Topic the nervous system l.jpg

Topic: The Nervous System

Aim: What is the function of the nervous system?

Do Now: Make a K-W-L Chart. Fill in the first two columns.


What is the function of the nervous system l.jpg

What is the function of the Nervous System?

  • Receive and send information about activities within the body

  • Monitor and respond to changes in the environment

  • Changes in the environment that cause a response are called STIMULI (STIMULUS – singular)

  • Nervous system tells other parts of the body what to do

  • Interpret (make sense of) various information


What is the stimulus what is the response l.jpg

What is the stimulus? What is the response?

1.An insect flies toward your eye and you blink to avoid danger.

  • Flying insect = stimulus

  • Blinking = response

    2.You put your hand on a hot stove and quickly remove it.

  • Hot stove (heat) = stimulus

  • Removing your hand from the stove = response

  • A child runs into the street while you’re driving a car, and you slam on the brakes.

  • Child running in the street = stimulus

  • Slamming on the brakes = response


What controls a response l.jpg

What controls a response?

  • Responses are a result of nerve impulses

  • An IMPULSE is a message sent by a neuron (nerve cell)

  • Responses to stimuli can be both voluntary or involuntary


Topic the nervous system5 l.jpg

Topic: The Nervous System

Aim: What is a neuron?

Do Now: Identify the stimulus and response in the following scenario: You’re sleeping. The alarm clock buzzes and you awaken.


What structures are part of the nervous system l.jpg

What structures are part of the nervous system?

1.Neurons: nerve cells

2.Spinal cord

3.Brain


Topic the nervous system7 l.jpg

Topic: The Nervous System

Aim: What is a reflex arc?

Do Now: Draw and label a neuron.


Topic the nervous system8 l.jpg

Topic: The Nervous System

Aim: What is a reflex arc?

Do Now: Give an example of a receptor.


Describe a neuron l.jpg

Describe a Neuron.

  • Neurons can never be replaced

  • Neurons contain:

  • Cell body (1)

  • Dendrites (2)

  • Nucleus (3)

  • Axon (4)

  • Axon terminals (5)

A neuron l.jpg

A Neuron

Dendrites: branches at the beginning of a neuron; RECEIVEIMPULSES and carry messages TO the cell body

Nucleus: control center

Axon Terminals: branches at the end of the neuron that pass IMPULSES (messages) on to dendrites of other neurons

Cell body: largest part of the neuron; contains the nucleus.

Axon: long tail-like fiber; Carries IMPULSES (messages) AWAY from cell body to the end of the neuron


How many different types of neurons are in the body l.jpg

How many different types of neurons are in the body?

  • Three different types:

    • Sensory neurons

    • Interneurons

    • Motor neurons


What are receptors and sensory neurons l.jpg

What are receptors and sensory neurons?

  • Receptor cells: receive information from surroundings

  • Impulses begin at receptors

  • Sense organs are receptors

    • Eyes– Nose

    • Ears– Skin

    • Tongue

  • Messages travel from receptors to the spinal cord and brain through SENSORY NEURONS


What are interneurons l.jpg

What are interneurons?

  • Interneurons are found in the spinal cord and brain

  • Connect sensory neurons to motor neurons


What are motor neurons l.jpg

What are motor neurons?

  • Carry impulses from interneurons (in brain and spinal cord) to EFFECTORS

  • EFFECTORS: muscles or glands that carry out a response


Topic the nervous system15 l.jpg

Topic: The Nervous System

Aim: What is a synapse?

Do Now: Substitute words for numbers in the following reflex arc:

Stimulus→1 →2 →3 →4 →5 →Response


Describe the path of a nerve impulse l.jpg

Describe the path of a nerve impulse.

  • Reflex arc = path of an impulse

  • stimulus → receptor → sensory neuron → interneuron → motor neuron → effector → response

interneuron

A reflex arc


How does an impulse get from one neuron to another neuron l.jpg

How does an impulse get from one neuron to another neuron?

  • Impulses travel from one neuron to another neuron in the form of an ELECTRICAL and CHEMICAL SIGNAL

  • Electrical impulses enter neurons at the dendrites, to cell body, through the axons, and out the end of the axon terminal


What is a synapse l.jpg

What is a Synapse?

  • Tiny gap between two neurons

  • Nerve impulse “jumps” the gap (synapse) between two neurons with a CHEMICAL SIGNAL

  • Chemical signal called a NEUROTRANSMITTER carries the impulse from one neuron to another


Topic the nervous system20 l.jpg

Topic: The nervous system

AIM: What are the two divisions of the nervous system?

Do Now:

1. Messages (impulses) are sent in the form of __________ and ___________ signals across neurons.

Describe the path of an impulse along one neuron.


Topic the nervous system21 l.jpg

Topic: The nervous system

AIM: What are the two divisions of the nervous system?

Do Now:

Describe the path of an impulse along one neuron.


How many divisions does the nervous system have l.jpg

How many divisions does the nervous system have?

  • Two divisions:

    • Central nervous system

    • Peripheral nervous system

  • Central nervous system is the control center of the body. It contains the SPINAL CORD AND BRAIN

  • Peripheral nervous system is a NETWORK OF NERVES that branch out from the central nervous system to the organs of your body


Topic the nervous system23 l.jpg

Topic: The nervous system

Aim: What are the three parts of the brain?

Do Now: Starting from the stimulus and ending with a response, describe the reflex arc in yesterday’s lab.


The central nervous system describe the brain l.jpg

cerebrum

medulla

cerebellum

The central nervous systemDescribe the brain.

  • The brain consists of three areas:

    • Cerebrum

    • Cerebellum

    • Medulla


Describe the cerebrum l.jpg

Describe the cerebrum.

  • Cerebrum is the largest part of the brain. It has wrinkled grooves and looks like a walnut.

  • Divided into two halves (right and left)


Topic the nervous system26 l.jpg

Topic: The nervous system

AIM: What is the peripheral nervous system?

Do Now: What are the three parts of the brain?


What does the cerebrum control l.jpg

Memory

Thinking

Speech

The 5 senses

Emotional thought

All voluntary actions

Ex: Walking, running, jumping

What does the cerebrum control?


Describe the cerebellum what does it control l.jpg

Describe the cerebellum. What does it control?

  • Located under the cerebrum

  • Second largest part of brain

  • Controls:

    • Balance

    • Movement (coordination)


Describe the medulla what does it control l.jpg

medulla

Describe the medulla. What does it control?

  • Located below the cerebellum

  • Connects the brain to the spinal cord

  • Controls involuntary actions

    • Breathing

    • heartbeat


Describe the spinal cord what does it control l.jpg

Describe the spinal cord. What does it control?

  • Protected by vertebrae in the spinal column

  • Connects the brain to the rest of the nervous system

  • Carries impulses to and from the brain

  • Controls quick, automatic, and simple responses called REFLEXES


What is the peripheral nervous system l.jpg

What is the Peripheral Nervous System?

  • Link between the central nervous system and the rest of the body

  • Consists of branching nerves throughout the body

  • Divided into two divisions

    • Autonomic

    • Somatic


How do the autonomic and somatic divisions of the peripheral nervous system differ l.jpg

How do the autonomic and somatic divisions of the peripheral nervous system differ?

  • Autonomic controls involuntary functions

  • Somatic controls voluntary

    functions
