• The Central Nervous System (CNS)The CNS has two major structures the brain and the spinal cord. • The brain is protected by the cranial cavity and the spinal cord is surrounded by the spinal cavity in the vertebral column. • They are both covered by protective membranes called meninges. • Question(s): What are the two major structures of the CNS? • What are these structures protected by?
• The brainstem is the most inferior portion of the brain. It is composedThe CNS of the following sections: • Medulla Oblongata • Pons • Midbrain • The lowest part of the brainstem is the medulla oblongata. • It is an enlarged extension of the spinal cord. It lies inside the cranial cavity above the foramen magnum. • The medulla consists of gray and white matter mixing to form the reticular formation. • Question: What are the three parts of the brainstem?
• In the spinal cord, gray and white matter do not mix. The core of the cordThe CNS is gray and the white matter surrounds it. • The pons and the midbrain consists of white matter and scattered bits of gray matter. • All three parts of the brainstem function as two way conduction paths. • Sensory fibers conduct impulses up from the cord to other parts of the brain. • Motor fibers conduct impulses down from the brain to the cord. • Question: What are the functions of Sensory and motor fibers within the CNS?
• Many important reflex centers areThe CNS located within the brainstem. • Cardiac • Respiratory • Vasomotor • Collectively these centers are called vital centers and are located within the brainstem. • Impulse from these centers control heart beat, respiration, and blood vessel diameter – regulates blood pressure. • Question: What reflex centers make up vital centers in the brain?
1. What are the two major components of the CNS? 2. What membrane is responsible forThe CNS Review 02/04 protecting both the brain and spinal cord? 3. What is the most inferior portion of the brain called? 4. What are the three parts to the most inferior portion of the brain? 5. Just above what cranial structure does the medulla oblongata lie? 6. What does the reticular formation consist of? 7. What function do all three parts of the brainstem serve as? 8. What are the functions of sensory and motor fibers within the CNS? * You may select one of the above questions as an exit ticket question.
• The cerebellum is the second largest part of the human brain.The CNS • It is located under the occipital lobe of the cerebrum. • The thin, folded outer layer forms a large surface area and is composed of gray matter. • White matter forms most of the interior portion of the cerebellum. The white matter tracts form a tree-like pattern called the arbor vitae. • Functions of the cerebellum are: • smooth, coordinated movements, maintain equilibrium, and sustain normal posture. • It also may play a role in an overall coordinating function of the entire brain. • Question: What is the second largest part of the brain?
• The diencephalon is a small, important region of the brain. It is locatedThe CNS between the midbrain and the cerebrum. • The diencephalon consists of three major structures: • Hypothalamus • Thalamus • Pineal gland • The hypothalamus is located below the thalamus. • The pituitary gland and the walls of the third ventricle are extensions of the hypothalamus. • Question: What are the three major parts of the diencephalon?
• The hypothalamus is one of the most important brain structures.The CNS • The hypothalamus controls virtually all internal organs. • The hypothalamus controls: • Heartbeat • Constriction and dilation of blood vessels. • Contraction of the stomach and intestines • Body temperature • Sleep cycles • Appetite and emotions • Some neurons of the hypothalamus function to make hormones that the posterior pituitary secretes into the blood. One of these hormones is called ADH (antidiuretic hormone) which affects the volume of urine excreted. • Question: What is the name of one of the hormones released by the hypothalamus?
• Some of the neurons of theThe CNS hypothalamus function as glands. • Their axons secrete chemical releasing hormones into the blood. • These hormones then cause other hormones to be released by the anterior pituitary gland. • This action influences the hormone secretion of other endocrine glands. • The hypothalamus indirectly helps to control every cell in the body. • Question: What are the functions of chemical releasing hormones?

• The thalamus is located just aboveThe CNS the hypothalamus. • It is a dumbbell –shaped section of gray matter. • Each end of the dumbbell lies in a lateral wall of a fluid filled chamber called the third-ventricle. • The thalamus is composed of dendrites and cell bodies of neurons that have axons extending up toward sensory areas of the cerebrum.
• The functions of the thalamus include:The CNS • Producing sensations • Associates sensations with emotions • The pineal gland: Located posterior to the thalamus protruding from the back of the diencephalon. • Receives information about the strength of light seen by the eyes and adjusts its output with the hormone melatonin • Melatonin helps to keep the body’s clock on time with daily, monthly and seasonal cycles of sunlight and moonlight.
• The cerebrum is the largest portionThe CNS of the brain. • It contains many convolutions (gyri) and grooves called sulci. • The deepest sulci are called fissures • Fissures divide the cerebrum into right and left hemispheres.
