Science 6th Chapter 11

11 1 the nervous system

11.1 The Nervous System

Central nervous system


Spinal Cord

Involved in all activities of the body

Central Nervous System

Nerves and sense organs

Nerves carry messages back and forth though out the body

Sense organs are your eyes, ears, nose, tongue, skin

Nerves and Sense Organs

Automatic control

Automatic Control

11 2 nerve cells

Neurons - Electrical messages sent from your brain to your nerve cells

Each neuron is made of three parts – dendrite, cell body, axon

11.2 Nerve Cells


Short fibers that spread out from the cell body nerve cells

Receive messages coming to the cell from other neurons

Messages move from dendrite to cell body


Cell body

Main part of the neuron nerve cells

Acts as a message center

Usually lies within the spinal cord or brain

Cell Body

Long fibers of the neuron opposite the dendrite nerve cells

Sends messages from the cell to other neurons


Facts about the brain

Master of the nervous system cord

Controls the entire body

Weighs 3 pounds

Has 10 billion nerve cells

Uses 20% of the oxygen in your blood

Skull protects the brain

Facts about the Brain
