Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The medial direction is towards the sagittal plane. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the sagittal plane divides the body into left and right halves. The medial direction refers to movement or position towards the midline of the body, which is in line with the sagittal plane. Therefore, moving towards the sagittal plane is equivalent to moving in a medial direction.

  • 7. 

    Midsaggital separates the body equally into two halves. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The midsagittal plane is a vertical plane that divides the body into equal left and right halves. It passes through the midline of the body, specifically through the midline of the skull, spine, and pelvis. This plane is important in anatomical and medical studies as it helps in understanding the symmetry and organization of the body. Therefore, the statement that the midsagittal plane separates the body equally into two halves is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Oblique planes divide the body into 

    • A.

      Left and right

    • B.

      Inferior and superior

    • C.

      Diagonalls

    • D.

      Up or down

    Correct Answer
    C. Diagonalls
    Explanation
    Oblique planes divide the body into diagonals. This means that the planes cut through the body at an angle, creating diagonal sections. This is different from planes that divide the body into left and right (sagittal planes), inferior and superior (transverse planes), or up and down (coronal planes).

    The two major cavities in the body are ________ and ________ .

    Correct Answer
    Dorsal,Ventral
    Ventral,Dorsal
    Explanation
    The two major cavities in the body are the dorsal cavity and the ventral cavity. The dorsal cavity is located along the posterior side of the body and contains the cranial cavity, which houses the brain, and the spinal cavity, which surrounds the spinal cord. On the other hand, the ventral cavity is located along the anterior side of the body and is divided into two main parts: the thoracic cavity, which contains the heart and lungs, and the abdominal cavity, which houses the digestive organs.

    Rate this question:

  • 11.

    • A.

      Ventral Cavity

    • B.

      Abdominopelvic Cavity

    • C.

      Dorsal Cavity

    • D.

      Thoracic Cavity

    Correct Answer
    C. Dorsal Cavity
    Explanation
    The cranial and spinal cavities are located in the dorsal cavity. The dorsal cavity is located along the posterior side of the body and is divided into two main parts: the cranial cavity, which houses the brain, and the spinal cavity, which contains the spinal cord. This cavity provides protection to these vital organs and is surrounded by the bones of the skull and vertebrae.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The ventral cavity includes the ________ cavity as well as the ________ cavity.  

    Correct Answer
    Abdomiopelvic, thoracic
    Thoracic, abdominopelvic
    Explanation
    The ventral cavity includes the abdomiopelvic cavity as well as the thoracic cavity. This means that the ventral cavity is divided into two sections: the abdomiopelvic cavity, which contains the abdominal and pelvic organs, and the thoracic cavity, which houses the organs of the chest, such as the heart and lungs.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    There are 6 quadrants of the Abdominopelvic Cavity. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because there are actually 4 quadrants of the Abdominopelvic Cavity, not 6. The Abdominopelvic Cavity is divided into four quadrants: the right upper quadrant, left upper quadrant, right lower quadrant, and left lower quadrant. Each quadrant contains specific organs and structures.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    The ________ is an organ separating the Thoracic Cavities with the Abdominopelvic ones. 

    Correct Answer
    Diaphragm
    Explanation
    The diaphragm is a muscle that separates the thoracic cavities, which contain the heart and lungs, from the abdominopelvic cavities, which contain the digestive organs and reproductive organs. It plays a crucial role in respiration by contracting and relaxing to control the volume and pressure of the thoracic cavity.

    The disuse of these organs can lead to Atrophy. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Disuse of organs refers to the lack of regular use or stimulation of certain organs in the body. When organs are not used regularly, they can undergo atrophy, which is a decrease in size and function. Atrophy can occur in various organs, such as muscles, brain, and glands. Therefore, it is true that the disuse of these organs can lead to atrophy.

    A feedback loop involves a ________ that is notified of a problem, which then notifies a ________ to do something about it. Once the second stage is aware of the problem it can then formulate a plan and use a ________ to return the body to homeostasis. 

    Correct Answer
    Sensor
    Control centre
    Effector
    Explanation
    In a feedback loop, a sensor is responsible for detecting a problem or change in the system. The sensor then notifies the control center, which is responsible for processing the information and making decisions on how to address the problem. The control center formulates a plan and sends signals to the effector, which carries out the necessary actions to restore the system to its desired state or homeostasis.
