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