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