resting and digesting


Conduction through the autonomic efferent chain is faster than conduction in the somatic motor system.



Which of the following is NOT an autonomic nervous system (ANS) effector?

skeletal muscle


Which of the following is NOT associated with the parasympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)?

Chapter 14 Matching Questions 1-4

Use the figure to match the following.

Drag the appropriate labels to their respective targets. 1 target will be left blank.

See Diagram.


Which component of the ANS is characterized by ganglia located in or near effector organs?

parasympathetic division


Outflow of the sympathetic division occurs from which regions of the CNS?

thoracic and lumbar


Oculomotor nerves are responsible for which of the following functions?

focusing the eyes on close objects


The sympathetic division is also called the "thoracolumbar division" of the autonomic nervous system.



The two types of receptors that bind acetylcholine are __________ and __________ receptors.

nicotinic; muscarinic


Which types of drugs are used to help relieve depression?

Drugs that prolong the activity of norepinephrine on the postsynaptic membrane help to relieve depression.


Which of the following best demonstrates an example of cooperation of the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems?

Parasympathetic stimulation causes vasodilation of blood vessels in the penis, leading to erection; sympathetic stimulation then causes ejaculation.


Which of the following is responsible for the overall integration of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)?



What is the effect of norepinephrine on the heart?

an increase in heart rate


The two divisions of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) normally have a(n) __________ relationship.
