Nervous System Review
- Identify the two anatomical divisions of the nervous
- Identify the two functional divisions of the nervous
the type of neuron that transmits information from receptors to the CNS.
and explain the difference between the two branches of the motor neurons.
Use heart rate in your example.
is white matter versus gray matter?
are bundles of neuron processes in the CNS called versus the PNS?
- Identify three general characteristics of neurons that
do not include their anatomy.
- Identify the four types of glial
cells and explain their function.
- Myelination of nerve cells in the PNS is the job of
where are multipolar neurons located in the
nervous system? What role do they play?
where are bipolar and unipolar neurons located
in the nervous system? What role do they play?
do efferent and afferent mean as they apply to
the organization of the nervous system?
- Draw a
reflex arc for an autonomic response. Label all players and their
is a monosynaptic reflex? Name an example.
rough endoplasmic reticulum and ribosomes are
arranged sp as to produce small bodies called: _________________ .
of a neuronal membrane is due to the movement of ____________
neuron that has as its primary function the job or action of connecting
other neurons is called
a substance that decreases membrane permeability
to sodium _________ the probability of generating a
nerve impulse. (increase or decrease)
what ways does the interior surface of a membrane of a resting (non conducting) neuron differ from the external
For the following questions use
the word bank:
potential depolarization refractory period repolarization stimulus hyperpolarization
On the diagram
draw out the sequence of events when the action potential reaches the axon
terminal and sends a signal to start an action on the next target cell.
Label everything you can think of including the types of transports used at the
presynaptic and postsynaptic neurons.
