this layer includes the choroid, stroma ciliary body, and the iris
inflammation external auditory meatus
embryonic origin of the vitreous body of the eye
medical term for earwax
oval appendage of the ear that extends from the lateral portion of the head and collects sound waves
contains the nuclei or cell bodies of the retinal rods and cones
inner layer of retina that contains light sensitive receptors and complex neuronal networks
the transparent front part of the eye that covers the iris, pupil, and anterior chamber.
this membrane lies beneath the corneal epithelium and the corneal stroma

the stapedius and the tensor tympani are rsponsible for the ______ reflex.
embryonic origin of the optic nerve
embryonic origin of the lens of the eye
embryonic origin of the malleus
separation of retinal pigmental epithelium and the neural retina is known as _____ _____.
type of innervation (sympathetic or parasympathetic) of dilator pupillae muscle
composed of the basal lamina of Muller's cells

ganglia of the cochlear division of CN VIII are located where?
contains the processes of horizontal, amacrine, bipolar, and Muller's cells that connect to each other
lower wall of scala media
this structure is composed of dense fibrous connective tissue that provides attachment sites for the extrinsic eye muscles
the eye is composed of _ layers.
Effect of age on lens’s elasticity and ability to accommodate
type of innervation (sympathetic or parasympathetic) of constrictor/ sphincter pupillae muscle
nutrient layer of the eye containing blood vessels
embryonic origin of the external auditory meatus
this fluid of the inner ear is high in K concentration and low in Na concentration
inflammation of eardrum
the apical boundary of Muller's cells
the auditory ossicles connect the tympanic membrane to what structure?
embryonic origin of the sclera
pigment associated with rods
the macula of saccule detects movements in the _____ plane.
hearing loss resulting from sound waves being mechanically impeded from reaching the sensory receptors in the internal ear
space between the posterior lens and neural retina
the embryonic origin of the eustachian tube
site where the optic nerve joins the eye
this epithelium functions to secrete aqueous humor, it is a part of the blood aqueous barrier, and it is involved in secretion & anchoring of the zonular fibers
true or false: the corneal epithelium is regenrative.
basement membrane of the corneal endothelial cells
an outer layer of retina that is composed of simple cuboidal melanin containingcell
increasing or decreasing the size of the pupil is known as
this muscle dampens the movement of the stapes.
central circular aperture of the iris
watery liquid located in the anterior and posterior chambers of the eye
space between the cornea and the iris
which auditory ossicle is attached to the eardrum
responsible for the production and maintenance of endolymph
this fluid of the inner ear is high in Na concentration and low in K concentration
how many sensory regions of the inner ear?
contains the nuclei or cell bodies of horizontal, amacrine, bipolar, and Muller's cells
upper wall of scala media
absorption of fluid in the eye occurs within the ___ __ ____.
a destructive and expanding growth consisting of keratinizing squamous epithelium in the middle ear and/or mastoid process.
which compartment of the ear contains endolymph?
the malleus, incus, and stapes are known as
conversion of sound waves to mechanical vibrations is the main function of which part of the ear?
contains processes of retinal rods and cones and processes of horizontal, amacrine, bipolar, and Muller's cells
