1-Na+ channels close
2-Membrane potential decreases
3-cGMP levels drop
4-11-cis retinal is converted to trans retinal
What part of photoreceptors is the transduction site:
Which of the following statements is not true:
The sum of the focal power of optics of relaxed eye is 24D.
True or False: Receptive field at the periphery is much large than in the fovea.
Retinal neurons that generates the sole output of the retina:
Which of the following is true about glaucoma?
Pressure damages ganglion cells at the optic disc
Which of the following is not true about tears:
Bathe the lens to keep it moist
A ray of light entering the eye will pass through these transparent elements in order:
Tears - Cornea - Aqueous humor - Lens - Vitreous humor
The light must be focused to generate a clear image in the retina which is accomplished by :
Lens and cornea
Major component of the vertebrate eye that gathers and focus light and forms an image:
Which is true of Golgi tendon organ?
Gauge muscle force
Distant objects focus in front of the retina:
Receptors in the skin the provides sensitivity to specific stimuli (vibration and steady pressure):
Somatic sensation is usually considered to be a combination of the following:
Sense of touch
Property of C fibers:
Have slowest conduction velocity of any fiber
Sensory receptor potentials are:
Graded in sized depending on stimulus
A ballet dancer spins to the left. During the spin, her eyes snapped quickly to the left. This fast eye movement in relation to head movement is called:
In vestibular transduction, what produces depolarization or hyperpolarization of afferent vestibular nerve?
Bending of stereocilia away or toward kinocilium
In vestibular transduction, the function of the semicircular canal is to detect:
Angular acceleration of the head
True or False: Cnetral unilateral lesions in the CNS can cause deafness.
Which of the following is not true of encoding of sound:
Hair cells located at the base respond best to low frequency sound
Each taste fibers respond best to only one type of stimulus:
Innervation of anterior 2/3 of the tongue, which is responsible for sweet, salty and umami taste is by what nerve?
Branch of the facial nerve
Innervation of posterior third of the tongue, which is responsible for bitter and sour taste is by what nerve?
True or False: Cells of the taste buds undergo constant cycle of growth, death and regeneration. This process is dependent to your sensory nerve.
The umami taste is triggered by a mechanism similar to that of:
