(1pts)

 

[removed]

 

autonomic and peripheral systems.

 

[removed]

 

central and peripheral nervous systems.

(1pts)

 

[removed]

 

The sympathetic branch of the autonomic system usually speeds up the activities of the body.

 

[removed]

 

Both the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems send nerves to all organs.

 

[removed]

 

The sympathetic branch can have either excitatory or inhibitory effects depending on effects from the environment.

 

[removed]

(1pts)

 

[removed]

 

route of input.

 

[removed]

 

how much memory is already stored.

 

[removed]

 

content.

23) The reason that some individual hormones have so many different effects is that

 

(1pts)

 

[removed]

 

they influence gene transcription.

 

[removed]

 

the hormone is carried throughout the body and only a small amount is needed to produce its effect.

 

[removed]

 

they trigger a second messenger system that produces a cascade of effects.

 

[removed]

 

there are a great many different cells in different tissues that have specific receptors for the hormone.
