Transcript of The Nervous System

The Nervous System The central nervous system consists of
the brain
the spinal cord The Brain is divided into several different lobes
and each has its own special jobs to do.
The frontal lobe
The parietal lobe
The Occiptal lobe
The temporal lobe
The Cerebellum
The Brain Stem Your Nervous System is made up of billions of neurons which carry electrical impulses throughout your body telling your body what to do. First your sensory neurons recognize a stimulus or a change in the enviorment, next they send those impulses to interneurons in the Brain. Lastly your interneurons send impulses to your motor neurons, which tell your muscels how to move, telling themm how to respond to the stimulus. Your Nervous system is made up of 2 main parts, the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous sytem. Your Central Nervous system recives data from the periperipheral nervous system, responds to that data, and maintains homeostasis. The Brain controls all of your body's systems and it is located in the skull. The Spinal Cord is a thick column of nervous tissue that links the brain to the peripheral nervous system. Recieves electrical impulses and sends them to Cell Boby. Sends impulses to Axon. Carries impulses to axon terminals. Gap between neurons. Releases chemicals that carry electrical impulses across the synapse to the next neuron. Cerbellum The Frontal Lobe controls
Controls impulses
Controls judgment
Language production
Working memory
Motor function
creating memory
Problem solving
Executing behavior
The Occipital Lobe controls
vision Brain Stem The Temporal Lobe controls
The Parietal Lobe controls
information from senses
The Occipital Lobe controls
The Cerebellum controls
voluntary motor movements The Brain Stem controls
body's vital functions
involuntary functions The spinal cord connects the peripheral nervous system to the brain. It is located down the back of your spine. If the spinal cord is damaged it will result in paralysis from where it was severed down. Spinal cord The spinal cord is like a two way highway, it carries impulses to and from your Brain. The Peripheral Nervous system is made up of all of the other neurons inside of your body that send and recive impulses from the brain.These neurons allow you to
feel, smell, taste, smell, and hear. Sight allows us to see all of the colors and shapes that we see everyday. Hearing allows us to be able to hear all of the sound we hear everyday. By: Daniel M Our sense of feeling allow us to feel different textures and surfaces. The sense of taste and smell are closely related, without your sense of smell you would have alot of difficulty tasting anything. The End
