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