    Motor control has to do with the neuromuscular system

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Motor control refers to the process by which the brain and nervous system coordinate and regulate the movements of muscles. It involves the interaction between the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system, which includes the nerves that connect the central nervous system to the muscles. The neuromuscular system, which consists of the nerves and muscles working together, plays a crucial role in motor control. Therefore, the statement that motor control has to do with the neuromuscular system is true.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A motor skill is a learned ability to perform a specific action or movement using body, head, and/or limb coordination. It involves the use of muscles and requires physical movement to achieve a specific goal or outcome. Therefore, the statement that a motor skill requires body, head, and/or limb movement to achieve its goal is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Movement and actions are one in the same

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Movement and actions are one in the same" is false. Movement refers to the physical act of changing position or location, while actions refer to the specific behaviors or activities performed by an individual. While movement is a type of action, not all actions involve movement. For example, someone can perform actions such as speaking, thinking, or making decisions without physically moving. Therefore, movement and actions are not synonymous.

Sequential motor skills involve a series of movements performed in a specific order, such as playing a musical instrument. Serial motor skills involve a combination of multiple motor skills performed simultaneously, such as juggling. Continuous motor skills involve sustained and repetitive movements, such as running. Depressing a clutch pedal in a car is a discrete motor skill, as it involves a single movement with a clear beginning and end.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Closed motor skills are when supporting surfaces, objects, and/or people are in motion

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Closed motor skills are not characterized by supporting surfaces, objects, and/or people being in motion. Closed motor skills refer to skills that are performed in a predictable and stable environment, where the performer has control over the situation and there are no external factors affecting the skill execution. In closed motor skills, the supporting surfaces, objects, and/or people are typically stationary, allowing the performer to focus on executing the skill without the interference of external variables. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    • A.

      Stationary conditions

    • B.

      Functional conditions

    • C.

      Regulatory conditions

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Regulatory conditions
    Explanation
    Regulatory conditions refer to the rules, regulations, and constraints imposed by the environment that determine the movement characteristics needed to perform an action. These conditions may include legal requirements, safety standards, or specific guidelines that need to be followed in order to successfully perform the action. In other words, regulatory conditions dictate the parameters within which the action must be executed, ensuring compliance and efficiency. Stationary conditions and functional conditions do not specifically address the regulatory aspect of the environment, making them incorrect options.

    • C.

      Motor neurons

    • D.

      Sensory neurons

    • E.

      Afferent neurons

    Correct Answer
    B. Interneurons
    Explanation
    Interneurons are a type of neuron that are found entirely within the brain or spinal cord. They connect sensory neurons to motor neurons and are responsible for processing and integrating information within the central nervous system. Unlike sensory and motor neurons, which transmit signals to and from the brain and spinal cord, interneurons stay within the central nervous system and facilitate communication between different parts of the nervous system. Therefore, interneurons are the correct answer because they originate and terminate within the brain or spinal cord.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    The receptive region of the neuron is called the ___________

    • A.

      Axon hillock

    • B.

      Soma

    • C.

      Dendrites

    • D.

      Nucleus

    Correct Answer
    C. Dendrites
    Explanation
    The receptive region of the neuron is called the dendrites. Dendrites are the branch-like extensions of the neuron that receive signals from other neurons and transmit them towards the cell body. They play a crucial role in receiving and integrating incoming signals, allowing the neuron to process information and generate an appropriate response. The axon hillock is the region where the axon originates from the cell body. The soma, also known as the cell body, contains the nucleus and other cellular organelles. While the nucleus is responsible for controlling the cell's activities and contains genetic information.

    Rate this question:

  • 32.

    • C.

      Control group

    • D.

      Dependent variable

    Correct Answer
    A. Experimental group
    Explanation
    The experimental group is the group that performs the action or receives the treatment being tested in an experiment. It is the group that is exposed to the independent variable, which is the variable being manipulated by the researcher. The response or outcome that the researcher is searching for is measured in the dependent variable. Therefore, the experimental group is the group that does the action (exposed to the independent variable) and gets the response (measured in the dependent variable) that the researcher is looking for.

    Rate this question:

  • 33. 

    The group that does not change (the group you are comparing to)

    • A.

      Independent variable

      Dependent variable

    • C.

      Control group

    • D.

