NC449-450Q 婷婷


Translation and explanation in Chinese?

Define the following terms: angiography, coma, CT, dichotic listening, dominant inheritance, electroencephalography, electromyography, MRI, recessive inheritance, stupor, X-linked inheritance.


X-ray technique that involves injection of radiopaque substance for examining the structural architecture of blood vessels.


State of profound unconsciousness in which the patient does not respond to respond to sensory stimuli. It is usually seen in patients with TBI and with cerebral toxicity.


X-ray brain-imaging technique that provides cross-sectional images of the live brain and body in different planes.

dichotic listening

Neuropsychological testing tool that involves simultaneous presentation of auditory stimuli to both ears. It is used for evaluating cerebral dominance.

dominant inheritance

Genetic expression mode in which a dysfunctional allele possessed by on parent dominates the second allele from the other parent. Each offspring has a 50% probability of inheriting this dysfunctional gene and the disorder.


Technique that records normal and abnormal electrical activity from the brain. Also used to evaluate seizure disorders.


Visual record of muscle electrical activity during rest and spontaneous and/or voluntary movements. It is used to determine causes of muscular weakness, paralysis, and involuntary twitching.


Imaging technique that uses magnetic activity of the tissue to create clear images of the living brain and body.

recessive inheritance

Genetic mode of inheritance in which both parents transmit the same affected alleles. It results in 25% probability of this dysfunctional gene transmission from both parents and the child being affected with the condition.


Unresponsiveness from which a patient can be aroused transiently with strong and repeated stimulation.

X-linked inheritance

Genetic inheritance mode where diseases or traits are transmitted by a gene or genes on the X (sex) chromosome.


List the four major types of brain waves and their corresponding frequencies



NC449Q3 寬哲

List four subtypes of seizures?

1. 中央顳葉癲癇

2. 枕葉癲癇

3. 失神癲癇


NC449Q04 宜蒨

What is the risk probability associated with dominant inheritance




NC449Q5 鳳徵 Q5 is about recessive inheritance, not dominant inheritance as in Q4

What is the risk probability associated with dominant / recessive inheritance



。帶有顯性疾病因子的人與一般正常人結婚,也有二分之一的機會生育出異常的下一代。在單基因的遺傳疾病中以此類遺傳最為常見。一般為垂直遺傳(vertical tranmission )即每代皆有病。得病與性別無關,有許多的病患可能為新的突變。此異常被認為可能與父親年紀較高有關。



Match each of the numbered techniques with its lettered concept.



sodium Amytal infusion

evoked potentials

dichotic listening

lumbar puncture

evaluation of electrical activity in muscles for diagnosing nerve and muscle diseases

recording electrical brain activity evoked in response to specific stimuli

recording of brain’s electrical potentials for diagnosing seizure disorders

determining cerebral dominance by induced hemispheric anesthetization

diagnosing CNS infections and intracerebral hemorrhages

identifying cerebral dominance using bilateral presentation of auditory stimuli
