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

Integrates and evalutates hearing data
Junction between two neurons
Golgi Tendon Organ, Muscle spindle, detecting stretch/tension in muscle
Connects sensory and motor neurons
Consists mostly of neuron cell bodies
Collects, integrates, and evaluates smell data
Regulates body temp, H2O balance; part of limbic system
D: change in polarity of cell membrane
