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