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