Physio - L15, motor function of basal ganglia


Lecture Video


1- Basal ganglia is functionally related to:

A- Subsatantia nigra

B- Subthalamus nuclei

C- Neostriatum

D- A+B

2- The most important part of basal ganglia is:

A- Caudate N.

B- Puteman

C- Neostriatum

D- Sub thalamus

3- The first 2 stages of voluntary movement pathway are done:

A- At motor area 4

B- Around motor area 4

C- At caudate N.

4- Connections of basal ganglia with cerebral cortex ends at:

A- Thalamus

B- Caudate N.

C- Other cortical areas

D- Thalamus

5- Fibers from cerebral cortex secretes:

A- Ach


C- Glutamate

D- Serotonin

6- Nigro-striatal pathway is:

A- GABA ergic

B- Cholinergic

C- Dopaminergic

D- All of the above

7- Striato nigral pathway is:

A- GABA ergic

B- Cholinergic

C- Dopaminergic

D-All of the above

8- Functions of basal ganglia includes:

A- Cognitive control of movement

B- Control of intensity of movement

C- Excution of movement

D- Control of muscle tone

E- All of the above

True and false

9- Last stage that voluntary movement passes through is execution of movement. (T or F)

10- Caudate circuit has a role in control of timing of movement. (T or F)

11- Puteman circuit has a role in cognitive control of voluntary movements ( T or F )

12- Fibers from basal ganglia ti brain stem constitute part of extra pyramidal tract ( Tor F)

13- Basal ganglia has no connections with itself. ( T or F)

14- Basal ganglia functions only by itself & occupies large part at only one hemisphere (T or F)

15- Parkinsonism is due to lack of Ach. ( T or F)
