  • Nervous System

    Nervous systems consists of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system (cranial and spinal nerves) Brain is divided into 3 major areas 1. Cerebrum Pairs of lobes 2. Brain stem 3. Cerebellum Four lobes are: Frontal-largest lobe‚ concentration‚ abstract thought‚ information storage‚ memory and motor function‚ Broca’s area (motor control of speech)‚ affect‚ judgement‚ personality and inhibitions Parietal- sensory lobe‚ analyzes sensory information

    NERVOUS SYSTEM The human body’s activities are regulated by two systems – the nervous system and the endocrine system. Although both systems control body functions‚ their methods differ. The nervous system is the body’s information gatherer‚ storage center and control system. Its primary function is to collect information about the external conditions in relation to the body’s external state‚ to analyze this information‚ and to initiate appropriate responses to satisfy certain needs; the most

    Neurons and nervous systems Communication around the body Neurons - the basic building blocks of the nervous system‚ soecialised to communicate info around the body Three different types of neurons sensory neurons (afferent) : transfer info from the body to the brain Motor neurons (efferent) : transmit info from brain to the body Interneurins : communication b/w sensory and motor neurons Structure communication with a neuron Communication within neurons is an electrochemical process

    -We have 2 parts in our nervous system: The central nervous system (CNS) is the nerves in our brain and spinal chord. The peripheral nervous system (PNS) is a network of nerve cells in the rest of our body. -Our nervous system detects stimuli and allows us to react to them. -Stimulus: a change‚ action or occurrence in the environment that can cause an organism to respond. Eg. Light‚ noise‚ pressure… How do we detect stimuli? -We have sensory organs that detect particular stimuli eg. Skin What

    Nervous System Review Sheet 1. List three functions of the nervous system and give a specific example of each. • Reception of stimuli from environment (internal or external) and relay of info to CNS (Sensory division of PNS) – e.g. Receptors in your ear send a signal to the brain when the bell rings. • Integration of stimuli to decide on a response (CNS) – e.g. Your brain receives the signal that the bell is ringing‚ along with signals from your eyes that tell you it is time for class

    The Nervous System The nervous system is the most complex part of the body‚ as they govern our thoughts‚ feelings‚ and bodily functions. It is an important factor in science because it can lead to new discoveries for cures or diseases. The studies of the nervous system helped lower death rates from heart disease‚ stroke‚ accidents‚ etc. The nervous system is a network of neurons (nerve cells) that that sends information to the brain to be analyzed. Neurons live both in and outside the central nervous

Unit 1- Maintaining Dynamic Equilibrium II Ch. 12 – The Nervous System (pp. 390-419) 12.1 – Structure of the Nervous System nervous system: a high-speed communication system which delivers information to and from the brain and spinal cord and all over the body. In any nervous system‚ there are 4 main components: (1) sensors: gather information from the external environment (sense organs) (2) conductors: carry information from sensors to modulators or from modulators to effectors (nerves)
