Motor Speech Quizzes & Trivia

This quiz covers some anatomy and basic subject matter how the nervous system and speech motor system interact. This quiz is based off a number of class notes and the books Duffy, J. R. (2005). Motor Speech Disorders: Substrates, Differential Diagnosis and Management. St Louis: Mosby. [ISBN: 978-0-323-02452-5] Freed, D. (2000). Motor Speech Disorders Diagnosis and Treatment.

      Around the brain

    • B. 

      Between cerebral hemispheres

    • C. 

      Within cerbral hemispheres

    • D.

    • B. 

      Are within cerebral hemispheres

    • C. 

      Relate to CNS lining of ventricles

  • 6. 
    The motor system is present in all major anatomic levels of the nervous system and is directly responsible for all motor activity involving striated muscle. It includes:
    • A. 

      Efferent connections of the cortex, basal ganglia, cerebellum

    • B. 

      Striated muscle

    • C. 

      Descending pathways to motor nuclei of cranial and spinal nerves

    • D. 

      Efferent fibers within cranial and spinal nerves

    • E. 

      All the above

  • 7. 
    The major PNS structure is the nerve. What is a nerve?
