  1. 1. THE NERVOUS SYSTEM By : Cassie Turkstra Grade: 5 School: Fessenden
  2. 2. Major Organs <ul><li>The Spinal Cord </li></ul><ul><li>The brain </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Brain <ul><li>Structure – The brain is a pink jelly-like organ that is folded in half to make sure it can fit properly inside your head. </li></ul><ul><li>Function – The brain is the most important organ and it controls everything in your body with electrical impulses such as body temperature and heart rate. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Spinal Cord <ul><li>Structure –The spinal cord is a bundle of nerve fibres ( technically called axons.) </li></ul><ul><li>Function –The spinal cord is basically the “information high way of the body&quot;, messages are sent back and forth between the brain and the rest of your body. For example touch, temperature and signals that tell your muscles to move </li></ul>
  5. 5. Hair Follicles <ul><li>Structure - A group of epidermal cells at the base of a tube like depression. </li></ul><ul><li>Function –They make goose bumps. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Facial Nerves <ul><li>Function - it is the seventh cranial nerve and it performs both motor and sensory functions. </li></ul><ul><li>Structure - begins in the brain stem and branches out into the face ,neck, salivary, glands and outer ear. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Relationships with other Systems <ul><li>Relates to the muscular system because the nerves send messages to the muscles to tell you if something hurt or is wrong and hurt in your body. </li></ul><ul><li>In the cardiovascular system the nervous system modulates heart rate,contrractile strength and vascular tone </li></ul><ul><li>-muscular system hand. -cardio </li></ul><ul><li>system </li></ul>

  10. 10. Common Diseases <ul><li>Spinal Diastrophisms –mostly from development of the spinal cord. </li></ul><ul><li>Epilepsy –comes from recurring seizures in an individual. </li></ul><ul><li>Degenerative spine disease –occurs over time . </li></ul>
  11. 11. Interesting Facts <ul><li>Millions of nerve cells in the human body. </li></ul><ul><li>A gown mans brain would way up to 1375 will a woman would come to 1275 grams on average. </li></ul><ul><li>The human spinal cord contains to around 13,500,000 neurons. </li></ul><ul><li>The right side of the brain controls the left side of the body and the left side of the brain controls the right side of the body. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Interesting Facts <ul><li>the nervous system tells the brain when you hurt of have pain. </li></ul><ul><li>As we grow older the brain loses a gram each year. </li></ul><ul><li>The brain is responsible for a lot of things like emotions. </li></ul><ul><li>The brain also controls pain and pressure. </li></ul>
