  2. 2. Most Animals Have a Nervous System That Allows Responses to Stimuli
  3. 3. 26.1 Invertebrates reflect an evolutionary trend toward bilateral symmetry and cephalization <ul><li>Invertebrate Nervous Organization </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In simple animals, such as sponges, the most common observable response is closure of the osculum (central opening) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hydras (cnidarians) have a nerve net that is composed of neurons </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Planarians, (flatworms) have a ladderlike nervous system </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In annelids (earthworm), arthropods (crab), and molluscs (squid) the nervous system shows further advances </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Cephalization - concentration of ganglia and sensory receptors in a head region </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ganglion (pl. ganglia) - cluster of neurons </li></ul></ul>

  6. 6. Vertebrate Nervous Organization <ul><li>Cephalization, and bilateral symmetry, results in paired sensory receptors to gather information about environment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Eyes, ears, and olfactory structures </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Central nervous system (CNS) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Spinal cord and brain and develops from an embryonic dorsal neural tube </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ascending tracts carry sensory information to the brain, and descending tracts carry motor commands to the neurons in the spinal cord that control the muscles </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Vertebrate brain divided into three parts </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hindbrain - most ancient part and regulates motor activity below the level of consciousness </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Midbrain - optic lobes are part of the midbrain and was a center for coordinating reflexes involving the eyes and ears </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Forebrain - originally dealt mainly with smell. Later, the thalamus evolved to receive sensory input from the midbrain and the hindbrain and to pass it on to cerebrum </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Cerebrum integrates sensory and motor input and is particularly associated with higher mental capabilities </li></ul>

  8. 8. 26.2 Humans have well-developed central and peripheral nervous systems <ul><li>Peripheral nervous system (PNS) consists of all the nerves and ganglia that lie outside the CNS </li></ul><ul><ul><li>All signals that enter and leave the CNS travel through paired nerves </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Those connected to spinal cord are spinal nerves </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Those attached to brain are cranial nerves </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Somatic sensory axons (fibers) send signals from the skin and special sense organs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Visceral sensory fibers convey information from the internal organs </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CNS and PNS must work in harmony to carry out three primary functions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Receive sensory input </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Perform integration </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Generate motor output </li></ul></ul>

  10. 10. Neurons Process and Transmit Information
  11. 11. 26.3 Neurons are the functional units of a nervous system <ul><li>Neurons (nerve cells) receive sensory information and convey information to an integration center </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Three major parts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cell body - contains a nucleus and a variety of organelles </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dendrites - short, highly branched processes receive signals from sensory receptors or other neurons and transmit them to cell body </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Axon - portion of the neuron that conveys information to another neuron or to other cells </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Axons bundle together to form nerves and are often called nerve fibers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Axons are covered by a white insulating layer called the myelin sheath </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Neuroglia - cells that provide support and nourishment to the neurons </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Myelin sheath is formed from membranes of tightly spiraled neuroglia </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In PNS, Schwann cells perform this function, leaving gaps called nodes of Ranvier , or neurofibril nodes </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Types of Neurons <ul><li>Motor (efferent) neurons carry nerve impulses from CNS to muscles or glands </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Have many dendrites and a single axon </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cause muscle to contract or glands to secrete </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Sensory (afferent) neurons take nerve impulses from sensory receptors to the CNS </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sensory receptors may be the end of a sensory neuron itself (a pain or touch receptor), or may be a specialized cell that forms a synapse with a sensory neuron </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Interneurons (association neurons) occur entirely within the CNS </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Parallel the structure of motor neurons and convey nerve impulses between various parts of the CNS </li></ul></ul>

