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