Nervous System

  1. 1. Nervous System
  2. 2. Central vs. Peripheral Nervous System <ul><li>1. Central Nervous System (CNS) : brain and spinal cord   </li></ul>
  3. 3. Central vs. Peripheral Nervous System <ul><li>  2. Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) : cranial nerves, spinal nerves and ganglia </li></ul><ul><ul><li>* ( Ganglion =group of neuron cell bodies located outside CNS) </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Sensory division vs. Motor division <ul><li>1. Sensory Division : receives information FROM body and transmits it TO the CNS for processing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a) Somatic Sensory component – receives sensory information from skin, joints, muscle, special senses </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>b) Visceral Sensory component – receives sensory info from blood vessels and viscera </li></ul></ul><ul><li>2. Motor Division : transmits info FROM the CNS TO muscles and glands </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a. Somatic motor component: innervates skeletal muscle </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>b. Autonomic motor (Autonomic Nervous System) : innervates smooth muscle, cardiac muscle, and glands of viscera (organs) </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. NERVOUS TISSUE CELLS <ul><li>A. Neurons : respond to stimuli and conduct nerve impulses </li></ul>
  6. 6. NERVOUS TISSUE CELLS <ul><li>B. Glial Cells: support and protect neurons (maintenance) </li></ul>
  7. 7. NEURON COMPOSITION (p 104) <ul><li>A. Cell Body : </li></ul><ul><li>    B. Nucleus : </li></ul><ul><li>    C. Dendrites :         </li></ul><ul><li>    D. Axon : </li></ul><ul><li>E. Synapse:         </li></ul>
  8. 8. NEURON CLASSIFICATION <ul><li>1. Sensory (Afferent) Neuron : brings information TO the CNS   </li></ul><ul><li>   2. Motor (Efferent) Neuron : takes information FROM CNS to other parts of the body, cell body located in CNS   </li></ul><ul><li>    3. Interneuron (Association Neurons) : helps coordinate and integrate info between sensory and motor neurons, cell body located in CNS </li></ul>
  9. 9. GLIAL CELLS - PNS <ul><li>A. Satellite Cells : surround neuron cell bodies in spinal ganglia         * ( Ganglion =group of neuron cell bodies located outside CNS) </li></ul><ul><li>  B. Schwann cells : myelinate axons in PNS   </li></ul>
  10. 10. Glial Cells - CNS <ul><li>C. Astrocytes : regulate transfer of materials from blood to the brain - help the workings of &quot;blood -brain barrier&quot;   </li></ul><ul><li>D. Oligodendrocytes : myelinate axons in CNS   </li></ul><ul><li>E. Microglia : phagocytize damaged neurons   </li></ul><ul><li>F. Ependymal Cells : line central canal and ventricles - help circulate cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)   </li></ul>
