Sample text

E. Ganglion cells are the output cells of the retina. ■■ Axons of ganglion cells form the optic nerve. 3. 4) ■■ Axons of the ganglion cells form the optic nerve and optic tract, ending in the lateral geniculate body of the thalamus. ■■ The fibers from each nasal hemiretina cross at the optic chiasm, whereas the fibers from each temporal hemiretina remain ipsilateral. Therefore, fibers from the left nasal hemiretina and fibers from the right temporal hemiretina form the right optic tract and synapse on the right lateral geniculate body.

B. Sympathetic ganglia are located in the paravertebral chain. 2. Preganglionic neurons have their cell bodies in the CNS and synapse in autonomic ganglia. neurons of the sympathetic nervous system originate in spinal cord segments T1–L3 or the thoracolumbar region. ■■ Preganglionic neurons of the parasympathetic nervous system originate in the nuclei of cranial nerves and in spinal cord segments S2–S4 or the craniosacral region. ■■ Preganglionic 3. , heart, blood vessels, sweat glands). 4. Adrenal medulla is a specialized ganglion of the sympathetic nervous system.

Only two types of transport occur “downhill”—simple and facilitated diffusion. If there is no stereospecificity for the d- or l-isomer, one can conclude that the transport is not carrier mediated and, therefore, must be simple diffusion. 19. The answer is B [II A 4 a–c]. Increasing oil/water partition coefficient increases solubility in a lipid bilayer and therefore increases permeability. Increasing molecular radius and increased membrane thickness decrease permeability. The concentration difference of the solute has no effect on permeability.
