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