Transcript of Nervous System
basic building block of the nervous system, specialized to transmit information throughout the body.
along which impulses received from other cells at synapses are transmitted to the cell body.
Cell Body (Soma)
is the bulbous end of a neuron, containing the cell nucleus
It contains most of the cell's genetic material
the long threadlike part of a nerve cell along which impulses are conducted from the cell body to other cells.
mixture of proteins and phospholipids forming a whitish insulating sheath around many nerve fibers, increasing the speed at which impulses are conducted.
granules are rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) with rosettes of free ribosomes, and are the site of protein synthesis
is the last site in the soma where membrane potentials propagated from synaptic inputs are summated before being transmitted to the axon
In the central nervous system, a collection of neuron cell bodies is called a nucleus.
In the peripheral nervous system, a collection of neuron cell bodies is called a ganglion (plural: ganglia).
Nuclei Vs. Ganglia
Tract Vs. Nerve
Tracts are bundles of axons in the Central Nervous System.
Nerves are bundles of axons in the Peripheral Nervous System.
non-neuronal cells that maintain homeostasis, form myelin, and provide support and protection for neurons in the brain and peripheral nervous system.
CLASSIFICATION OF NEURONS
a neuron conducting impulses inwards to the brain or spinal cord
a nerve cell forming part of a pathway along which impulses pass from the brain or spinal cord to a muscle or gland
is a neuron that forms a connection between other neurons.
Classification of Nerves
a nerve that passes impulses from receptors toward or to the central nervous system,
a nerve that conveys impulses toward or to muscles or glands
A nerve that contains both motor and sensory nerve fibers.
