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