Reflex centers for vision and hearing
Star-shaped; braces neurons and controls chemical environment of brain
Fluid buildup on the brain due to failure of cerebrospinal fluid drainage
Nerve Impulse
Consists of the brain and spinal cord
Substance that continues a nerve impulse from an axon to a dendrite
Connects sensory and motor neurons
Involuntary coordination of body movements; balance; cauliflower-shaped
Forms myelin sheath in PNS
Connects the Left and Right hemispheres of Cerebrum
Grooves in brain
Creates new memories; spacial memory, navigation
Gaps in myelin sheath along an axon
Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
produces myelin sheath around CNS nerve fibers
I: Na+ ions into neuron
D: change in polarity of cell membrane
Fiber tracts such as Corpus Callosum
Heart rate; blood pressure; breathing; swallowing; vomiting; not crocodiles
Regulates body temp, H2O balance; part of limbic system
Helps you physically say what you want to say
Neuromuscular disorder in which voluntary muscles are poorly controlled
Rapid, predicatble and involuntary response to stimuli
Specialized rough ER in neuron
Houses pineal body and choroid plexus to make cerebrospinal fluid
Coordinates emotional response to pain and regulates rage and aggresion
R: charge on membrane returns to normal when K+ moves out of neuron
Conducts impulses away from cell body
Sends impulses to skeletal muscles
Collects, integrates, and evaluates smell data
Lines cavities of brain and spinal cord; circulates cerebrospinal fluid

'Rest and Digest'
Ridges in brain
Receives and interprets information from sensory receptors
Relay station for sensory impulses and sends them to correct cortex
