Central Nervous System Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

nerve impulse, membrane potential of an active neuron Action potential
in a neuron, the single process that extends from the axon hillock and transmits impulses away from the cell body Axon
division of the nervous system composed of the brain and spinal cord Central nervous system
branching or tree-like nerve cell process that receives input from other neurons and transmits impulses toward the cell body (or toward the axon in unipolar neurons) Dendrite
nonexciteable supporting cells of nervous tissue; formerly called neruoglia glia
difference in electrical charge between inside and outside of the plasma membrane membrane potential
lipoprotein substance in the myelin sheath around many nerve fibers that contribute to high speed conductivity of impulses myelin
bundle nerve fibers, plus surrounding connective tissue, located outside the brain and spinal cord nerve
nerve cell, including its processes (axons and dendrites) neuron
nerves connecting the brain and spinal cord to other parts of the body peripheral nervous system
impulse conduction route to and from the central nervous system; smallest portion of nervous system that can receive a stimulus and generate a response reflex arc
membrane-to-membrane junction between a neuron and another neuron, effector cell, or sensory cell; function to propagate action potential synapse
part of the brain containing the midbrain, pons, and medulla oblongata brainstem
second largest part of the human brain; plays an essential role in the production of normal movements cerebellum
plasma-like fluid that fills the subarachnoid space in the brain and spinal cord and in the cerebral ventricles cerebrospinal fluid
largest and uppermost part of the human brain that controls consciousness, memory, sensations, emotions, and voluntary movements cerebrum
“between” brain; parts of the brain between cerebral hemispheres and the mesencephalon, or midbrain diencephalon
graphic representation of voltage changes in the brain tissue used to evaluate nerve tissue function electroencephalogram
important autonomic and neuroendocrine control center located inferior to the thalamus in the brain hypothalamus
parts of the brain involved in emotions and sense of smell; plays key role in coupling sensory inputs to short- and long-term memory; consists of the hippocampus, the hypothalamus and several other structures limbic system
fluid-containing membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord meninges
located in the medulla where bits of gray and white matter mix intricately, this structure is involved in regulating input from sensory neurons, arousal, and motor control Reticular formation
mass of gray matter located in diencephalon just above the hypothalamus; helps produce sensations, associates sensations with emotions, and plays a part in the arousal mechanism thalamus
a cavity, such as the large, fluid-filled spaces within the brain or the chambers of the heart ventricle
