Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Integrates and evaluates sight data
Neuromuscular disorder in which voluntary muscles are poorly controlled
Spiderlike phagocyte; disposes of debris
Golgi Tendon Organ, Muscle spindle, detecting stretch/tension in muscle
Collects sight data
Relay station for sensory impulses and sends them to correct cortex
Coordinates emotional response to pain and regulates rage and aggresion
Keeps harmful substances from brain through Blood

produces myelin sheath around CNS nerve fibers
Integrates and evalutates hearing data
Houses pineal body and choroid plexus to make cerebrospinal fluid
Improper formation of the vertebra, leading to a pinched spinal cord
Collects, integrates, and evaluates taste data
'Fight or Flight'
Grooves in brain
Connects the Left and Right hemispheres of Cerebrum
P: Impulse moves toward cell body (hopping over myelin in PNS)
Conducts impulses away from cell body
Protects neuron cell bodies
Specialized rough ER in neuron
Substance that continues a nerve impulse from an axon to a dendrite
Gaps in myelin sheath along an axon
Collects hearing data
D: change in polarity of cell membrane
Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
R: charge on membrane returns to normal when K+ moves out of neuron
Inflammation of meninges
Collects, integrates, and evaluates smell data
Fluid buildup on the brain due to failure of cerebrospinal fluid drainage
Receives and interprets information from sensory receptors
Watery cushion to protect brain, in subarachnoid space, ventricles, and central canal of spinal cord
Regulates body temp, H2O balance; part of limbic system
Division that carries info FROM body sense organs to CNS
Ridges in brain
Consists of the brain and spinal cord
Nerve Impulse
Understanding language *similar to another area*
Subdivision that deals with involuntary control of body
Consists mostly of neuron cell bodies
I: Na+ ions into neuron
Forms myelin sheath in PNS
Fiber tracts such as Corpus Callosum
Star-shaped; braces neurons and controls chemical environment of brain
Failure of cerebrum to form
Heart rate; blood pressure; breathing; swallowing; vomiting; not crocodiles

Subdivision that deals with voluntary/conscious control of body
Consists of cranial and spinal nerves

Planning action and movement, abstract thought, emotion and judgment
Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Division that carries info TO body tissues/organs from CNS
Creates new memories; spacial memory, navigation
Gap between adjacent neurons
3 connective tissue membranes that cover brain and spinal cord
Naming visual imput and understanding language
Conducts impulses toward cell body

Plans carrying out complex motor sequences
R: Na+ and K+ change places VIA Sodium-Potassium pumps
Cytoskeleton, maintains neuron shape
Junction between two neurons
Forgetfulness, irritability, difficulty concentrating as aging occurs
Connects sensory and motor neurons
Result of excessive alcohol consumption during pregnancy
Involuntary coordination of body movements; balance; cauliflower-shaped
Digestive organ control, consciousness and sleep cyles
The emotional brain
Lines cavities of brain and spinal cord; circulates cerebrospinal fluid
Breathing Control
Degenerative disorder of the CNS that impairs the sufferer's motor skills, cognitive processes (pill-rolling tremors)
Pain, Temperature, Meissner corpuscle (touch/texture), Pacinian corpuscle (pressure)
Reflex centers for vision and hearing
Sends impulses to skeletal muscles
