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