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