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