Nervous System Presentation
Transcript of Nervous System Presentation
Central Nervous System (CNS): includes the brain and the spinal cord. Its the processing center of the brain
Peripheral Nervous System: includes Sensory, Motor, Somatic, and the Autonomic nervous systems. This connects the CNS to the rest of the body. What is it? Vascular Disorder- Stroke: This happens when blood flow to a part of the brain stops. A stroke is sometimes called a "brain attack."
Infection- Meningitis: Inflammation of the meninges caused by viral or bacterial infection.
Structural Disorder- Bells Palsy: Paralysis of the facial nerve, causing muscular weakness in one side of the face.
Functional Disorder- Epilepsy: A brain disorder in which a person has repeated seizures (convulsions) over time. Seizures are episodes of disturbed brain activity that cause changes in attention or behavior.
Degeneration- Alzheimer's: Progressive mental deterioration occurring in middle or old age, due to generalized degeneration of the brain. Having a better understanding of the nervous system will give a medical a assistant a better understanding of disorders associated with it and therefore giving them the knowledge to provide the best possible care for the patients. http://biology.about.com/od/organsystems/a/aa061804a.htm http://medicalcenter.osu.edu/patientcare/healthcare_services/nervous_system/Pages/index.aspx Sensory Nervous System - sends information to the CNS from internal organs or from external stimuli.
Motor Nervous System - carries information from the CNS to organs, muscles, and glands.
Somatic Nervous System - controls skeletal muscle as well as external sensory organs.
Autonomic Nervous System - controls involuntary muscles, such as smooth and cardiac muscle. The Nervous system is responsible for regulating and coordinating the body's basic functions. What does it do? It's a complex network of neurotransmitters that carry "messages" or electrical impulses throughout the body http://users.rcn.com/jkimball.ma.ultranet/BiologyPages/P/PNS.html http://library.thinkquest.org/26618/en-2.1.1=The%20human%20nervous%20system.htm
