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