(d) Yes, because the nerve impulses are also carried to the brain through another
neural pathway.
(e) The person could feel the tap but the leg would not kick immediately.

16.8 What are voluntary actions?

Reflex actions Voluntary actions

B. Structured questions
1. (a) A – cerebrum / cerebral cortex, B – cerebellum, C – medulla, D – spinal cord
(b) He would have difficulty in maintaining balance and could not make precise and
accurate movements.
(c) This increases the surface area so that a greater number of brain cells can be
packed into the cerebral cortex.
(d) It controls breathing rate. It controls heart rate.
(e) The brain is enclosed in the cranium of the skull.
It is surrounded by cerebrospinal fluid which acts as a cushion to absorb shock.
2. (a)
cross section of spinal cord

grey matter

dorsal root

effector white matter

(biceps muscles) motor neurone
pain receptor
sensory neurone

a pin

(b) (i) neurone ‘X’

(ii) motor neurone
(iii) sensory neurone
(c) knee-jerk reflex, blinking, or any other reflexes
3. (a) islets of Langerhans
(b) glucagon
(c) insulin
(d) liver
(e) glycogen
(f) glucose
(g) glucose
(h) glycogen
4. (a) A – thyroid gland B – pancreas/islets of Langerhans
C – adrenal gland D – ovary
(b) They are the pancreas and the ovary.
The pancreas produces pancreatic juice for digestion.
The ovary produces ovum for reproduction.
(c) The hormones are transported by blood in blood vessels.
(d) (i) insulin/glucagon
(ii) Insulin stimulates the liver to change excess glucose into glycogen./ Glucagon
stimulates the liver to change glycogen back to glucose.
C. STS Connections
(a) Atropine and curare
(b) LSD, nicotine and caffeine (Any two)
(c) Atropine inhibits the transmission across the synapse. The nerve impulses produced by
the stimulated light receptors cannot be passed to the iris muscle.
(d) It may lead to drug addiction and even death. It can seriously damage the body,
especially the nervous system.

(c) Name Function

A synovial fluid acts as a lubricant to reduce friction

B cartilage absorbs shock

C synovial membrane secretes synovial fluid

D ligament connects bones to bones

(d) D
(e) The wearing away of part B exposes the pain receptor which will be stimulated to
cause pain.
(f) The metal joint does not have ligaments, synovial fluid or cartilage.
Blood cells are not produced by the metal joint.
2. (a) X – ball-and-socket joint; Y – hinge joint
(b) Joint X allows movement in three planes / all directions.
Joint Y allows movement in one plane only.
(c) synovial fluid and articular cartilage
(d) (i) They work in pairs but export opposing actions. When one muscle contracts,
the other relaxes.


(e) B is the flexor because it bends a limb by its contraction.

(i) screw A shoulder joint
(ii) screw B elbow joint
(iii) balloon X biceps
(iv) balloon Y triceps

reasonable answers)
2. (a) It is a disease with the decrease in the level of minerals, especially calcium, in the
