With the help of diagram show the movement of food from mouth to the stomach. What muscles and nerves are involved in the movement of food and what is this action called as? (AS5)
a) The food moves down from the mouth to the stomach through oesophagus.
b) The food is pushed further in the oesophagus by the action of circular and longitudinal muscles that constitute the walls of the food pipe. These muscles work involuntarily in coordination to produce wave like movements in the food pipe and are under the control of autonomous nervous system.

Consider that you are passing by a garbage disposal area and you immediately cover your nose. Arrange the events below in a logical order by marking them from 1 to 5 to trace the events that happen in the nervous system from detection of foul smell (stimulus generation) to covering your nose (response). (AS1)
A. At the end of the axon, electrical impulse releases chemicals
B. Stimulus received by the dendrites of a neuron sets off a chemical reaction that creates an electrical impulse.
C. Electrical impulse transmitted through cell body and axon
D. The chemicals cross the synapse and reach the next neuron. Similarly, the electrical impulse crosses several neurons
E. Finally, the impulse is delivered from neuron to the gland that helps in recognition of the foul smell and muscle cells that help in covering the noseAP - Biology
