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