The Nervous System

The Nervous System Good Morning Bell Ringer #1: Reflect back over winter break.

Bell Ringer #2 Review your notes from last class. Answer the following question using those notes: How did your nervous system help you conduct the activity you did in the computer lab (red light/green light activity)?

Yes, this is the same question you answered for bell ringer number 1. Use what you learned last class to add to or change your answer from bell ringer #1. Bell Ringer #3

For each profession, tell me if the individual would most likely be right-brained or left-brained.

Scientist Bell Ringer 4 Read the following passage While lying in bed one night, John heard a barking noise that seemed to be coming from

outside. He looked out the window and saw his yellow lab named Murphy had gotten loose! As he rushed down the stairs to fetch Murphy, John tripped and fell to the bottom of the stairs. He was in a great deal of pain! He then managed to make his way to the bathroom to take some pain

relievers. John read the label on the bottle he was to take 2 pills. Bell Ringer 4 cont After reading the story, explain how John may have used ALL 4

lobes of the cerebrum during this mishap! Use your notes! This is awesome! O lny srmat poelpe can raed tihs.

Welcome Mr. Durkin! The Nervous System 1. Two main divisions a. Central Nervous System (CNS) consists

of brain and spinal cord b. Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) includes nerves extending from brain and spinal cord c. The CNS receives messages from the PNS, interprets them, and then sends out a

response. Neurons 2. Neurons - nerve cells that transmit messages to and from the spinal cord and brain

a. Sensory Neurons carry messages FROM body TO CNS ex. Playing games in computer lab. When light switches to green, a sensory neuron transmits a message from your eye to your brain

Neurons b. Motor Neurons carry message TO body FROM CNS ex. Your brain sends a signal through a motor neuron to tell your finger to

click the mouse. c. Interneurons connect neurons What does a real neuron look like?

3. Structure and Functions of Neurons 1. Dendrites receive information and transmit impulses toward cell body 2. Cell Body large area which contains cell nucleus or power plant

3. Nucleus command center of the neuron 4. Axon transmit impulses away from cell body and toward axon terminal

5. Axon Terminals branched structures at the ends of neurons. 6. Myelin Sheath insulating coat which covers the axon. This helps messages relay faster.

Neuron Nerves of the Body Motor Unit Motor Unit A neuron and all the muscles it gives power to.

The Central Nervous System 1. The brain a. Helps you think, remember, reason, feel emotion, and coordinate muscle movement

b. Divided into three main parts: cerebrum, cerebellum, brain stem The Brain

The Central Nervous System 2. The Cerebrum a. largest, most complex part of brain b. right and left sides communicate with each other to coordinate movement. Right controls left side and vice versa.

c. left hemisphere is for more concrete thinking d. right hemisphere is for abstract thinking Are you left or right brained?!

The Central Nervous System 3. Four lobes (parts) of the cerebrum a. Frontal Lobe use of language b. Parietal Lobe sensory information, including feelings of heat, cold, pain,

touch c. Occipital Lobe Controls sense of sight d. Temporal sense of hearing and smell Frontal Lobe Exercise: Unscramble the following

words: LLBA DLOFER EPONH PHELNATE ICINMDEE

Parietal Lobe Exercise: 1. Blow on your hand 2. Now, puff your breath on your hand

Temporal Lobe Exercise: Whisper down the lane! Shhhh! Whisper

She sells seashells by the sea shore. Eleven owls licked eleven little liquorice lollipops." If two witches were watching two watches, which witch would watch which watch? If you want to buy, buy, if you don't want to buy,

bye bye!" Occipital Lobe Exercise: Lobes of the Brain

The Central Nervous System 4. The Cerebellum a. second largest part of brain b. maintains bodys posture and

balance c. coordinates complex muscle movements like serving a volleyball or playing violin Balancing Competition!!!

The Central Nervous System 5. The Brain Stem a. 3 inch long stalk of nerve cells that connect the spinal cord to the rest of the brain

The Central Nervous System b. five parts 1. Medulla Oblongata regulates heartbeat, breathing rate 2. Pons controls muscles of eyes and face.

3. Midbrain controls pupil size 4. Thalamus relays incoming information from the eyes, ears, and pressure receptors in skin 5. Hypothalamus regulates body temp, appetite, sleep

Brain Stem Activity 1 Find pulse/HR 25 Jumping Jacks! Jog in place!

Brain Stem 1. Medulla Oblongata regulates heartbeat, breathing rate

Activity 2 Watch the video! Activity 2 Brain Stem

2. Pons controls muscles of eyes and face. Activity 3 Find a partner

Look into their eyes!!! oooooooo 3. Midbrain controls pupil size

Activity 4 What does a switch board do? 4. Thalamus relays incoming information from the eyes, ears, and pressure

receptors in skin Activity 5 Imagine you are stranded on a cold (20 degree) deserted island with no supplies, food, or shelter. You havent slept in two days, nor have you ate in two days. How would you be

feeling??? 5. Hypothalamus regulates body temp, appetite, sleep

The Peripheral System 1. Broken into two parts a. Autonomic Nervous System controls involuntary functions such as digestion and heart rate - you cannot control this; it is automatic!

(autonomic) b. Somatic Nervous System voluntary responses that are under your control - feeling and itch on your skin and scratching it, or giving someone a high five

The Peripheral System 2. Autonomic Nervous System a. Broken down into two smaller networks b. First part is the Sympathetic nervous system Watch these clips

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqQbIiOtYM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUDknB2YWM Sympathetic Nervous System - kicks in when you are startled. Your heart rate increases. Also, blood vessels

dilate to allow for greater blood flow. - Fight or flight response - Rush of adrenaline - Example You pick! Write one down So, how exactly does all this

work? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdJpLvSTZMU The Peripheral System c. The second part: Parasympathetic nervous system opposite of

sympathetic nervous system - slows heartbeat, relaxes blood vessels, lowers blood pressure Problems of the Nervous System

1. Headaches caused by muscle tension, eyestrain, sinus infection, dehydration, or food allergies 2. Head injuries a. concussion a temporary loss of consciousness

Problems of the Nervous System 3. Spinal Injuries a. swelling of spinal cord tissue can result in temporary loss of nerve

function b. if spinal cord is severed, you may become paralyzed. Problems of the Nervous System

4. Meningitis inflammation of the spinal and cranial meninges caused by a virus or bacteria a. symptoms include fever, headache, light and sound sensitivity, and neck stiffness.

b. can result in death How to care for/prevent these problems: 1. Eat a well-balanced diet, exercise regularly, get lots of sleep!

2. Wear protective devices helmet, seat belt 3. Stay away from drugs and alcohol!!!

    For example, this seems to imply energy non-conservation (Banks, Peskin, Susskind, 1984). Argument: a local time-evolution law that turns pure into mixed states can be written as evolution with a spacetime-dependent Hamiltonian density (Ellis, Hagelin, Nanopoulos, Srednicki, 1984).
