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