How to Play
Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Consists mostly of neuron cell bodies
Subdivision that deals with involuntary control of body
P: Impulse moves toward cell body (hopping over myelin in PNS)
Direct route from a sensory to motor neuron via an interneuron
Gaps in myelin sheath along an axon
Result of excessive alcohol consumption during pregnancy
Conducts impulses away from cell body
Division that carries info FROM body sense organs to CNS
Creates new memories; spacial memory, navigation
Conducts impulses toward cell body
Integrates and evaluates sight data
Digestive organ control, consciousness and sleep cyles
Failure of cerebrum to form
'Rest and Digest'
Junction between two neurons
Houses pineal body and choroid plexus to make cerebrospinal fluid
Watery cushion to protect brain, in subarachnoid space, ventricles, and central canal of spinal cord
Forms myelin sheath in PNS
I: Na+ ions into neuron
Keeps harmful substances from brain through Blood
'Fight or Flight'
Naming visual imput and understanding language
Substance that continues a nerve impulse from an axon to a dendrite
Improper formation of the vertebra, leading to a pinched spinal cord
Integrates and evalutates hearing data
Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Connects sensory and motor neurons
Nerve Impulse
Lines cavities of brain and spinal cord; circulates cerebrospinal fluid
Relay station for sensory impulses and sends them to correct cortex
The emotional brain
Grooves in brain
Ridges in brain
Golgi Tendon Organ, Muscle spindle, detecting stretch/tension in muscle
Protects neuron cell bodies
Breathing Control
Consists of cranial and spinal nerves
Planning action and movement, abstract thought, emotion and judgment
Degenerative disorder of the CNS that impairs the sufferer's motor skills, cognitive processes (pill-rolling tremors)
3 connective tissue membranes that cover brain and spinal cord
Involuntary coordination of body movements; balance; cauliflower-shaped
R: Na+ and K+ change places VIA Sodium-Potassium pumps
Division that carries info TO body tissues/organs from CNS
Collects sight data
Understanding language *similar to another area*
Subdivision that deals with voluntary/conscious control of body
R: charge on membrane returns to normal when K+ moves out of neuron
Collects, integrates, and evaluates taste data
Cytoskeleton, maintains neuron shape
D: change in polarity of cell membrane
Heart rate; blood pressure; breathing; swallowing; vomiting; not crocodiles
Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Regulates body temp, H2O balance; part of limbic system
Connects the Left and Right hemispheres of Cerebrum
Collects hearing data
Collects, integrates, and evaluates smell data
Forgetfulness, irritability, difficulty concentrating as aging occurs
produces myelin sheath around CNS nerve fibers
Fiber tracts such as Corpus Callosum
Specialized rough ER in neuron
Fluid buildup on the brain due to failure of cerebrospinal fluid drainage
Star-shaped; braces neurons and controls chemical environment of brain
Pain, Temperature, Meissner corpuscle (touch/texture), Pacinian corpuscle (pressure)
Sends impulses to skeletal muscles
Receives and interprets information from sensory receptors
Plans carrying out complex motor sequences
Gap between adjacent neurons
Spiderlike phagocyte; disposes of debris
Helps you physically say what you want to say
Consists of the brain and spinal cord
Rapid, predicatble and involuntary response to stimuli
Coordinates emotional response to pain and regulates rage and aggresion
Neuromuscular disorder in which voluntary muscles are poorly controlled
Reflex centers for vision and hearing
Inflammation of meninges
