What are smooth muscle contractions

Smooth Muscle contractions are regulated by calcium ions. The smooth muscle differs from skeletal muscle in that its contracts from all sides.

What causes muscle stiffness and soreness
  1. A disease associated with widespread muscle aches, tenderness, and stiffness and with no known cause is FIBROMYALGIA
What is the name of the thick band of neurons that connects the right and left cerebral hemispheres

The band is called Corpus Collasum.

The brain and spinal cord make up the

CNS - central nervous system

A contraction in which there is no change in muscle length but there is a great increase in muscle tension is

isometric contractions

Which cranial nerve controls tongue movement

Hypoglossal nerve

What is the difference between cell membrane and plasma membrane

There is no difference between plasma and cell membrane.

What cranial nerves are involved in smelling

The Olfactory Nerve (Cranial Nerve I) controls the sense of smell.

Which receptors will detect the stimulus

I know the answer it is the method of the hydrocoleptic glands that detect the stimulus :)

Similarities of motor and sensory neurons

Sensory neurones carry impulses to the CNS, motor neurones carry impulses to muscles.

Which system innervates skeletal muscles

somatic

Correct order of decreasing magma viscosity

Rhyolite, Andesitic, Basalt

What cranial nerves are completely sensory

Actually, there are three cranial nerves that are completely sensory: Olfactory nerve, Optic nerve and the Vestibulocohlear nerve. The Optic nerve is responsible for sensory information for vision, the Olfactory nerve is responsible for sensory information coming from the nose and the Vestibulocohlear (the craziest word to spell) involves sensory information for hearing (get it?- cohlear, ear) and equilibrium.

What is the innermost meningeal layer of the brain called

The pia mater is the delicate innermost layer of the meninges-the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. It is delicate and vascular, and follows every contour of the brain.

Conduction of an action potential in a myelinated axon is called what

It is called saltatory conduction. This describes the "jumping" of an action potential from node to node on a myelinated axon.

How does herpes zoster differ from varicella zoster virus

The zoster virus is what causes herpes zoster or shingles.

Which lobe of the cerebrum controls eyesight

Vision reception is processed in the occipital lobe (at the back of the brain), with visuospatial processing occurring in the parietal lobe.

What are the cells involved in most nervous system tumors

the cells involved in most nervous system tumors are called

What is the system that promotes the flight or fight system

sympathetic nervous system

What is an abnormal accumulation of CSF in the ventricles of the brain

Hydrocephalus

What ion is rapidly moving into the cell during the depolarization period of an action potential

Sodium.

A positive ion (cation) that enters the cell (influx) rapidly when the membrane threshold is reached and the voltage gated sodium channels open.

This occurs during the rising phase of an action potential, i.e. membrane depolarization beyond the threshold for activation.

What is the structural model of the plasma membrane called-

structural model of plasma membrane is called the selectively permeable membrane

Structural model of the plasma membrane is called

Fluid Mosaic Model.

What carries sensory information to the spinal cord

Afferent nerves of the peripheral nervous system carry sensory information to the spinal cord.

Where is the growth plate of a long bone located

At the ends, adjacent to the articulating surfaces.
