Flashcards in Nervous System Part 3 Deck (41):
1

Bits of gray matter mix closely and intricately with white matter in the Medula

Reticular formation

2

Three parts of the brainstem

Medulla oblongata, pons, and midbrain

3

Important reflex centers located in the brainstem

Cardiac, respiratory, and Vasomotor centers

4

Second largest part of the human

Cerebellum

5

Functions of the cerebellum

To produce move coordinated movements, maintain equilibrium, and sustained normal postures

6

Three major structures of the Dienephalon

Hypothalamus, bonus, and penial gland

7

Structure that controls vital functions such as heartbeat, construction in dilation of blood vessels in contractions of the stomach and intestines

Hypothalamus

8

Where is the antidiuretic hormone (ADH) found

Pituitary gland

9

Mechanism crucial for maintaining

Hypothalamus

10

Structure insults and functions such as regulation of water balance, sleep cycles, and the control of appetite and many emotions involved and pleasure, fear, anger, sexual arousal, and pain

Hypothalamus

11

Three functions and wish the thalamus performs

It helps produce in stations, it associate since Seshan's with emotions, and it plays a part in the so-called arousal or alerting mechanism

12

What receives sensory information about the strength of light seen by the eyes and I just its output of the hormone melatonin

The pineal gland

13

What is melatonin known as

The timekeeping hormone

14

The riches of the brain are called what

Gyrus

15

The grooves of the brain are called what

Sulcus

16

Fissure that divides the cerebrum into right and left halves

Longitudinal fissure

17

Structure that connects the two hemispheres of the brain

Corpus callosum

18

A thin layer of gray matter made up of neuron dendrites and cell bodies, forms of service of the cerebrum

Cerebral cortex

19

Function is essential for producing automatic movements and postures

Basal nuclei or basal ganglia

20

Cerebrovascular accident

Hemorrhage from a cessation of blood flow through cerebral blood vessels

21

Where is the auditory association area in the primary auditory area

The Temporal lobe

22

Where is the primary somatic motor area or the precentral gyrus

The frontal lobe

23

Where is the muscle coordination or premotor area

The frontal lobe

24

What lobe is conscious thought or the prefrontal association area

The frontal lobe

25

Where is the motor speech area or the Brocka area

The frontal lobe

26

Where is the visual cortex in the visual association area

The occipital lobe

27

Where is the primary taste center

The parietal lobe

28

Where is the primary somatic sensory area or body since perception

The parietal lobe

29

Where is the somatic sensory association area or body since perception

The parietal lobe

30

Where is Wernick's area or sensory speech area

The parietal lobe

31

What does the brain stem include

Medela oblongata, Pons, midbrain, and cerebellum

32

What does the Diencephalon include

Hypothalamus, Delmas, pineal gland, Cerebrum

33

Two way conduction pathway between the spinal cord and higher brain centers; cardiac, respiratory, and Vasso motor control center

Medulla oblongata

34

Two way conduction pathway between areas of the brain in other regions of the body; influences respiration

Pons

35

Two way conduction pathway; relay for visual and auditory impulses

Midbrain

36

Muscle coordination; maintenance of equilibrium and posture

Cerebellum

37

Regulation of body temperature, water balance, sleep cycle control, appetite and sexual arousal

Hypothalamus

38

Sensory relay station from various body areas to cerebral cortex; emotions and alerting or arousal mechanisms

Thalamus

39

I just output of melatonin in response to change and external light, to keep the body's internal clock on time

pineal gland

40

Sensory perception, emotions, will movements, consciousness, and memory

Cerebrum

41

Medulla oblongata

Gray and white matter form to form the reticular formation and it is an enlarged upward extension of the spinal cord
