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