  15. 15. Figure 26.3C Interneuron
  16. 16. 26.4 Neurons have a resting potential across their membranes when they are not active <ul><li>Voltage, in millivolts (mV), is a measure of the electrical potential difference between two points </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In the case of a neuron, the two points are the inside and the outside of the axon </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Membrane potential - w hen an electrical potential difference exists between the inside and outside of a cell </li></ul><ul><li>When a neuron is not conducting an impulse, its resting potential is about −65 mV </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Negative sign indicates that the inside of the cell is more negative than the outside </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Potential is created by an unequal distribution of ions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Due to the activity of the sodium-potassium pump, which moves three sodium ions (Na + ) out of the neuron for every two potassium ions (K + ), it moves into the neuron </li></ul></ul>
  17. 17. Figure 26.4 Resting potential: More Na + outside the axon and more K + inside the axon. Inside is −65 mV, relative to the outside
  18. 18. 26.5 Neurons have an action potential across axon membranes when they are active <ul><li>Action potential - rapid change in polarity across axonal membrane as nerve impulse occurs </li></ul><ul><li>An action potential uses two types of gated ion channels in the axon membrane </li></ul><ul><ul><li>First, a gated ion channel allows sodium (Na + ) to pass into the axon </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Another gated ion channel allows potassium (K + ) to pass out of the axon </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If a stimulus causes the axon membrane to depolarize to threshold , an action potential occurs in an all-or-none manner </li></ul>
  19. 19. Figure 26.5A An action potential can be visualized as voltage changes over time
  20. 20. Depolarization and Repolarization <ul><li>Sodium Gates Open </li></ul><ul><ul><li>When an action potential begins, the gates of the sodium channels open, and Na + flows into the axon </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Membrane potential changes from −65 mV to +40 mV </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Called depolarization because inside axon changes from negative to positive </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Potassium Gates Open </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Gates of potassium channels open, and K + flows out of axon </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Action potential changes from +40 mV back to −65 mV </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Called repolarization because inside of axon becomes negative again as K + exits the axon </li></ul></ul>
  21. 21. Figure 26.5B Action potential begins: Depolarization to +40 mV as Na + gates open and Na + moves to inside the axon
  22. 22. Figure 26.5C Action potential ends: Repolarization to −65 mV as K + gates open and K + moves to outside the axon
  23. 23. 26.6 Propagation of an action potential is speedy <ul><li>In nonmyelinated axons, action potential travels down an axon one section at a time, at a speed of about 1 m/second </li></ul><ul><ul><li>As soon as an action potential has moved on, the previous section undergoes a refractory period , during which the Na + gates are unable to open </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The action potential cannot move backward and instead always moves down an axon toward its terminals </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>After refractory period, the sodium potassium pump restores the previous ion distribution by pumping Na + to outside the axon and K + to inside the axon </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In myelinated axons, gated ion channels that produce action potential are concentrated at the nodes of Ranvier </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ion exchange only at the nodes makes the action potential travel faster in nonmyelinated axons called saltatory conduction </li></ul></ul>
  24. 24. Figure 26.6 Saltatory conduction
  25. 25. 26.7 Communication between neurons occurs at synapses <ul><li>Every axon branches into many fine endings, tipped by a small swelling, called an axon terminal </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Each terminal lies very close to the dendrite (or the cell body) of another neuron </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Region of close proximity is called a synapse </li></ul><ul><ul><li>At synapse, membrane of first neuron is pre synaptic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The membrane of the next neuron is the post synaptic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Small gap between the neurons is the synaptic cleft </li></ul></ul><ul><li>A nerve impulse cannot cross a synaptic cleft </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Transmission across a synapse is carried out by molecules called neurotransmitters , which are stored in synaptic vesicles </li></ul></ul>
  26. 26. Figure 26.7 Synapse structure and function
  27. 27. 26.8 Neurotransmitters can be stimulatory or inhibitory <ul><li>Acetylcholine (ACh) and norepinephrine (NE) are well-known neurotransmitters in both the CNS and the PNS </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In the PNS, ACh excites skeletal muscle but inhibits cardiac muscle </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ACh has either an excitatory or inhibitory effect on smooth muscle or glands </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In the CNS, NE is important to dreaming, waking, and mood </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Serotonin, another neurotransmitter, is involved in thermoregulation, sleeping, emotions, and perception </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Clearing of Neurotransmitter from a Synapse </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Once a neurotransmitter has been released into a synaptic cleft and has initiated a response, it is removed from the cleft </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Short existence of neurotransmitters at a synapse prevents continuous stimulation (or inhibition) of postsynaptic membranes </li></ul></ul>
  28. 28. 26.9 Integration is a summing up of stimulatory and inhibitory signals <ul><li>A single neuron can have many synapses all over its dendrites and the cell body </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A neuron is on the receiving end of many excitatory and inhibitory signals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>An excitatory neurotransmitter produces a signal that drives the neuron closer to threshold </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>An inhibitory neurotransmitter produces a signal that drives the neuron further from threshold </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Integration is the summing up of excitatory and inhibitory signals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If a neuron receives many excitatory signals the axon will transmit a nerve impulse </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If a neuron receives both inhibitory and excitatory signals, the summing up of these signals may prohibit the axon from reaching threshold and firing </li></ul></ul>
