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