16 Multiple choice questions

  1. The branches of the neuron body which receive electrical signals from the terminal arbors of other neurons.
  2. The printout or graph of brain wave patterns from an instrument that amplifies electrical fluctuations of the brain.
  3. The sensory translation of physical vibrations which occur in nature.
  4. The major portion of the 8th cranial nerve. It transmits encoded auditory signals to the central nervous system and eventually to both the right and the left temporal lobes of the brain.
  5. Controls skeletal muscles, coordination of voluntary muscles, receives and sends impulses but is not a reflex center. Composed of neurons with large and long axons.
  6. Configuration of tones based upon the natural harmonic series that have been adjusted upward or downward to form a particular musical system.
  7. Identification of the origin of a sound in space.
  8. The largest part of the brain. Largely composed of grey matter. It is a sensory interpreter, controls all voluntary muscles and is the center of all mental functions associated with reasoning, intelligence, judgments and emotions. 4 areas: Frontal lobe, Parietal lobe, temporal lobe, and occipital lobe.
  9. A combination of sounds which seem at repose with each other without conflict. The absence of roughness.
  10. A complete nerve cell consisting of a nerve body, dendrites, an axon and terminal arbors.
  11. Techniques predicated upon information received from some internal body function upon which conscious will is exerted in order to make modifications on the internal process.
  12. A combination of sounds which are perceived to be at conflict with each other. Rough or harsh intervals.
  13. A collective term for all the brain parts except the cerebellum and cerebrum. Includes the medulla, midbrain, thalamus, hypothalamus, and pituitary glands.
  14. The long part of the neuron which transfers impulses from the nerve body to the tips of the arbors.
  15. The portion of the neuron which contains the cell nucleus and cytoplasm and from which protrude the dendrites.
  16. The space between dendrites of one neuron and the terminal arbors of the axon of another neuron. While these neural "branches" don't touch, electrical signals pass across these gaps.
