Neural Communication: The Neural Chain

Module 7: Neural and Hormonal Systems

receptor cells
Receptor Cells
  • Specialized cells in the sensory systems of the body that can turn other kinds of energy into action potentials that the nervous system can process
  • EX. Receptor cells in the eye turn light into a neural impulse the brain understands.
  • Examples from other senses?
sensory nerves
Sensory Nerves
  • Nerves that carry information to the central nervous system
  • The receptor cell is the beginning of the chain
  • Connect the sense organs to the brain and spinal cord
interneurons
Interneurons
  • Nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord responsible for processing information related to sensory input and motor output
motor nerves
Motor Nerves
  • Nerves that carry information from the central nervous system
  • Carries messages from the brain and spinal cord to other parts of your body
personal example
Personal example
  • Think of an example when you were in physical discomfort, but you “toughed it out” because you didn’t want people to make fun of you or think less of you.
  • Share it with a partner.
reflex vs thought process
Reflex vs. thought process
  • Your example
  • Touch a hot burner on a stove – what do you do?
  • A baseball is coming quickly right at you – what do you do?
  • Blow in your face?
