The emotional brain
Division that carries info FROM body sense organs to CNS
Collects, integrates, and evaluates smell data
Involuntary coordination of body movements; balance; cauliflower-shaped
Watery cushion to protect brain, in subarachnoid space, ventricles, and central canal of spinal cord
Receives and interprets information from sensory receptors
Plans carrying out complex motor sequences
Fluid buildup on the brain due to failure of cerebrospinal fluid drainage
Keeps harmful substances from brain through Blood
Creates new memories; spacial memory, navigation
Failure of cerebrum to form
Forms myelin sheath in PNS

Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Ridges in brain
Connects the Left and Right hemispheres of Cerebrum
I: Na+ ions into neuron
Nerve Impulse
Grooves in brain
Division that carries info TO body tissues/organs from CNS
