Three Classes of neurons <ul><li>The Neural circuit consists of </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sensory neurons </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>receptor for stimulus </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interneuron </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>integrate signals </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Motor neuron </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>transfer signal to effector (muscle) </li></ul></ul></ul>
    • 4.  
    • 5. Anatomy of a Neuron <ul><li>Cell body: functional portion </li></ul><ul><li>Dendrites: short extensions that receive signals </li></ul><ul><li>Axon: long extension that transmits impulses </li></ul>
    • 6. How does a neuron hold and move info? <ul><li>A neuron at rest has a voltage difference across the plasma membrane called a resting voltage potential </li></ul><ul><li>An action potential is when this charge across the membrane is briefly switched </li></ul><ul><li>The action potential moves down the membrane at a rapid pace. </li></ul><ul><li>Ap can move faster over mylenated portions is called saltatory conduction </li></ul>
    • 7.  
    • 8.  
    • 9. How does a signal move from one neuron to another? <ul><li>A synaptic cleft divides 2 neurons </li></ul><ul><li>The AP will not move across the synaptic cleft </li></ul><ul><li>Neuro transmitters are released by the signal cell to the receiver cell </li></ul><ul><li>Move by diffusion </li></ul>
    • 10. Types of chemical synapse <ul><li>Acetylcholine: neuromuscular junctions, glands, brain and spinal cord </li></ul><ul><li>Norepinepherine: affects brain regions concerned with emotions, dreaming </li></ul>
    • 11.  
    • 12. Paths of information flow <ul><li>Signals between the brain and spinal cord move to the body regions by nerves </li></ul><ul><li>Sensory nerves move a signal towards the brain and spinal cord </li></ul><ul><li>Motor neurons move a signal from the brain or spinal cord to the body </li></ul>
    • 13. Divisions of the nervous System <ul><li>Central nervous system </li></ul><ul><li>CNS </li></ul><ul><li>Is the brain and spinal cord </li></ul><ul><li>Peripheral nervous system </li></ul><ul><li>PNS </li></ul><ul><li>all nerves that carry signals to and from the CNS </li></ul>
    • 14. Parts of the PNS <ul><li>Sensory Division carries info to the brain and spinal cord. </li></ul><ul><li>Motor Division carries info from the brain to the bodies effectors (things that do the work) </li></ul>
    • 15. The Motor division of the PNS has 2 divisions <ul><li>Somatic nerves relay commands to and from skeletal muscle </li></ul><ul><li>Voluntary control </li></ul><ul><li>Autonomic nerves send signals to and from smooth muscles </li></ul><ul><li>Involuntary control </li></ul><ul><li>Sympathetic </li></ul><ul><li>Parasympathetic </li></ul>

    • 30. Sensory Pathways <ul><li>If a receptor is stimulated enough it results in an action potential. </li></ul><ul><li>The action potential reaches the brain. </li></ul><ul><li>The stronger the stimulus the greater number of action potentials reach the brain. </li></ul><ul><li>Sensory adaptation is when the action potentials are reduced by a constant stimulus. </li></ul><ul><li>Certain receptors will not adapt. </li></ul>
    • 31. Somatic sensations <ul><li>Touch & Pressure </li></ul><ul><li>Temperature </li></ul><ul><li>Pain </li></ul><ul><li>Muscle sense </li></ul><ul><li>Mechanoreceptors that respond to changes or constant pressure </li></ul><ul><li>Increase in temperature causes and increase in AP </li></ul><ul><li>Respond to intense stimulus on other receptors, cannot be ignored </li></ul><ul><li>Mechanoreceptors give measurement as to the location of all the muscles and bones in a given moment. </li></ul>

