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