The Nervous System At A Glance

  1. 1. The Nervous System at a Glance<br />Chapter 12<br />
  2. 2. THE NERVOUS SYSTEM: A system responsible for coordinating all the activity of the body.<br />THE BRAIN<br />THE SPINAL CORD<br />THE NERVES<br />THE SENSES<br />
  3. 3. CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM (CNS)PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM (PNS)<br />The Nervous System can be subdivided into the:<br />
  4. 4. CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM: Controls everything in the body.<br />The CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM is made of the brain and the spinal cord.<br />
  5. 5. THE BRAIN<br />Made up of more than 10 billion nerves.<br />An organ that controls your emotions, your thoughts and every movement you make.<br />Divided into four sections, but has (three) major parts and is protected by the skull.<br />
  6. 6. THE THREE MAJOR PARTS of the BRAIN<br />THE CEREBRUM<br />THE CEREBELLUM<br />THE BRAIN STEM<br />
  7. 7. THE CEREBRUM: largest part of the brain<br />The cerebrum controls:<br />Your thinking<br />Your Memory<br />Your Speaking<br />Your movement & identifies the information gathered by your sense organs.<br />
  8. 8. THE CEREBELLUM:Is below & to the back of the cerebrum<br />The cerebellum controls your :<br />BALANCE<br />&<br />POSTURE<br />
  9. 9. THE BRAIN STEM<br />Connects the brain to the spinal cord.<br />The nerves in the brain stem control your:<br />HEARTBEAT<br />BREATHING<br />BLOOD PRESSURE<br />
  10. 10. THE SPINAL CORD<br />The SPINAL CORD sends messages to the brain.<br />The SPINAL CORD is the part of the nervous system that connects the brain to the rest of the nervous system.<br />
  11. 11. THE OUTER NERVOUS SYSTEM<br />The OUTER NERVOUS SYSTEM is made of the nerves and the sense organs.<br /> NERVES SENSEORGANS<br />
  12. 12. ABOUT THE OUTER NERVOUS SYSTEM<br />Carries messages between the central nervous system and the rest of the body.<br />The OUTER NERVOUS SYSTEM’s job is to connect the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM to the rest of the body.<br />
  13. 13. VERY IMPORTANT INFO<br />Nerves send messages to everything from the brain. If there was no nervous system, you&apos;re heart wouldn&apos;t be told to beat, your legs wouldn&apos;t be told to walk and your lungs wouldn&apos;t be told to expand an, collapse.<br />Things wouldn&apos;t be able to send messages to the brain either, such as taste buds (no taste) skin, (no feeling,) eyes (no sight) and so on.<br />
