Part of brain responsible for coordinating muscle movements & maintaining balance
Pertaining to muscles and nerves
Part of nerve cell that recieves nervous impulse
space through a nervous impulse is transmitted from one neuron to another or from a neuron to another cell such as a muscle or gland cell
abnormal sensation of tingling or prickling
paralysis of four extremities
condition of no nervous sensation
anterior lobe of pituiraty gland
Kal/i- combining form
sympathomimetic; elevates heart rate, blood pressure
promotes growth & maintenance of male sex
Stimulates water reabsorption by Kidney tubules, decreases urine
increases metabolism in body cells
Raises blood calcium
increases reabsorption of sodum by kidney tubules
Stimulates secretion of hormones from adrenal cortex
Adrenal Cortropic Thyroid Hormone
Increases blood sugar
Helps transport glucose to cells & decreases blood sugar
develops & maintains female sex characeristics
removal of pituitary gland
First layer of meninges
Second layer of meninges
Third layer of meninges
Thick, outermost layer of the meninges surrounding and protecting the brain and spinal cord (latin for hard mother)
Middle layer of the three membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord
three layers of connective tissue membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord
collection of spinal nerves below the end of the spinal cord
lower portion of the brain that connects the cerebrum with the spinal cord. The pons ad medulla oblongata are part of the brainstem.
microscopic fiber that carries the nervous impulse along a nerve cell
microscopic branching fiber of a nerve cell that is the first part to receive the nervous impulse.
a glial cell that lines membranes within the brain and spinal cord and helps form cerebrospinal fluid
collection of nerve cell bodies in the peripheral nervous system.
Central nervous system; brain and spinal cord
sheet of nerve cells that produces a round fold on the surface of the cerebral cortex; convolution
macroscopic cordlike collection of fibers (axons and dendrites) that carry electrical impulses
involuntary, autonomic nerves that regulate normal body functions such as heart rate, breathing, and muscles of gastrointestinal tract
part of the brain anterior to the cerebellum and between the medulla and the rest of the midbrain. It is a bridge connecting various parts of the brain
connective and supporting tissue of an organ. glial cells are the stromal tissue of the brain.
main relay center of the brain. conducts impulses between spinal cord and cerebrum
tenth cranial nerve; its branches reach to the larynx, trachea, bronci, lungs, aorta, esohagus, and stomach.
What CNS tumor cells stain positive for glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP)?
