Can someone give me an explanation on what exactly neuroganglia are? I couldn't find anything searching the internet. Maybe the rules spelled it wrong...?

If I'm not mistaken, Neuroganglia=Ganglia, clusters of cell bodies in the PNS (e.g. dorsal root ganglia, cranial nerve ganglia, autonomic ganglia). The Wikipedia page.

In other news...
I...I'm so confused...

I swear, all I looked up was images of hypothalamic nuclei and that was only 4 rows down...

How much do we need to know about sleep? Thanks!

I would know:
General sleep cycle
Four types of brain waves and its associated stages of sleep
Theories about why we dream and why we sleep
Neurophysiology of sleep

thanks! is there an official place where we could get the theories of sleep? i just have the inactivity theory, brain plasticity theory, energy restoration theory. is that it?

Honestly, I haven't even seen this topic come up in a test. I got everything from Wikipedia :P

How in-depth should we go on parts of the brain? It only says to learn the 'major regions and their functions' in the rules, but it's not specific on what major regions.

Would baroreceptors be considered under chemorecptors, and nocireceptors under mechanoreptors ( in classification terms )? :?:

Hi! can anyone recommend a good detailed diagram of the brain that we could put on our sheet during the exam? thank you!

Mechanoreceptors because they sense pressure changes and those result from tensile stretches

They keep brain regions vague on purpose. The best figure I've found (and realize that I've mined a number of anatomy and neuroscience books) is actually from a Google search (images or normal for a PDF, don't remember). It shows a myriad of regions and labels localized functionality. I prefer figures that hit structure and function together to save space.

Do you know any diagrams that we need to know for Endocrine system? I only got what hormones are produced where and their functions.

I'm using a diagram of the different organs, stating where they are and their functions, as well a diagram of how the pituitary gland is connected to the hypothalamus, and another diagram of the functions of the anterior and posterior pituitary gland.

Hope this helps!

do the brain regions stay vauge ( the lobes ) or do they get into specifics during tests ?

Specifics definitely.
