The Nervous System

  1. 1. Regulation:The Nervous System Class Notes September 26, 2007
  2. 2. What are the parts of the Nervous System? The nervous system plays a major role in regulation. Nervous System Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) Central Nervous System (CNS) Nerves or Neurons Brain Spinal Cord
  3. 3. PNS: Nerve cell or Neuron
  4. 4. Nerves <ul><li>Nerves: bundles of neurons </li></ul><ul><li>4 types of neurons: </li></ul><ul><li>- Sensory Neurons </li></ul><ul><li>- Motor Neurons </li></ul><ul><li>- Mixed nerves </li></ul><ul><li>- Interneurons </li></ul>
  5. 5. CNS: This is your Brain <ul><li>Cerebrum: 4 lobes </li></ul><ul><li>Cerebellum: balance and coordination </li></ul><ul><li>Medulla: involuntary functions (e.g. heartbeat) </li></ul><ul><li>Brainstem: regulates basic functions </li></ul>
  6. 6. This is Homer’s Brain
  7. 7. CNS: Spinal Cord <ul><li>Mass of nerve cells protected by bones called vertebrae </li></ul><ul><li>Part of the CNS </li></ul><ul><li>Relays impulses to the brain </li></ul>
  8. 8. Nerve Regulation: What happened during the water lab? <ul><li>Stimulus: a specific change in the environment that affects the nervous system (ex: change in water temp) </li></ul><ul><li>Impulse: electrical or chemical message that is carried by nerve cells; sent to CNS to interpret message (ex: message was carried to the brain through nerve impulses) </li></ul><ul><li>Response: reaction to the stimulus (ex: cold water feeling hot and hot water feeling cold when placed in med temp) </li></ul>
