this division of the NS functions in receiving, integrating, and responding to sensory information
this division of the PNS functions in sending sensory information into the CNS from receptors in organs
this division of the PNS carries motor commands from the CNS to effectors in muscles, organs, and glands.
this division of the efferent NS controls smooth muscles, cardiac muscles, and gland secretions.
this division of the autonomic NS increases organ activity during stress, emergency, or fight or flight
this division of the autonomic NS decreases organ activity to calm and reduce stress
this functional unit of the NS carries information as electrical impulses from one body part to another.
what part of the neuron is the production site for chemical messengers, which relay information from neuron to neuron?
what are branched processes that extend from the cell body and terminate at the dendrite spines?
what part of the neuron recieves impulses from neurons in the CNS and receptors in the PNS
this is the part of the synapse which is a small space separating the pre and post synaptic cell
this neurotransmitter is the most common neurotransmitter.
it is found in the brain, spinal cord, and neuromuscular junction
this neurotransmitter regulates muscle movement by inhibiting antagonist muscles. it is found in motor areas of the brain.
this types of structural neurons are small and star shaped (dendrites and axons appear the same)
this types of structural neurons short cells with 2 fibers
(1 branched dendrite and 1 branched axon)
this types of structural neurons are found in special sense organs of sight, smell, and sound.
this types of structural neurons is most common in CNS and can be found as motor neurons in PNS>
this type of functional classification of neurons contains unipolar neurons that deliver information from sensory receptors to CNS>
this types of sensory neuron delivers information about the external environment to the CNS for processing
this functional classification of neurons contains multipolar neurons. it carries responses from the CNS to the PNS effectors
these types of structural neurons are made up of multipolar neurons in the CNS. they integrate incoming sensory information and coordinate outgoing motor response.
these cells of the CNS neuroglia are specialized epithelial cells that line the free surface of the spinal cord and brain.
this fluid circulates around the brain and the spinal cord and circulates wastes and nutrients
these cells of the CNS neuroglia: blood brain barrier, permeability, structure and framework and stabilization
these cells of the CNS neuroglia are incharge of phagocytes and search out and engulf pathogens
these cells of the CNS neuroglia bind together groups of axons and help to speed up nerves impulses. they create myelin
