Other questions in this quiz

2. Which of these is a modular pattern?

  • Occipital lobe
  • Thalamus
  • Blob
  • Cortex

3. Where do signals in the sensory organ project to?

  • In most senses, the peripheral neurons project to cortical structures, frequently found in the thalamus. Projection targets are concentrations of cell bodies, cortical neurons.
  • In most senses, the peripheral neurons project to cortical structures, frequently found in the thalamus. Projection targets are concentrations of cell bodies, nuclei.
  • In most senses, the peripheral neurons project to subcortical structures, frequently found in the thalamus. Projection targets are concentrations of cell bodies, nuclei.
  • In most senses, the peripheral neurons project to subcortical structures, frequently found in the hypothalamus. Projection targets are concentrations of cell bodies, nuclei.

4. What is meant by transduction?

  • How neural activity is represented in the brain
  • Converting a physical property into neural code
  • How neural activity is transmitted in the brain

5. How are receptors distributed?

  • Non-uniformly. For example, there is a high density cones approx 5 degrees from fovea (good vision), but inside there are 0 (blind spot)
  • Non-uniformly. For example, there is a high density cones approx 10 degrees from fovea (blind spot), but inside there are 0 (good vision)
  • Uniformly. For example, there is an equal distribution of rods and cones on the neural retina
