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