sound waves
the macula of saccule detects movements in the _____ plane.
this muscle dampens the movement of the stapes.
site where the optic nerve joins the eye
this membrane lies beneath the corneal epithelium and the corneal stroma
upper wall of scala media
basement membrane of the corneal endothelial cells
conversion of sound waves to mechanical vibrations is the main function of which part of the ear?
increasing or decreasing the size of the pupil is known as
Effect of age on lens’s elasticity and ability to accommodate
the utricle and the saccule are located in what portion of the ear?
the malleus, incus, and stapes are known as
contains the nuclei or cell bodies of the ganglion cells
contains processes of ganglion cells that lead from the retina to the brain
embryonic origin of the external auditory meatus
how many sensory regions of the inner ear?
embryonic origin of the stapes
lower wall of scala media
inflammation of eardrum
responsible for the production and maintenance of endolymph
this layer includes the sclera and cornea
this layer includes the outer retinal epithelium, inner neural retina, and epithelium of the ciliary body and iris.
this fluid of the inner ear is high in K concentration and low in Na concentration

embryonic origin of the sclera
separation of retinal pigmental epithelium and the neural retina is known as _____ _____.
hearing loss resulting from damage to hair cells or cochlear division of CN VIII
contains processes of retinal rods and cones and processes of horizontal, amacrine, bipolar, and Muller's cells
a destructive and expanding growth consisting of keratinizing squamous epithelium in the middle ear and/or mastoid process.
space between the posterior lens and neural retina
