B) neural gap. C) dendritic apposition. D) axon contact. E) synapse. 2) The third and fourth ventricles are joined together via the A) subarachnoid spaces. B) arachnoid granulations. C) massa intermedia. D) choroid plexus. E) cerebral aqueduct. 3) Incoming stimuli that vary in intensity are coded by variations in the ________ of a neuron. A) firing rate B) resting membrane potential C) repolarization rate D) total amplitude of the action potential E) speed of conduction of action potentials 4) The planning and execution of movements is a function performed by association cortex in which cortical lobe? A) Parietal. B) Occipital. C) Frontal. D) Insular. E) Temporal. 5) In reference to the neuraxis, caudal means _________, rostral means __________. A) toward the nose, toward the tail B) toward the tail, toward the nose C) toward the back, toward the belly D) toward the belly, toward the back 6) Movement of the axon membrane potential from -75 mV to -68 mV would be termed a(n) A) action potential. B) hyperpolarization. C) excitatory local potential. D) depolarization. E) threshold potential. 7) The ________ of the neural tube is the origin of the cells that form the central nervous system.
