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