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