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