100

Which body part serves as the communication highway between the body and the brain?

The spinal cord

100

How many lobes does the brain have?

4

100

What is the scientific name for the brain?

Cerebrum

100

Where are neurons found in the body?

In the brain, the spinal cord, and all throughout the body!

100

What is a neuron?

Neurons are the building blocks of the nervous system and acts as a chemical messenger that sends information through the nervous system

200

Name all the parts of the nervous system.

The brain, the spinal cord, and the nerves

200

What does the frontal lobe do?

The frontal lobe controls emotions, judgement, and decision making

200

I protect the brain and act as a cushion between the brain and the skull. What am I?

Cerebrospinal fluid

200

What do neurons send and receive? 

Electrical impulses or signals

200

What does the myelin sheath do?

Insulates the axon and increases the speed of the electrical impulse

300

What is the name of the signal that the brain sends out to move body parts

motor output

300

Identify the yellow area.

The parietal lobe

300

What does the parietal lobe do?

The parietal lobe processes and interprets all sensory information

300

Which part of the neuron takes signals from other cells?

Dendrites

300

The DNA is found in this organelle

Nucleus

400

Describe what happens when someone is in an accident and can no longer walk or feel their legs.

An injury has occurred to their spinal cord which breaks the communication bridge between the brain and the highway. Because the bridge is broken, brain signals cannot reach the legs leading to paralysis

400

If I can no longer coordinate my movements and become unbalanced, which part of the brain is affected?

The cerebellum

400

Identify the green area of the brain

The temporal lobe

400

Identify number 4

Axon

400

Identify number 5

Axon terminal

500

What are the nerves called that are located in our extremities (our fingers and toes)

Peripheral nerves

500

What two parts make up the brain stem? (Hint: We talked about it briefly during the dissection)

Medulla oblongata and the pons

500

Where is the arbor vitae located?

Cerebellum

500

List the parts of the neuron that an electrical signal goes through in the correct order

Dendrites, cell body, axon, axon terminals

500

This is the last place an electrical signal goes through before being sent to another cell. What am I?

Axon terminal
