9.11 The Meninges - Belle Vernon Area School District

Spinal Cord passes down the vertebral canal, has 31 segments (each with a pair of spinal nerves) Cervical enlargement = supplies

nerves to upper limbs (neck) Lumbar enlargement = supplies nerves to the lower limbs (lower back) FUNCTION: conducting nerve impulses, serves as a center for

spinal reflexes ASCENDING impulses travel to the brain (sensory) DESCENDING impulses travel to the muscles (motor)

Spinal reflexes - reflex arcs pass through the spinal cord MENTAL HOSPITAL PHONE MENU Hello and thank you for calling The State Mental Hospital.

Please select from the following options menu: If you are obsessive-compulsive, press 1 repeatedly. If you are co-dependent, please ask someone to press 2 for you.

If you have multiple personalities, press 3, 4, 5 and 6. If you are paranoid, we know who you are and what you want, stay on the line so we can trace your call.

If you are manic-depressive, hang up. It doesn't matter which number you press,

nothing! will make you happy anyway. If you are dyslexic, press 9-6-9-6. If you are bipolar, please leave a message after the beep or before the beep or after the beep.

But Please wait for the beep. If you have short-term memory loss, press 9. If you have short-term memory loss, press 9. If you have short-term memory loss, press 9. THE BRAIN

ANATOMICAL REGIONS oCerebrum oCerebellum

oBrain Stem CEREBELLUM Balance and coordination

CEREBRUM wrinkly large part of the brain, largest area in humans, higher mental

function Brain Stem regulates visceral functions (autonomic

system) Figure 13.4 1. Cerebral Hemispheres - left and right side separated by the ....

2. Corpus Callosum - connects the two hemispheres

The Cerebral Hemispheres Figure 13.7b, c Take the Left Brain Right Brain Test

Corpus callosum 3. Convolutions of the Brain - the wrinkles and grooves of the cerebrum

Fissures = deep groove Sulcus = shallow groove Gyrus = bump 4. Fissures separate lobes

Longitudinal fissure - separate right and left sides Transverse Fissure - separates cerebrum from cerebellum

Lateral Fissure separates the temporal lobe from the Frontal and Parietal lobes Lobes of the Brain (general 5. Frontal reasoning, thinking, language

6. Parietal touch, pain, relation of body parts (somatosensory) 7. Temporal Lobe hearing 8. Occipital vision

is the outermost portion of cerebrum (the part Functional and Structural Areas of the Cerebral Cortex Figure 13.11a

10.VENTRICLES OF THE BRAIN Fluid filled cavities, contain CSF

11. Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) fluid that protects and supports brain Figure 13.27b FUNCTIONAL REGIONS


- controls voluntary movements - the right side of the brain generally controls the left side of the body

-also has Broca's Area (speech) 13. Sensory Area - involved in feelings and sensations

(visual, auditory, smell, touch, taste) 14. Association Areas - higher levels of thinking, interpreting and analyzing information


Consists of three parts: MIDBRAIN PONS MEDULLA OBLONGATA 1. Diencephalon

has 2 parts..... 2. Hypothalamus - hormones, heart rate, blood pressure, body temp, hunger 3. Thalamus relay station 4. Optic Tract / Chiasma - optic nerves cross

over each other Cerebellum balance, coordination 5. Midbrain visual reflexes, eye

movements 6. Pons - relay sensory information 7. Medulla heart, respiration, blood Pituitary Gland The "master gland" of

the endocrine system. It controls hormones. Thalamus Pineal gland

Hypothalamus Corpus callosum Medulla Oblongata

Pons Midbrain 9. HIPPOCAMPUS

Memory is controlled by the HIPPOCAMPUS (sea horse; thats its shape). The hippocampus plays a major role in memories.

10. The LIMBIC SYSTEM The LIMBIC SYSTEM plays a role in EMOTION also includes olfactory lobes - memory, emotion, and smell are linked. Crayolas are created today with the same scent because it

reminds people of their happy times in childhood. Why is the brain formed so that smell and emotions are tied together? Because pheromones are tied to emotions and behavior, so they need the link. MEMORY

We used to classify memory as being long-term or short-term. The new classification is four memory systems that process information for storage and retrieval: Types of Memory:

Short vs Long Term How important are your memories? If you were involved in a traumatic event, such as a rape or a terrorist

attack, would you take a pill that would make it so that you did not remember the event? http://psychcentral.com/news/2011/ 05/27/drug-metyrapone-to-erase-ba

d-memories/26532.html Episodic Memory Involved in remembering personal experiences, such as a phone conversation you had yesterday or the movie you watched last week.

Challenge: Do you remember the first Harry Potter movie? What was the story? How many details do you remember? Semantic Memory

Manages the storage and retrieval of general knowledge of facts, such as the number of days in a year or the colors in a rainbow. Naming objects is also semantic memory. Semantic Memory Tasks

1. What do you call this thing? 2. Where do Kangaroos live?3. What actor played Bella in Twilight? Procedural Memory Allows us to learn activities and skills that will then be performed automatically with little or no

conscious thought. Examples are riding a bicycle or driving a car. Challenge: 1. Can you make a teacup with a length of string? 2. Do you know how to use a can opener?

Working Memory provides temporary storage and manipulation of the information necessary for such complex cognitive tasks as language comprehension, learning, and reasoning. Working Memory TestMemory GameAnother Memory Game
