1. What is cortical magnification?

  • The representation on the cortex is not directly proportionate. Areas used more are given more cortical surface e.g hand more than knee

2. Which of these options measure neural as opposed to electrical and magnetic brain activity?

  • fMRI
  • EEG, MEG
  • EEG, MEG, fMRI
  • EEG

3. 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

4. Where are somatosensory areas mainly found?

  • Superior
  • Anterior
  • Lateral
  • Medial

5. What happens after transduction?

  • Receptor signals are combined to capture different properties of the physical stimulus. They transform from graded to action potentials
  • Receptor signals are combined to capture different properties of the physical stimulus. They transform from action to graded potentials
  • Receptor signals are transmitted to the cortex through the different relative pathways
