circadian rhythm → the biological clock; regular-bodily rhythms (for example, of temperature and wakefulness) that occur on a 24-hour cycle.
adrenal glands → portion of the cerebral cortex lying at the top of the head and toward the rear; receives sensory input for touch and body position.
REM rebound → a nerve cell; the basic building block of the nervous system.
limbic system → neural system (including the hippocampus, amygdala, and hypothalamus) located below the cerebral hemispheres; associated with emotions and drives.
motor cortex → area at the rear of the frontal lobe; controls voluntary movements.
