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