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