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