D: change in polarity of cell membrane
Gaps in myelin sheath along an axon
Coordinates emotional response to pain and regulates rage and aggresion
Failure of cerebrum to form
Degenerative disorder of the CNS that impairs the sufferer's motor skills, cognitive processes (pill-rolling tremors)
Breathing Control
Star-shaped; braces neurons and controls chemical environment of brain
Connects the Left and Right hemispheres of Cerebrum
Cytoskeleton, maintains neuron shape
Houses pineal body and choroid plexus to make cerebrospinal fluid
Rapid, predicatble and involuntary response to stimuli
Pain, Temperature, Meissner corpuscle (touch/texture), Pacinian corpuscle (pressure)
Plans carrying out complex motor sequences
Division that carries info FROM body sense organs to CNS
Specialized rough ER in neuron
The emotional brain
Division that carries info TO body tissues/organs from CNS
Substance that continues a nerve impulse from an axon to a dendrite
Involuntary coordination of body movements; balance; cauliflower-shaped
Naming visual imput and understanding language
Consists of cranial and spinal nerves
Watery cushion to protect brain, in subarachnoid space, ventricles, and central canal of spinal cord
Collects, integrates, and evaluates taste data
Golgi Tendon Organ, Muscle spindle, detecting stretch/tension in muscle
Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Subdivision that deals with involuntary control of body
Integrates and evaluates sight data
P: Impulse moves toward cell body (hopping over myelin in PNS)
Ridges in brain
Result of excessive alcohol consumption during pregnancy
Spiderlike phagocyte; disposes of debris
R: charge on membrane returns to normal when K+ moves out of neuron
Conducts impulses away from cell body
Receives and interprets information from sensory receptors
'Fight or Flight'
Helps you physically say what you want to say
Collects, integrates, and evaluates smell data
Neuromuscular disorder in which voluntary muscles are poorly controlled
Inflammation of meninges

Sends impulses to skeletal muscles
Nerve Impulse

Regulates body temp, H2O balance; part of limbic system
Lines cavities of brain and spinal cord; circulates cerebrospinal fluid
Collects hearing data
Forgetfulness, irritability, difficulty concentrating as aging occurs
Collects sight data
Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Integrates and evalutates hearing data
Creates new memories; spacial memory, navigation
Fluid buildup on the brain due to failure of cerebrospinal fluid drainage
