Pain, Temperature, Meissner corpuscle (touch/texture), Pacinian corpuscle (pressure)
Collects, integrates, and evaluates taste data
Sends impulses to skeletal muscles

Subdivision that deals with voluntary/conscious control of body
I: Na+ ions into neuron
Consists mostly of neuron cell bodies
Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Conducts impulses away from cell body
P: Impulse moves toward cell body (hopping over myelin in PNS)
Subdivision that deals with involuntary control of body
Regulates body temp, H2O balance; part of limbic system

Junction between two neurons
produces myelin sheath around CNS nerve fibers
Collects, integrates, and evaluates smell data
Heart rate; blood pressure; breathing; swallowing; vomiting; not crocodiles
Specialized rough ER in neuron
Lines cavities of brain and spinal cord; circulates cerebrospinal fluid
