THE BASIC FUNCTIONAL UNIT OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM IS THE NEURON. WHAT IS THE MAJOR FUNCTION OF THIS CELL TYPE?

TO TRANSMIT AND GENERATE MESSAGES (NERVE IMPULSES) FROM ONE PART OF THE BODY TO ANOTHER.

2

NAME FOUR TYPES OF NEUROGLIA IN THE CNS, AND LIST A FUNCTION FOR EACH OF THESE CELLS.

1. ASTROCYTES, HELPS REGULATE THE EXTRACELLULAR COMPOSITION OF BRAIN FLUID.

2. EPENDYMAL CELLS, SECRETES CEREBROSPINAL FLUID & HELPS MOVE CEREBROSPINAL FLUID IN BRAIN AND SPINAL CORD.

3. MICROGLIA, ARE PHAGOCYTIC CELLS IN THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM (CNS)

4. OLIGODENDROCYTES, FORM PART OF THE MYELIN SHEATHS OF AXONS WITHIN THE CNS.

3

NAME THE PNS GLIAL CELL THAT FORMS MYELIN.

SCHWANN CELLS

4

NAME THE PNS GLIAL CELL THAT SURROUNDS DORSAL ROOT GANGLION NEURONS.

SATELLITE CELLS

5

THE BRAIN AND SPINAL CORD COLLECTIVELY

CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM

6

SPECIALIZED SUPPORTING CELLS IN THE CNS

NEUROGLIA

7

JUNCTION OR POINT OF CLOSE CONTACT BETWEEN NEURONS

SYNAPSE

8

A BUNDLE OF NERVE PROCESSES INSIDE THE CNS

NERVE

9

NEURON SERVING AS PART OF THE CONDUCTION PATHWAY BETWEEN SENSORY AND MOTOR NEURONS

INTERNEURON

Ok, so you’re using my notecards which is great. I am glad I could help you out cause I wish I had someone to help me out when I took this course. I know Anatomy is super hard

I only ask that if you find these notecards helpful, you join Easy Notecards and create at least one notecard set to help others out. It can be for any subject or class. Thanks and don’t forget to rate my helpfulness!

GANGLIA AND SPINAL AND CRANIAL NERVES

TRACT

12

COLLECTION OF NERVE CELL BODIES FOUND OUTSIDE THE CNS

GANGLION

13

NEURON THAT CONDUCTS IMPULSES AWAY FROM THE CNS TO MUSCLES AND GLANDS

EFFERENT NEURON

14

NEURON THAT CONDUCTS IMPULSES TOWARD THE CNS FROM THE BODY PERIPHERY

AFFERENT NEURON

15

CHEMICALS RELEASED BY NEURONS THAT STIMULATE OR INHIBIT OTHER NEURONS OR EFFECTORS

25

WHAT SUBSTANCE IS FOUND IN SYNAPTIC VESICLES OF THE AXON TERMINAL?

NEUROTRANSMITTER

26

WHAT ROLE DOES THIS SUBSTANCE PLAY IN NEUROTRANSMISSION? (NEUROTRANSMITTER)

IT DIFFUSES ACROSS THE SYNAPTIC CLEFT TO BIND TO MEMBRANE RECEPTORS ON THE NEXT NEURON; INITIATING AN ELECTRICAL CURRENT (SYNAPTIC POTENTIAL).

27

WHAT ANATOMICAL CHARACTERISTIC DETERMINES WHETHER A PARTICULAR NEURON IS CLASSIFIED AS UNIPOLAR, BIPOLAR, AND MULTIPOLAR?

THEIR DIFFERENTIATED ACCORDING TO THE NUMBER OF PROCESSES ATTACHED TO THE CELL BODY.

28

MAKE A SIMPLE LINE DRAWING OF EACH TYPE:
UNIPOLAR, BIPOLAR, OR MULTIPOLAR

CORRECTLY IDENTIFY THE SENSORY (AFFERENT) NEURON, INTERNEURON (ASSOCIATION NEURON), AND MOTOR (EFFERENT) NEURON IN THE FIGURE.

30
card image

WHICH OF THESE NEURON TYPES IS/ARE UNIPOLAR?

SENSORY (AFFERENT) NEURON

31
card image

WHICH IS/ARE MOST LIKELY MULTIPOLAR?

INTERNEURON (ASSOCIATION NEURON)

32

DESCRIBE HOW THE SCHWANN CELLS FROM THE MYELIN SHEATH AND THE NEURILEMMA ENCASING THE NERVE PROCESSES.

SCHWANN CELLS WRAP THEMSELVES TIGHTLY AROUND THE AXON IN A JELLYROLL FASHION; AND THE NEURILEMMA IS A EXPOSED PLASMA MEMBRANE, HAS MANY SCHWANN CELLS AND IS A DISCONTINOUS SHEATH.

33

WHAT IS A NERVE?

A NERVE IS A BUNDLE OF NEURON FIBERS (AXONS) WRAPPED IN CONNECTIVE TISSUE COVERING THAT EXTENDS TO AND FROM THE CNS AND VISCERAL ORGANS OR STRUCTURES OF THE BODY PERIPHERY.

34

STATE THE LOCATION OF EACH OF THE FOLLOWING CONNECTIVE TISSUE COVERINGS.

ENDONEURIUM, PERINEURIUM, EPINEURIUM

ENDONEURIUM - INNER MOST LAYER, AN ADDITIONAL SHEATH THAT SURROUNDS THE MYELIN SHEATH.

PERINEURIUM - MIDDLE LAYER, BOUNDS GROUPS OF FIBERS, FORMS BUNDLES OF FIBERS.

EPINEURIUM - OUTER MOST LAYER, BOUNDS FASCICLES TOGETHER, FORMS THE CORDLIKE NERVE.

35

WHAT IS THE FUNCTION OF THE CONNECTIVE TISSUE WRAPPINGS FOUND IN A NERVE?

TO INSULATE FROM OTHER PROCESSES AND TO BIND AND FORM BUNDLES, AND TO PROTECT.

36

DEFINE MIXED NERVE

A NERVE CARRYING BOTH SENSORY (AFFERENT) AND MOTOR (EFFERENT) FIBERS. MOST NERVES OF THE BODY, INCLUDING ALL SPINAL NERVES ARE MIXED NERVES.

37
