Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
produces myelin sheath around CNS nerve fibers
Forgetfulness, irritability, difficulty concentrating as aging occurs
Houses pineal body and choroid plexus to make cerebrospinal fluid
Plans carrying out complex motor sequences
Junction between two neurons
Specialized rough ER in neuron
Consists of the brain and spinal cord
Subdivision that deals with involuntary control of body
Improper formation of the vertebra, leading to a pinched spinal cord
Inflammation of meninges

3 connective tissue membranes that cover brain and spinal cord
Pain, Temperature, Meissner corpuscle (touch/texture), Pacinian corpuscle (pressure)
R: Na+ and K+ change places VIA Sodium-Potassium pumps
Failure of cerebrum to form
Creates new memories; spacial memory, navigation
Involuntary coordination of body movements; balance; cauliflower-shaped
Ridges in brain
Regulates body temp, H2O balance; part of limbic system
Connects the Left and Right hemispheres of Cerebrum
Integrates and evaluates sight data
The emotional brain
Forms myelin sheath in PNS
Cytoskeleton, maintains neuron shape
Division that carries info TO body tissues/organs from CNS
Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Direct route from a sensory to motor neuron via an interneuron
Relay station for sensory impulses and sends them to correct cortex
Result of excessive alcohol consumption during pregnancy
Reflex centers for vision and hearing
Collects, integrates, and evaluates smell data
Collects, integrates, and evaluates taste data
Naming visual imput and understanding language
Grooves in brain
Nerve Impulse
Integrates and evalutates hearing data
Fiber tracts such as Corpus Callosum
Protects neuron cell bodies

Function/DefinitionNervous System PartWhere in the Nervous System
Breathing Control
P: Impulse moves toward cell body (hopping over myelin in PNS)
Fluid buildup on the brain due to failure of cerebrospinal fluid drainage
Rapid, predicatble and involuntary response to stimuli
D: change in polarity of cell membrane
R: charge on membrane returns to normal when K+ moves out of neuron
