The Nervous System

HideShow resource information

1. What is the difference between a receptor and a sense organ?

  • Sense organs e.g the eye contain light receptors.
  • Receptors are groups of cells which are sensitive to a stimulus, Sense Organs contain these receptors
  • Sense organs contain myelin sheath and neurones, which send impulses to the CNS. Receptors recieve this impulses
  • Sense organs are groups of cells which are sensitive to a stimulus, Receptors contain these sense organs

2. What is the order of the neurone response?

  • Sensory, Motor, Relay, Effector
  • Sensory, Reflex, Relay, Effector
  • Sensory, Relay, Motor, Effector
  • Effector, Relay, Motor, Sensory

3. Define what neurones do.

  • Neurones control information (as chemical signals) very quickly to and from the CNS
  • Neurones transmit information (as electrical impulses) very quickly to and from the CNS
  • Neurones transmit information (as electrical impulses) very quickly to and from the CNS
  • Neurones transmit information (as electrical impulses) away from the CNS

4. What is MSG? How is it detected?

  • Monosodium Glutamate is a pressure stimuli, which is detected with taste receptors
  • Monosodium Glutamate is a chemical stimuli, which is detected with taste receptors
  • Monosodium Glutamate is a chemical stimuli, which is detected with sound receptors
  • Myelin Sheath Glutamate is a chemical stimuli, which is detected with taste receptors

5. What does the CNS do?

  • The CNS (Central Nervous System) is where all information from the sense organs is sent, and where reflexes and actions are coordinated
  • The CNS (Central Nervous System) is where all information from the sense organs is released, and where reflexes and actions are coordinated
  • The CNS (Central Nervous System) is where all information from the sense organs is sent, and where receptors and sense organs are coordinated
  • The CNS (Central Nervous System) is where all information from the neurons are sent, and where reflexes and actions are coordinated
