Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Planning action and movement, abstract thought, emotion and judgment
produces myelin sheath around CNS nerve fibers
Result of excessive alcohol consumption during pregnancy
P: Impulse moves toward cell body (hopping over myelin in PNS)
Digestive organ control, consciousness and sleep cyles
Protects neuron cell bodies
Connects the Left and Right hemispheres of Cerebrum
Relay station for sensory impulses and sends them to correct cortex
Collects, integrates, and evaluates taste data
Grooves in brain
Breathing Control
Star-shaped; braces neurons and controls chemical environment of brain
Forgetfulness, irritability, difficulty concentrating as aging occurs
Understanding language *similar to another area*
Substance that continues a nerve impulse from an axon to a dendrite
Gap between adjacent neurons
Specialized rough ER in neuron
Integrates and evaluates sight data
Conducts impulses toward cell body
Consists of cranial and spinal nerves
Reflex centers for vision and hearing
Houses pineal body and choroid plexus to make cerebrospinal fluid
3 connective tissue membranes that cover brain and spinal cord
Golgi Tendon Organ, Muscle spindle, detecting stretch/tension in muscle
Consists mostly of neuron cell bodies
Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Receives and interprets information from sensory receptors
Division that carries info FROM body sense organs to CNS
Heart rate; blood pressure; breathing; swallowing; vomiting; not crocodiles
Division that carries info TO body tissues/organs from CNS
Rapid, predicatble and involuntary response to stimuli
Degenerative disorder of the CNS that impairs the sufferer's motor skills, cognitive processes (pill-rolling tremors)
Plans carrying out complex motor sequences
Collects hearing data
Cytoskeleton, maintains neuron shape
'Fight or Flight'
Neuromuscular disorder in which voluntary muscles are poorly controlled
Failure of cerebrum to form
Improper formation of the vertebra, leading to a pinched spinal cord
Connects sensory and motor neurons
Pain, Temperature, Meissner corpuscle (touch/texture), Pacinian corpuscle (pressure)
Spiderlike phagocyte; disposes of debris
Naming visual imput and understanding language
Collects, integrates, and evaluates smell data

Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Sends impulses to skeletal muscles
Coordinates emotional response to pain and regulates rage and aggresion
Helps you physically say what you want to say
Integrates and evalutates hearing data
Lines cavities of brain and spinal cord; circulates cerebrospinal fluid
D: change in polarity of cell membrane
I: Na+ ions into neuron
R: Na+ and K+ change places VIA Sodium-Potassium pumps
R: charge on membrane returns to normal when K+ moves out of neuron
Creates new memories; spacial memory, navigation
Fiber tracts such as Corpus Callosum
Ridges in brain
Fluid buildup on the brain due to failure of cerebrospinal fluid drainage
Inflammation of meninges
Gaps in myelin sheath along an axon
Involuntary coordination of body movements; balance; cauliflower-shaped
Consists of the brain and spinal cord
Keeps harmful substances from brain through Blood
Conducts impulses away from cell body
Subdivision that deals with involuntary control of body
Junction between two neurons
The emotional brain
Subdivision that deals with voluntary/conscious control of body
