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