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