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