Nervous System Quizzes & Trivia

The nervous system is an integral part of the human body through which body movement is controlled and conducts stimuli from sensory receptors to the brain and spinal cord. The Central Nervous system includes Brain and Spinal Cord and the peripheral nervous system carries impulses to and from CNS. This quiz has been developed to test your knowledge and to learn about Human Anatomy as well as the Nervous System. So, let's try out the quiz. All the best!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    The central nervous system is made up of two components:
    • A. 

      The brain

    • B. 

      Recpetors of sensation

    • C. 

      The spinal cord

    • D. 

      Cranial nerves III VII, IX and X

    • E. 

      Dorsal root ganglia

  • 2. 
    The autonomic Nervous system includes the _____________ and ___________ systems (pick two)
    • A. 

      Parasympathetic

    • B. 

      Cognative

    • C. 

      Sensory

    • D. 

      Sympathetic

    • E. 

      Endocrine

  • 3. 
    Parasympathetic include 2 components
    • A. 

      Cranial nerves III, IV, IX, X

    • B. 

      Sympathetic chain ganglia

    • C. 

      Terminal ganglia

    • D. 

      Prevertebral Ganglia

  • 4. 
    The method of which we integrate (detect/ analyze/respond) sensory information is the only purpose of the Nervous system - Knowing this, why do OTs and OTA's Study Neuro Anatomy?
    • A. 

      Each component has a specific purpose and when any component is rendered unable to perform, the body is no longer able to successfully, economically and/or safely integrate sensory information.

    • B. 

      There is an economical advantage to becoming an OT who specializes in injures of the Nuero-motor system. As CVA, spinal cord and TBI's increase due to age and trauma. the OT who specializes in this area will be in demand and Highly employable.

    • C. 

      All systems are circular in nature. The nervous system is no exception to that rule. you may not damage or effect one component of the system without damaging or effecting part or all of the other components. When damage of this nature occurs, Sytem failures ensues!

    • D. 

      Both A & C

    • E. 

      Both B & C
