Synapse MCQs with Answers

Hello students, our next topic for the MCQ is ‘SYNAPSE’. A neuron basically transmits nerve impulses through itself. But when it comes to send that impulse to another cell, neuron will send chemicals to other neuron across a very small gap between them and these junctions are Synapse. The neuron will form synapses with sensory receptor, effector cells and other neurons.

The following MCQ will help you more to understand this synapse topic.

 

MCQ.1): The junction between two ………………………………….. Is known as synapse.

a) Muscles

b) Neurons

c) Cells

d) Filaments

 

MCQ.2): In the synapse, the ………………………………… contains receptor sites for neurotransmitter.

a) Presynaptic endings

b) Postsynaptic endings

c) Synaptic cleft

d) None of these

 

MCQ. 3): …………………………………..Is a synapse of a neuron and endocrine or endocrine gland.

a) Synapse with another neuron

b) Neuromuscular

c) Synapse with same neuron

d) Neuroglandular

 

MCQ.4): The ……………………………………. Is the anatomic site where communication occurs.

a) Synapse

b) Muscle

c) Junction
