Nervous System

A system that controls all of the activities of the body.

The nervous system is made of:

The brain

The spinal cord

The nerves

The senses

neurons
Neurons
  • The functional and structural unit of the nervous system
  • Specialized to conduct information from one part of the body to another
  • There are many, many different types of neurons but most have certain structural and functional characteristics in common:
  • Cell body (soma)
  • One or more specialized, slender processes (axons/dendrites)
  • An input region (dendrites/soma)
  • A conducting component (axon)
  • A secretory (output) region (axon terminal)
slide6

The nervous system also allows you to react to a stimulus.

Stimulus

A stimulus is a change in the environment.

Example: A hot stove

Or… tripping over a rock

slide7

Your reactions are automatic.

Automatic

Automatic means that you do not have to think about your reactions.

Example: If a bug flies by your eye,

you will blink.

slide8

Brain

An organ that controls your emotions, your thoughts, and every movement you make.

slide9

Central Nervous System

The Central Nervous System is made of the brain and the spinal cord.

The Central Nervous System controls everything in the body.

slide10

Outer Nervous System

The Outer Nervous System is made of the nerves and the sense organs.

Nerves

Sense organs

slide11

Nerve Impulse

Messages carried throughout the body by nerves.

slide12

You have a nerve along your whole arm.

"Funny Bone"

The “funny bone” is the only place on the arm where the nerve is not protected.

The “funny bone” is on the elbow.

The Nervous System

The Central Nervous System

slide14

The Central Nervous System

* The Central Nervous System controls all of the body’s activities.

* The Central Nervous System is made of two main organs.

1. The brain

2. The spinal cord

slide15

The Spinal Cord

* The spinal cord sends messages to the brain.

* The spinal cord is the part of the nervous system that connects the brain to the rest of the nervous system.

slide16

The Brain

* The brain controls everything in the body.

* The brain is made of more than 10 billion nerves!

* The brain is divided into three parts and is protected by the skull.

slide17

The Three Parts of the Brain

* The Brain has three main parts…

1. The Cerebrum

2. The Cerebellum

3. The Brain Stem

slide18

The Cerebrum

* The Cerebrum is the largest part of the brain.

1. The cerebrum controls your thinking.

2. The cerebrum controls your memory.

3. The cerebrum controls your speaking.

4. The cerebrum controls your movement and identifies the information gathered by your sense organs.

slide19

The Cerebellum

* The cerebellum is below and to the back of the cerebrum.

1. The cerebellum controls you balance.

2. The cerebellum controls your posture.

slide20

The Brain Stem

* The Brain Stem connects the brain to the spinal cord.

* The nerves in the brain stem control your heartbeat, breathing, and blood pressure.

slide21

The Vertebrae

* The vertebrae are the many bones that protect the nerves in the spinal cord.

slide23

Outer Nervous System

* The outer nervous system carries messages between the central nervous system and the rest of the body.

* The Outer Nervous System’s job is to connect the Central Nervous System to the rest of the body.

slide24

Outer Nervous System

* The outer nervous system is made of the nerves and the sense organs.

Nerves

Eye

Skin

Ear

Tongue

slide25

Reflex

* An automatic reaction that happens without thinking about it.

* A reflex happens quickly in less than a second.

slide26

Automatic Nervous System

* The outer nervous system controls the body’s activities that you don’t think about.

* The outer nervous system controls activities in your small intestine, your breathing, and your heartbeat.

slide28

Sense Organs

Sense organs carry messages about the environment to the central nervous system.

slide29

Sense Organs

The eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and skin are examples of sense organs.

The sense organs gather information (light, sound, heat, and pressure) from the environment.

slide30

Environment

The environment is everything outside the body.

The sense organs gather information from outside the body, then send the messages to the brain.

slide31

Vision is your ability to see.

Vision

Vision involves the eye and the brain.

slide32

The Eye

The eye is one of your sense organs.

The eye is made of the iris and the pupil.

The eye gathers pictures and sends them to the brain.

slide33

The Parts of the Eye

The colored part of the eye is the iris.

The black part of the eye is the pupil.

The pupil becomes larger and smaller as it controls the light coming into the eye.

Iris

Pupil

slide34

When a sound is made, the air around the sound vibrates.

Hearing

Hearing starts when some of the sound waves go into the ear.

slide35

Parts of the Ear

There are nine main parts of the ear.

1. Pinna

5. Anvil

2. Ear canal

6. Stirrup

3. Ear drum

7. Cochlea

4. Hammer

8. Eustachian tube

9. Auditory nerve

slide36

Parts of the Ear

The pinna is the part of the ear that you can see.

The ear canal is the tube between the outside of the ear and the ear drum.

The ear drum is in the middle ear. It vibrates when sound waves hit it.

slide37

Parts of the Ear

The three smallest bones in the body, the hammer, the anvil, and the stirrup, are in the middle ear.

The hammer gets the vibrations from the eardrum, then sends them to the anvil.

The anvil passes the vibrations to the stirrup.

The stirrup passes the vibrations to the inner ear.

slide38

Parts of the Ear

The Eustachian tube controls the amount of pressure in the ear.

The inner ear is made of the cochlea and liquid.

The cochlea is in the inner ear. The cochlea looks like a shell.

The auditory nerve carries the hearing information to the brain and the brain tells us what we heard.

slide39

The Ear and Balance

The ear works with the brain to control your balance.

All of your movements are controlled by balance and muscles.

The liquid in your inner ear is responsible for your balance.

The liquid in your ear moves when we move. The liquid movement sends information to the brain to tell it how we are moving.

slide40

The sense of touch is located in the skin.

Touch

The nerves in the skin allow us to feel texture, pressure, heat, cold, and pain.

Texture is how something feels.

slide41

The nose controls your sense of smell.

Smell

The nose is able to smell 80 different kinds of smells.

slide42

Your sense of taste comes from the taste buds in the tongue.

Taste

Taste buds are the parts on the tongue that allow us to taste.

The four kinds of taste buds are sweet, sour, bitter, and salty.

slide43

Flavors

Tastes and smells work together to make flavors.

Flavors are the tastes of food and drinks.
