Neurology Quiz The Brain

Well, this quiz is from my actual class lecture, and I made it see if it would help me to retain the information. I would like to know if its as hard for you folks out there as it is for me!

Well, good luck with this quiz maybe you can give my neurology class some advice. These are standard questions from my neurology lecture so if you do well, we all should right?

Spinal cord one layer, brain two
spinal cord two layers, brain one
both brain and spianl cord have two layers
both brain and spinal cord have one layer

along the transverse fissure
along the longtitudinal fissure
alogn the occipital lobe
along the midsaggital fissure
19. what does the falx cerebelli separate?
The parietal lobe
the cerebrum form the brainstem
The pons from the medula oblongata
the right and left cerebellar hemispheres
20. what does the tentorium cerebelli spearate?
The cerebellum form the occipital lobe
The cerebellum from the ocular nerve
The cerebellum from the temporal lobe
the cerebellum form the parietal lobe
21. What is the most important structure to be found in arachnoid mater
blood vessels
22. what separates the arachnoid mater, what is it filled with, and why?
separated by subdural space, serous fluid, for cushioning of brain/cord
Epidural space, CSF, for cushioning of vertebrae
occipital lobe, filled with synovial fuid, cushions cervical vertebrae
23. subarachnoid space lies innermost to cerebrum and is filed with serous fluid
none of these
24. how does the pia mater lie in relation to its layer?
In the middle
deep to the cerebrum
25. what is the pia mater directly attached to?
the cerebrum
