Crossword
Description

a unit of heredity that is transferred from a parent to offspring and is held to determine some characteristic of the offspring Genes
pairs of chromosomes that have similar genetic information Homologous Chromosomes
sex cells Gametes
determine sex or gender Sex chromosomes
determine all traits except gender Autosomes
having a single set of unpaired chromosomes Haploid
containing two complete sets of chromosomes, one from each parent Diploid
Cell division process that forms gametes Meiosis
genetically determined characteristics Traits
a genetic cross between a homozygous recessive individual and a corresponding suspected heterozygote to determine the genotype of the latter Testcross

the more powerful gene Dominant
the less powerful gene Recessive
a grid system that is used to predict all possible genotypes resulting from a cross Punnett squares
uses a Punnett Square to observe the possible outcomes and probablilities for one trait Monohybrid cross
uses a Punnett Square to observe the possible outcomes and probabilities for two traits Dihybrid cross
allele pairs seperate independently of each other during gamete formation Law of independent assortment
the extent to which an event is likely to occur Probability
the exchange of chromosome segments between homologous chromosomes Cross over
genes that are closer together on the chromosome are more likely to be inherited together Genetic linkage
a person or other organism that has inherited a recessive allele for a genetic trait or mutation but does not display that trait or show symptoms of the disease Carrier
genes located in the sex chromosome Sex linked genes
the phenotype is somewhere between the two traits Incomplete dominance
both traits are fully expressed Codominance
traits that are controlled by a group of nonallelic genes Polygenic traits
ancestral lines or charts depicting the lineage or descent of an individual Pedigrees

Neuron Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

a specialized cell transmitting nerve impulses; a nerve cell. Neuron
a chemical substance which is released at the end of a nerve fibre by the arrival of a nerve impulse and, by diffusing across the synapse or junction, effects the transfer of the impulse to another nerve fibre, a muscle fibre, or some other structure. Neurotransmitter
relating to sensation or the physical senses; transmitted or perceived by the senses. Sensory
Share. Motor neurone disease (MND) is a condition which causes weakness in the muscles that gets worse and eventually leads to paralysis. It is also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS. Motor
a junction between two nerve cells, consisting of a minute gap across which impulses pass by diffusion of a neurotransmitter Synapse
near the surface of the body, with special reference to the circulation and nervous system. Peripheral
a neuron which transmits impulses between other neurons, especially as part of a reflex arc. Interneuron
the complex of nerve tissues that controls the activities of the body. In vertebrates it comprises the brain and spinal cord. Central
a non-specialised sensory receptor, or more accurately the receptive portion of a sensory neuron, that codes absolute and relative changes in temperature, primarily within the innocuous range. Thermoreceptor
a sense organ or cell that responds to mechanical stimuli such as touch or sound. Mechanoreceptors
a sensory cell or organ responsive to chemical stimuli. Chemoreceptors
A thing or event that evoke a specific functional reaction in the organ or tissue Stimuli
a region of the forebrain below the thalamus which coordinates both the autonomic nervous system and the activity of the pituitary. Hypothalamus

Widespread muscle pain and tenderness Fibromyalgia
a metabolic disease in which the body’s inability to produce any or enough insulin causes elevated levels of glucose in the blood Diabetes
condition in which a person's airways become inflamed, narrow and swell, and produce extra mucus, which makes it difficult to breathe Asthma
group of genetic diseases that cause progressive weakness and loss of muscle mass Dystrophy
