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