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