Question 11 (1 point)
Which term is used to describe a complication that can result from a spinal cord injury above T6 that is producing paroxysmal hypertension, as well as piloerection and sweating above the spinal cord lesion?
Question 11 options:
Question 12 (1 point)
Why does a person who has a spinal cord injury experience faulty control of sweating?
Question 12 options:
The hypothalamus is unable to regulate body heat as a result of damage to the sympathetic nervous system.
The thalamus is unable to regulate body heat as a result of damage to the sympathetic nervous system.
The hypothalamus is unable to regulate body heat as a result of damage to the parasympathetic nervous system.
The thalamus is unable to regulate body heat as a result of damage to spinal nerve roots.

Spinal cord injuries most likely occur in which region?
Question 13 options:
Cervical and thoracic
Thoracic and lumbar
Lumbar and sacral
Cervical and thoracic-lumbar
Question 14 (1 point)
The most likely rationale for body temperature fluctuations after cervical spinal cord injury is that the person has:
Question 14 options:
Developed bilateral pneumonia or a urinary tract infection (UTI)
Sustained sympathetic nervous system damage resulting in disturbed thermal control
Sustained a head injury that damaged the hypothalamus’s ability to regulate temperature
Developed septicemia from posttrauma infection
Question 15 (1 point)
Multiple sclerosis is best described as a(an):
Question 15 options:
CNS demyelination, possibly from an immunogenetic virus
Inadequate supply of acetylcholine at the neurotransmitter junction as a result of an autoimmune disorder
Depletion of dopamine in the CNS as a result of a virus
Degenerative disorder of lower and upper motor neurons caused by viral-immune factors

Results in asymmetric paralysis
Is an outcome of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
Question 18 (1 point)
It is true that myasthenia gravis:
Question 18 options:
Is an acute autoimmune disease
Affects the nerve roots
May result in adrenergic crisis

Question 19 options:
Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS)
Question 20 (1 point)
Question 20 options:
What data confer the link between bipolar disorders and schizophrenia?
Individuals with bipolar disorder who exhibit psychotic behaviors have deficits in reelin expression linked to genetic loci located on chromosome 22.
Individuals with schizophrenia who exhibit psychotic behaviors have deficits in serotonin linked to genetic loci located on chromosome 16.
Individuals with bipolar disorder who exhibit psychotic behaviors have deficits in gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) linked to genetic loci located on chromosome 20.
Individuals with schizophrenia who exhibit psychotic behaviors have deficits in reelin expression linked to genetic loci located on chromosome 18.