      Experimental group

    Correct Answer
    C. Control group
    Explanation
    The control group is the group that does not receive any treatment or intervention, serving as a baseline for comparison. It remains unchanged throughout the experiment, allowing researchers to determine the effects of the independent variable on the experimental group. By comparing the experimental group to the control group, any differences in the dependent variable can be attributed to the independent variable.

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    The dependent variable is what you are measuring

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the dependent variable is the variable that is being measured or observed in an experiment. It is the outcome or response variable that is expected to change as a result of manipulating the independent variable. In order to determine the relationship between the independent and dependent variables, the dependent variable must be measured and analyzed. Therefore, the dependent variable is what is being measured in an experiment.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A choice reaction time refers to a situation where multiple signals or stimuli are presented, and each signal requires a specific response. In such cases, individuals must quickly identify each signal and select the appropriate response based on the specific signal they perceive. This contrasts with a simple reaction time, where only one signal is presented, and the response is straightforward. Therefore, the given statement is true as it accurately describes the concept of choice reaction time.

    Rate this question:

  • 38. 

    Response time is equal to reaction time + movement time

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Algebraic value of difference between the actual performance on each trial and the criterion for each trial

    • A.

      Absolute error

    • B.

      Variable error

    • C.

      Constant error

    • D.

      Standard error

    Correct Answer
    C. Constant error
    Explanation
    Constant error refers to the algebraic value of the difference between the actual performance on each trial and the criterion for each trial. In other words, it represents a consistent and systematic deviation from the desired or expected outcome. Unlike variable error, which fluctuates randomly, or absolute error, which measures the magnitude of the difference without considering the direction, constant error indicates a consistent bias in one direction. Standard error, on the other hand, is a measure of the variability or dispersion of a set of data points.

    To find the dependent variable mean, you take the summation of all the scores (x) and divide by the number of scores (n)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because finding the dependent variable mean involves adding up all the scores (x) and then dividing by the total number of scores (n). This calculation allows us to determine the average or mean value of the dependent variable.

    The change in velocity during movement is

    • A.

      Force

    • B.

      Acceleration

    • C.

      Kinetics

    • D.

      Displacement

    Correct Answer
    B. Acceleration
    Explanation
    Acceleration is the correct answer because it represents the rate at which the velocity of an object changes over time. When an object is in motion, its velocity is constantly changing, either by speeding up, slowing down, or changing direction. Acceleration is directly related to the force acting on the object, according to Newton's second law of motion. Therefore, acceleration is the most appropriate term to describe the change in velocity during movement.

    The rate of change in an object position with respect to time is know as ______

    • A.

      Magnitude

    • B.

      Speed

    • C.

      Acceleration

    • D.

      Velocity

    • E.

      Torque

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Speed
    D. Velocity
    Explanation
    The rate of change in an object's position with respect to time is known as speed or velocity. Speed refers to the distance traveled per unit of time, while velocity includes both the speed and the direction of motion. Acceleration, on the other hand, refers to the rate of change of velocity with respect to time. Torque is a measure of the force that causes an object to rotate.

    A measure of distance from an initial position to the final position is known as ______

    • A.

      Velocity

    • B.

      Magnitude

    • C.

      Vector

    • D.

      Displacement

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. Displacement
    Explanation
    Displacement is the correct answer because it refers to the measure of distance from an initial position to the final position. It takes into account both the magnitude and direction of the movement, making it a vector quantity. Velocity is the rate of change of displacement over time, magnitude refers to the size or quantity of a vector, and none of the above does not accurately describe the measure of distance from an initial position to the final position.

    • A.

      Momentum

    • B.

      Speed

    • C.

      Inertia

    • D.

      Acceleration

    Correct Answer
    B. Speed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is speed because the formula for displacement divided by time is a measure of how quickly an object is moving, which is commonly referred to as speed. Displacement refers to the change in position of an object, and time is the duration it takes for that change to occur. Therefore, dividing displacement by time gives us the rate at which the object is moving, or its speed.

      Displacement

    Correct Answer
    C. Acceleration
    Explanation
    The correct answer is acceleration. Velocity divided by time gives us the rate of change of velocity, which is acceleration. Acceleration measures how quickly an object's velocity is changing over time. It is a vector quantity, meaning it has both magnitude and direction.
