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