    hi all,
    For those that have done Comlex Qbank (crap), did you guy get all the vicerosomatic reflex questions on the kidneys wrong? I always pick the answer choice for kidneys as T10-T11 (which is from Savarese), but Kaplan Qbank has the correct answer as T11-L1!
    It also state that T10-T11 is Gonads only.

    thanks

    I haven't done any of those, but I remember learning a few days ago as kindeys are T12-L1.
    Adrenals are T11-12.

    Thanks. But, what you're refering to is the posterior Chapman's reflex points.
    What i'm talking about is the sympathetic innervation of viscerosomatic reflex. Here are the common ones:

    appendix: T12
    Kidneys: T10-T11
    Adrenal: T10
    Upper ureter: T10-T11
    lower ureter: T12-L1
    ect.ect.ect......

    Honestly, I have no idea what the difference is between chapman's reflex and sympathetic innervation of viscerasomatic reflex points.
