  3. autonomic:
    involuntary muscles
  4. somatic:
    Voluntary muscles
  5. PNS:
    • Cranial nerves 12
    • Spinal nerves 31
    • Pathways: afferent(ascending) sensory carry nerve impulses form sensory spots torward the CNS.
    • Efferent: (descending)- motor carry sway from brain and spinal cord
  6. Cells of the NS:
    • Neuron: single unit it has dendrites- receptor arms of the neuron
    • axon: delivery arm of the neuron

    2. Glia- supportive cell to neurons create the myeline sheaths
  7. Neurons:
    • Cell body soma: evaluate/process mainly in the cns.
    • Dendrite: receive, receptive portion of the neuron
    • Axon: carries nerve impulses away from the cell body, one per neuron
  8. Axon hillock:
    Action potential begins here,
  9. Myelin:
    insulated layer of wrapped lipids, higher speed of conduction.
  10. Neurons functional classifications'
    • Sensory: afferent to the CNS
    • Associational: interneurons sensory to motor
    • Motor: Away from CNS to effector organ Efferent
  11. Nueroglia: Oligodendrocytes
    Jelly bean producer in CNS make myelin.
  12. Schwann Cell:
    Myelin in the PNS
  13. Ependymal Cells:
    make choroid plexus produce C.S. fluid= oxygen fuel(glucose)
  14. Astrocytes:
    Make B.B.B. blood brain barrier that filtrates circulating blood from the extracellular fluid in the CNS system, it is formed by capillary endothelial cells, which are connected by ight junctions
  15. Microglia:
    macrophage that lives in the CNS. Phagocytose only immunological cells allowed in the brain.
  16. BBB
    tight web of astrocytes around the brain capillaries that for the bbb. Selectivity only certain things can get in your brain.
  17. Action Potential:
    • neurons generate and conduct electrical impulses by changing the electrochemistry of their membranes AP.
    • -influence other nearby neurons and cells by the release of chemicals neurotransmitters.
  18. Resting potential:
    inside of the cell high in K outside of the cell high in NA++
  19. Depolarization:
    it goes from high to low through facilitated transport of NA++ in the cell.
  20. Repolarization:
    Facilitated transporter of K out of the cell
  21. Refractory period:
    is when everything has to get moved back to where it was ATP so K in and Na++ out.
  22. Synapses:
    Region between adjacent neurons synapse cleft, impulses are transmitted across the synapse by neurotransmitters. ACH first neurotrasnmitters acytocholine
  23. Meninges:
    • protective membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord.
    • Dura mater: external¬†responsible for keeping in the cerebrospinal fluid
    • Arachnoid: csf circulates through here
    • Pia mater: thin fibrous tissue enclose csf it allows blood vessels to nourish the brain , when this gets inflamed it is called meningitis.
  24. CSF:
    Produced by the choroid plexus(ependymal cells) within the ventricles, reabsorbed through the arachnoid villi, hydrocephalis is too much csf
  25. Brain:

  32. Cranial nerves:
    some say marry money but my brother says big brains matter most
  33. Reflex:
    • 1.afferent neuron
    • 2.interneuron

  35. Dorsal nerve route:
    afferent sensation= sensory(dermatomes)-skin
  36. Ventral nerve root:
    efferent motor control(myotomes)-muscle
  37. Autonomic PNS:
    • involuntary control;
    • sympathetic: flight or fight
    • parasympathetic: rest
  38. Flight or fight
    • accelerates HR
    • constricts smooth muscle-gut
    • dilates blood vessel to skeletal muscles
    • dilation of pupils
    • increases epinephrine, sweat and slows down digestion parapalsis
  39. Rest
    • slows HB
    • increases peristalsis
    • increases secretion of digestive enzymes
    • acetycholine
  40. Somatic
    Voluntary control of the motor nerves
  41. Nerve injury and regeneration:
    • -limited to myelinated axons
    • -PNS schwann cells heal better

    least pathological, dementia, difficulty in using the correct names for particular objects, people, places, or events
  65. Expressive aphasia:Broca's
