Human Body: NERVOUS SYSTEM

BrainDiencephalonSpinal CordNerve


Human body nervous system

Nervous system = master control and communication

Three functions:

1. Gathering Sensory input (information about stimuli).

  • Integration (interpretation and decision-making about the stimuli).

!

3. Effects a response – motor output.

Supporting the CNS:

Microglia found within the central nervous system are similar to macrophages.

Nervous Tissue


Human body nervous system

Supporting the CNS:

Extensions from the oligodendrocyte form the myelin sheaths of axons within the central nervous system.

Human body nervous system

The Nerve Impulse

  • Major functional properties:

  • Irritability

  • …ability to respond to stimuli

I am irritable! And…You are getting on my very last nerve!


Human body nervous system

Conductivity…ability to conduct electrical currents

  • Resting membrane –

    • Na+ and K+ levels are equal

Neurotransmitter_Synapse_3D_Animation


Human body nervous system

  • Stimulation of Muscles:

  • An action potential arrives at a presynaptic terminal.

  • The Calcium ion channel opens releasing calcium ions into the presynaptic terminal.

  • Calcium ions cause the synaptic vesicle to move to the synaptic cleft.

  • The synaptic vesicle releases ACH neurotransmitter into the cleft.

  • ACH diffuses across the cleft and and binds to ACH receptors on the muscle fiber membrane.

  • Sodium channels open and release sodium into the muscle.

  • The muscle membrane depolarizes and a postsynaptic action potential results.

Reflexes

Auto = self

Reflex = rapid, predictable, involuntary response

ReflexArc = neural pathway of a reflex

(goes only one way)

Autonomic reflexes

regulate smooth muscles


Human body nervous system

Reflexes

Soma = body

Somatic reflexes

stimulates skeletal muscles


Human body nervous system

Brain Stem

About the size of a thumb in diameter and about 3 inches long.

Human body nervous system

Brain Stem

Midbrain = small part that relays impulses and controls reflexes for vision and hearing.


Human body nervous system

Brain Stem

Pons = bridge

Pons = rounded structure of mostly fiber tracts involved in the control of breathing.


Human body nervous system

Brain Stem

Medula Oblongata = merges into spinal cord; regulates vital internal activities including heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, swallowing, vomiting, etc.


Human body nervous system

Brain Stem

Cerebellum = Outer gray matter; inner white matter. Provides timing for skeletal muscle activity, controls balance, and equilibrium. Compared to “autopilot” because it constantly checks and adjusts.

Ataxia = Clumsy and disorganized movements as a result of damage to the cerebellum.

Duramater = outermost layer

Dura = hard

Mater = mother

Human body nervous system

Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) = fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord

Continually made from blood plasma in choroid plexuses which hang from the “roof” of the brains ventricles.

Circulates continuously by being produced and then drained back into blood plasma to keep a constant volume of about 150 ml.

Function: protection

Spinal Tap = sampling technique to test CSF.

Hydrocephalus = “water on the brain”


Human body nervous system

Keeps neurons separated from blood-borne substances.

BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER

Made of LEAST PERMEABLE capillaries in the body.

Can’t keep out fats, respiratory gases, alcohol, nicotine, or anesthetics.

Brain Injuries

Traumatic Brain Injuries and Brain Dysfunctions

Head injuries are the leading cause of accidental death in the USA.

Concussion = slight injury, dizziness, brief loss of consciousness.

http://www.pennmedicine.org/encyclopedia/em_DisplayAnimation.aspx?gcid=000034&ptid=17

Contusion = marked tissue destruction, coma

Cerebral Edema = swelling of the brain, death


Human body nervous system

Stroke = cerebrovascular accident (CVA) occurs when circulation is cut off to the brain.

http://www.pennmedicine.org/encyclopedia/em_DisplayAnimation.aspx?gcid=000123&ptid=17

Aphasia = result of damage to left cerebral hemisphere, affects speech.

motor aphasia = affects Broca’s area and loss of speechsensory aphasia = loss of understanding of language

TIA = transient ischemic attack (mini-stroke)
