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