Biology 35.3

  1. 1. 35.3 Divisions of the Nervous System<br />
  2. 2. Meninges <br />Three layers of connective tissue in which the brain and spinal cord are wrapped.<br />
  3. 3. Cerebrospinal Fluid<br />Fluid in the space between the meninges that acts as a shock absorber that protects the central nervous system.<br />
  4. 4. Cerebrum <br />Area of the brain responsible for all voluntary activities of the body.<br />
  5. 5. Cerebellum<br />Region of the brain that coordinates body movements.<br />
  6. 6. Brain Stem<br />Structure that connects the brain and spinal cord; includes the medulla oblongata and the pons.<br />
  7. 7. Thalamus<br />Brain structure that receives messages from the sense organs and relays the information to the proper region of the cerebrum for further processing.<br />
  8. 8. Hypothalamus <br />Brain structure that acts as a control center for recognition and analysis of hunger, thirst, fatigue, anger, and body temperature.<br />
  9. 9. Reflex<br />Quick automatic response to a stimulus.<br />
  10. 10. Reflex Arc<br />Sensory receptor, sensory neuron, motor neuron, and effector that are involved in a quick response to a stimulus. <br />
  11. 11. Key Concept<br />The central nervous system relays messages, processes information, and analyzes information.<br />
  12. 12. Key Concept<br />The sensory division of the peripheral nervous system transmits impulses from sense organs to the central nervous system. The motor division transmits impulses from the central nervous system to the muscles or glands.<br />
