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