embryonic origin of the vitreous body of the eye
how many sensory regions of the inner ear?
the space between the posterior surface of the iris and the anterior lens
type of innervation (sympathetic or parasympathetic) of constrictor/ sphincter pupillae muscle
contains the nuclei or cell bodies of the ganglion cells
the apical boundary of Muller's cells

hearing loss resulting from sound waves being mechanically impeded from reaching the sensory receptors in the internal ear
ganglia of the cochlear division of CN VIII are located where?
composed of the basal lamina of Muller's cells
watery liquid located in the anterior and posterior chambers of the eye
this layer includes the outer retinal epithelium, inner neural retina, and epithelium of the ciliary body and iris.
site where the optic nerve joins the eye
embryonic origin of the stapes
the malleus, incus, and stapes are known as
this gel like substance acts as the shock absorber of the eye and maintains the shape of the eye
separation of retinal pigmental epithelium and the neural retina is known as _____ _____.
this layer includes the sclera and cornea
an outer layer of retina that is composed of simple cuboidal melanin containingcell

space between the cornea and the iris
which compartment of the ear contains endolymph?
embryonic origin of the malleus
this fluid of the inner ear is high in Na concentration and low in K concentration
this layer of squamous epithelial cells provides for metabolic exchange between the cornea and the aqueous humor

embryonic origin of the lens of the eye
pigment associated with cones
absorption of fluid in the eye occurs within the ___ __ ____.
this muscle dampens the movement of the stapes.
basement membrane of the corneal endothelial cells
contains the processes of horizontal, amacrine, bipolar, and Muller's cells that connect to each other

contains the nuclei or cell bodies of the retinal rods and cones
contraction of the ciliary muscle causes a change in the shape of what structure?
inflammation of eardrum
a contractile diaphragm that extends over the anterior surface of the lens. Has melanin pigments:
hearing loss resulting from damage to hair cells or cochlear division of CN VIII
inner layer of retina that contains light sensitive receptors and complex neuronal networks
