The V3 branch travels through what foramen or fissure?
Facial Sensory information is sent from the thalamus to the somatosensory cortices via the ____ of the internal capsule
True or False: Group 1a and II play a major role in the distal movements of the limbs and hands.
The ability of a person to identify an object without looking at the object is known as what?
Small nerve afferent fibers travel in the ____ portion of the dorsal horn.
The V2 branch travels through what foramen or fissure?
the ability to identify numbers traced on the body surface is known as what?
Which Brodmann's Area recieves most sensory information projections from the thalamus?
BA ____ projects onto BA 5 and 7 for higher sensory processing.
Which afferent muscle fibers are responsible for detecting muscle length?
Pain and temperature fibers from the face travel in what tract to synapse in the spinal nucleus of V?
Pain, temperature, and fine touch sensations ascend to the VPM of the thalamus via what tract?
True or False: Afferent Fibers Ia and II are responsible for sending infomation about the position of our body in space.
The physical sense of the position and movement of the limbs in relation to each other and the body.
the receptive fields from all the neurons in one dorsal root ganglion are known as a ______.
Mechanoreceptor located in the superficial dermis. It is slow acting and can detect skin pressure/ deformation, sensation of form and texture.
The muscle and nociceptive afferents project to which Brodmann's Area within the cortex?
Mechanoreceptor located in the deep dermis. It is fast acting and can detect vibrations
True or False: Some cells of the dorsal horn and the terminals of noiceptive C fibers contain opiod and dynorphin receptors to inhibit the transmission of pain.
Epipathic sensation (Fine touch, vibrations, proprioception) are carried by which tract?
Mechanoreceptor located in the deep dermis. It is slow acting and can detect skin stretch
True or False:According to the Gate Theory of pain modulation, The activation of large diameter afferent nerve fibers can modulate or decrease the transmission of pain sensation.
Mechanoreceptor located in the superficial dermis. It is fast acting and can detect flutter motion and slippage along skin
QuestionAnswer
True or False: Ectopic impulse generation is the spontaneous generation of action potentials and can occur as a result of high density of sodium voltage gated channels created in r
Which Brodmann's areas project to the pre-motor and motor cortical areas?
True or False: The secondary somatosensory cortex is involved in shape and texture discrimination.
True or False: Noradrenergic neurons descending and act to excite spinothalamic tract neurons and terminals of C-fiber neurons
True or False: Local anesthetics function by binding to the inactivated Na voltage gated channels preventing the influx of Na needed to initiate an action potential.
Noradrenergic neurons originate where?
development of hypersensitivity to the perception of non-noxious stimuli as pain
True or False: Endorphinergic neurons are located in the periaqueductal gray.
