1


receive stimuli from the environment or from different organs of the body
transmit impulses to the brain and spinal cord

Nervous tissues

2

Properties of Nervous Tissues:

1. Irritability
- react to various stimuli
2. Conductivity
- transmit impulses

3

A. Anatomical Division

CNS – brain and spinal cord
PNS – Peripheral Nervous System
- nerves outside the CNS and their associated ganglia

4

B. Functional Division

Sensory component – transmits signal ( electrical impulses) to the CNS
Motor component – transmits impulses from the CNS to various structures of the body
1. somatic
2. autonomic

5

C. Consists of two types of cells

Nerve cells (neurons) – conduct electrical impulses
glial (neuroglial cells – support, nurture, and protect the neurons

6

2 elements of nervous tissue:

- structural and functional units
- receive and transmit impulses

1. Neurons

7

2 elements of nervous tissue:
- glial cells
- specialized type of connective tissue
- non neuronal cells of the CNS and PNS

2. Neuroglia

8

Nucleus – “owl-eye nucleus”
-abundant in ?

euchromatin

9

cytoplasmic organelles in neurons

Cytoplasmic organelles
a. Nissl bodies - polysomes and RER
most abundant in motor neuron
b. Golgi complex and mitochondria
c. melanin- containing granules
d. Lipofuscin- containing granules
e. lipid droplets

10

- polysomes and RER most abundant in motor neuron

Cytoplasmic organelles
a. Nissl bodies

11

3. cytoskeletal filaments of neuron

a. neurofilaments
b. microtubules
c. actin filaments

12

receive stimuli from sensory cells, axons or other neurons

dendrites

13

and convert these signals into action potentials that are transmitted toward the soma

dendrites

14

presence of arborized terminals


dendrites

15

spines on the surface

dendrites

16

cytoplasm lacks Golgi complex

dendrites

17


1. conducts impulses away from the soma to the axon terminals






AXONS

18

2. up to 100 cm length

AXONS

19

3. originates at the axon hillock

AXONS

20


4. with axon collateral

AXONS

21

5. axoplasm with SER, RER, mitochondria

AXONS

22

8. Initial segments for site if various excitatory and inhibitory stimuli

AXONS

23

7. terminates into axon terminals

AXONS

24


6. membrane is called axolemma

AXONS

25


- many dendrites and one axon
ex. neurons in the CNS



1. Multipolar neuron

26


- one axon and one dendrite
ex. neurons in the retina of the eye and neurons in the nasal cavity

2. Bipolar neuron

27


- one process extending from the cell body that divides into an
axon and dendrite
ex. Spinal and cranial ganglia

3. Unipolar neurons (pseudounipolar)

28

>Protect and support neurons
>Do not conduct impulses or form impulses or form synapses
>Cell Division
>Revealed only in histologic sections by special gold and silver stains

neuroglial cells

29

Are the largest of the neuroglial cells



astrocytes

30

“perivascular feet” that surround blood vessels and pia matter

astrocytes
