16 True/False questions

  1. SynapseThe 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.

          

  2. DissonanceA combination of sounds which are perceived to be at conflict with each other. Rough or harsh intervals.

          

  3. TemperamentConfiguration of tones based upon the natural harmonic series that have been adjusted upward or downward to form a particular musical system.

          

  4. CerebellumControls skeletal muscles, coordination of voluntary muscles, receives and sends impulses but is not a reflex center. Composed of neurons with large and long axons.

          

  5. CerebrumControls 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. BiofeedbackTechniques predicated upon information received from some internal body function upon which conscious will is exerted in order to make modifications on the internal process.

          

  7. DendriteA complete nerve cell consisting of a nerve body, dendrites, an axon and terminal arbors.

          

  8. Auditory NerveThe 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.

          

  9. Sound LocalizationIdentification of the origin of a sound in space.

          

  10. Aural PerceptionThe sensory translation of physical vibrations which occur in nature.

          

  11. Cell bodyThe portion of the neuron which contains the cell nucleus and cytoplasm and from which protrude the dendrites.

          

  12. AxonThe printout or graph of brain wave patterns from an instrument that amplifies electrical fluctuations of the brain.

          

  13. NeuronThe long part of the neuron which transfers impulses from the nerve body to the tips of the arbors.

          

  14. EEGThe long part of the neuron which transfers impulses from the nerve body to the tips of the arbors.

          

  15. ConsonanceA combination of sounds which seem at repose with each other without conflict. The absence of roughness.

          

  16. Brain StemThe 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.