    • 41. The Eye
    • 42. Structure of the eye <ul><li>Outer sclera (white) (is all the way around) </li></ul><ul><li>Cornea (clear) </li></ul><ul><li>Pupil (opening to the back) </li></ul><ul><li>Lens (transparent) </li></ul><ul><li>Retina (back side has photoreceptors and support material) </li></ul><ul><li>Fovea has highest concentration of photoreceptors. </li></ul>
    • 43. Regulating light amount <ul><li>The iris adjusts to amount of light entering the eye. </li></ul><ul><li>The lens goes through accommodation to adjust lens curvature (as we age the lens cannot buldge enough to focus on a close object) </li></ul>
    • 44. Light must reach the sensors by going through neurons. <ul><li>Outermost layer is pigmented to absorb light not absorbed by the sensors </li></ul><ul><li>Photoreceptors are in middle layer </li></ul><ul><li>Translucent neurons and ganglions are on top of the photoreceptors. </li></ul>
    • 45. Production of Action Potentials by Rods and Cones <ul><li>Within these cells flattened disks contain photopigment </li></ul><ul><li>When this protein absorbs light it changes conformation, if enough are activated they cause an action potential. </li></ul><ul><li>Rods contain rhodopsin and are most sensitive to dim light </li></ul><ul><li>Cones contain different pigments </li></ul>
    • 46. Rods and Cones <ul><li>Bright light tends to use more cones, 300x more sensitive </li></ul><ul><li>Dim light uses Rods and Rhodopsin, it is broken apart by light and must be remade (hence the 5-10 minute wait to see in darker areas) </li></ul>
    • 47. Signaling to visual perception <ul><li>Photoreceptors are in the retina </li></ul><ul><li>When rods or cones are stimulated they send a signal to the brains visual cortex. </li></ul><ul><li>In the brain the final interpretation makes sense of sight </li></ul>
    • 48. Problems with the Eyes <ul><li>Retinal detachment: retina separates form choroid </li></ul><ul><li>Cataracts: lens becomes opaque </li></ul><ul><li>Color blindness: Inability to distinguish colors, is a genetic disease, lacks specific types of cones </li></ul>
    • 49.  
    • 50. The Endocrine system The oldest method of control is using a signal molecule that moves from one part of the body to the other

Hormones and other signal molecules <ul><li>Hormones : molecules secreted by glands into the blood that move to a nonadjacent target </li></ul><ul><li>Neurotransmitters : act on a directly adjacent cell </li></ul><ul><li>Local signaling molecule : act quickly and degrade quickly </li></ul><ul><li>Pheromones : secreted by glands and target cells in other organisms </li></ul>
    • 54. Signaling Mechanisms <ul><li>Requirements </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cells that secrete the signal molecule are either within a gland or nervous tissue </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The signal molecule </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Steroid hormone (fat soluble will move through the plasma membrane) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Non steroid hormone (peptides and other molecules must bind to a receptor on the cell) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Target cell </li></ul></ul>
    • 55. Target cell activities <ul><li>Different hormones activate different cellular response mechanisms </li></ul><ul><li>No all cells have receptors for all hormones: </li></ul>Three possible hormones A cell with a single receptor on it Does not bind, No reaction Good fit rx occurs
    • 56. Characteristics of the Endocrine system <ul><li>Each hormone acts only on certain cells </li></ul><ul><li>Cells respond only when they have receptors </li></ul><ul><li>Is slower than nervous system control </li></ul><ul><li>Endocrine and nervous system to interact with one another. </li></ul>
    • 57. Interaction of Endocrine System and Nervous System
    • 58.  
    • 59. Negative Control using Hormones

    • 61. Bracketing using hormones
    • 62. Regulation of Blood Calcium concentration <ul><li>Increase Calcium </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Parathyroid Hormone: removes calcium and phosphate from bone, increase absorption, retention of calcium in kidneys </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Decrease of Calcium </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Calcitonin </li></ul></ul>
    • 63.  
    • 64.  
    • 65. Oxytocin and nursing, a cascade of events <ul><li>At the end of pregnancy, Estrogen rise. </li></ul><ul><li>Uterus produces more oxytocin receptors </li></ul><ul><li>Fetus produces oxytocin, starts a cycle of material production of oxytocin </li></ul><ul><li>Oxytocin is a part of the neuroendocrine reflexes and will help in the smooth muscle contractions which cause the release of milk. </li></ul>
