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