2. which statement about homeostasis is true?

  • the integration centre is the effector
  • effectors detect changes in physiological variables
  • delivery of a baby is the end results of a positive feeback mechanism
  • plasma glucose conc is controlled via positive feedback
  • most physiological variables are regulated by positive feedback

3. which of the following is an important functional parameter of pain receptors?

  • signal only flexion reflex at joint capsules
  • exhibit little or no adaption
  • give rise to signals that convey the location of a joint
  • are not affected by muscle tension
  • can be inhibited voluntarily

4. regarding the sympathetic division of the ANS:

  • Ach is secreted by parasympathetic postganglionic fibres
  • the sympathetic chain extends from the thoracic to the sacral regions of the spinal cord
  • most sympathetic preganglionic fibres secrete noradrenaline
  • sympathetic postganglionic neurones are found in spinal segments from T1 to L2

5. regarding the basal ganglia in motor control:

  • the basal ganglia lie just outside the spinal cord
  • parkinsons is caused by neuronal degeneration within the basal ganglia
  • the basal ganglia are not involved in voluntary movement
  • parkingsons is caused by neuronal degeneration within the motor cortex
  • disorders of the basal ganglia produce a marked loss of sensation
