        1. Too much cortisol
        2. Unable to process information
        3. Sensory overload
        4. All the above


      1. Stroking the lumbar flank with a sharp object should cause
        1. Inhibition of the hamstrings ipsilaterally
        2. Facilitation of the hamstrings ipsilaterally
        3. Inhibition of the hamstrings contralaterally
        4. None of the above


      1. In the normal functioning supine patient, all muscles should be
        1. Inhibited
        2. Functioning according to their original design
        3. Facilitated
        4. It depends upon the patient’s condition



      1. As a result of head trauma, a patient may experience

        3. Head fog
        4. All the above


      1. Treating a patient with a traumatic brain injury requires that
        1. Their structural treatments be aggressive
        2. They lay low for a period to recover
        3. Treatments be less aggressive than a more functional patient

      1. Neck proprioception is related to
        1. Lower extremity strength
        2. Extremity coordination
        3. Balance
        4. All the above


      1. When a patient loses their lower extremity endurance, which affects their balance, it may be because
        1. Their brain has reduced ability to control their lower extremity muscles
        2. They lost their unconscious motor planning abilities
        3. They may have a foot muscle imbalance
        4. All the above


      1. Chiropractic can increase proprioception
        1. Which stimulates the brain through the ventral horn
        2. Medication cannot improve proprioception
        3. And that helps modulate autonomic concomitants
        4. Both B and C


      1. In the supine position, the psoas major should be conditionally inhibited
        1. With the head turned ipsilaterally
        2. With the head turned contralaterally
        3. With the head in extension
        4. With any manual muscle test


      1. Stroking the sole of the foot with a sharp object should produce
        1. Conditional inhibition of the rectus femoris ipsilaterally
        2. Conditional facilitation of the rectus femoris ipsilaterally
        3. Conditional facilitation of the rectus femoris contralaterally
        4. None of the above


      1. A heightened startle reflex response can disrupt
        1. Sleep patterns
        2. Serenity
