This project is a two-day in-class project in which the students will be asked to apply their knowledge of the nervous system in a higher-level fashion by representing what they feel the brain functions are. Included is a resource diagram of the brain, brainstem & cerebellum. Also included is a list of what occurs in each part of the brain.
Neurons have different shapes depending on their functions. Interneurons carry information between motor and sensory neurons. Sensory neurons carry information to the central nervous system. Motoneurons carry signals from the central nervous system to the muscles, skin, and glands and pyramidal neurons are involved with motor control and cognitive ability. health.howstuffwo...
Good article.Executive dysfunction is a term for the range of cognitive, emotional and behavioural difficulties which often occur after injury to the frontal lobes of the brain. Impairment of executive functions is common after an abi and has a profound effect on many aspects of everyday life.This factsheet explains what executive functions are, why they are so important and which part of the brain is responsible for controlling them. Very useful.
Your nervous system is an extensive network that channels nerve impulses from your brain to virtually every cell that makes up your body. This chart shows some of the integral relationships between the spine, nervous system and the body.
I would've done so much better in my anatomy & physiology class had I seen this flow chart! The divisions of the nervous system; divided into the PNS (afferent/efferent; autonomic/somatic-sympathetic/parasympathetic) and CNS (brain and spinal cord: cerebrum; cerebellum; brainstem-medulla, pons, midbrain; diencephalon-thalamus and hypothalamus).
