Question 4
4 Match the following cerebral structures with the appropriate functions.

Using the pull-down menus, match each item in the left column to the corresponding item in the right column.
A Enter the cerebral hemispheres from lower brain or cord centers, and those that leave the cortex to travel to lower areas

End of Question 4


Question 5
5 Match the following sensory areas with the appropriate description/function.

Using the pull-down menus, match each item in the left column to the corresponding item in the right column.
A Integrates sensory inputs (temperature, pressure, etc.) relayed to it to produce an understanding of an object being felt
B Involved in the perception of taste stimuli
C Receives information from the general sensory receptors in the skin and from proprioceptors in skeletal muscles
D Responsible for conscious awareness of balance (position of the head in space)
E Permits the perception of the sound stimulus
End of Question 5


Question 6
6 Match the following areas with the appropriate functions.

Using the pull-down menus, match each item in the left column to the corresponding item in the right column.
A Controls visual reflexes that coordinate head and eye movements when we follow a moving object
B Associated with the pineal gland, secretes melatonin to induce sleep
C Contains the pneumotaxic center to maintain the normal rhythm of breathing
D An autonomic reflex center involved in maintaining body homeostasis (cardiovascular center, respiratory centers, centers for sneezing, vomiting, hiccupping, swallowing, coughing)
E Sorts and "edits" information from sensory areas ascending to the cerebral cortex
F The main visceral control center of the body responsible for maintaining homeostasis
End of Question 6
