Chapter 1- The Body
I. What is Anatomy?
1. Anatomy is the study of the structure of the body. An understanding of anatomy allows the clinician to better appreciate a pathology and to interpret imaging.
a. Gross Anatomy- Macroscopic Structures (seen without a microscope).
nervous system- employs electrical and chemical means to send messages quickly from cell to cell
3 Basic Nervous System steps
1. through sense organs and simple sensory nerve endings, it receives info about changes in the body and the external environment and transmits coded messages to the CNS

surround the brain and spinalcord. They are, from the outermost to the innermost layers:
Dura mater—The dura mater is a tough, fibrous connective tissue layer containing many blood vessels and nerves. It functions as a protective layer, surrounding the brain and spinalcord.
daily life. If the students are to be efficient nurses, the student nurses should be educated in such matters.
Bipolar disorder is a recurrent illness that involves long-term, drastic changes in mood. A person with bipolar disorder experiences alternating highs (mania) and lows...
1. Where do neurons that secrete neurohormones terminate?
Neurons that secrete neurohormones terminate close to blood vessels so that the neurohormones can enter the circulation.
2. What is the difference between a nerve and a neuron?
A neuron is a single nerve cell. A nerve is a bundle...

B) receive inputs from a single type of sensory receptor
C) are involved in the emotional aspects of perception
D) are also called the lemniscal...
The Nervous System
November 7, 2012
1. What are the functions of the nervous system? Provide a few specific examples of how the NS contributes to the homeostasis of the organism.
There are three functions of the nervous system. Sensory input is when the nervous system uses a lot of sensory...
14: The Autonomic Nervous System
1. Define autonomic nervous system and explain its relationship to the peripheral nervous system.
2. Compare the somatic and autonomic nervous systems relative to effectors, efferent pathways, and neurotransmitters released.
Fundamentals of the Nervous System
CNS: consists of brain and spinalcord. It is the integration and control center. It interprets sensory input and dictates motor output

The Nervous System
The nervous system is commonly divided into the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system is made up of the brain, its cranial nerves and the spinalcord. The peripheral nervous system is composed of the spinal nerves...
