THE
SUPER
AWESOME
NERVOUS
SYSTEM
100


Has specialized areas for attention, problem solving, creativity, memories, decision making, and logic

Frontal Lobe

100

Balance and coordination 

Cerebellum

100

respond to temperature change 

thermorecpetors

100

(neurotransmitters) = chemical messengers that carry messages from one neuron to the next cell

chemical messengers

100

The endpoint of a neuron where neurotransmitters are stored and where chemical messages get sent out

Axon terminal

200

Receives sensory input for touch and body position, knows where you are in 3d space

Parietal Lobe

200

Brain and spinal cord

Central Nervous system
200


detect electromagnetic energy such as light, electricity, magnetism, and muscle movement

electromagnetic recpetors

200

covers the axon and helps speed the electrical impulses through (cushions)

Myelin Sheath

200

Controls vision and sight

Occipital lobe

300

Controls Voluntary movements

Motor Cortex

300

Every other nerve in your body

peripheral nervous system

300

The 5 senses

vision,taste,hearing,touch,smell(olification)

300

Specialized cells that myelinate the fibers of neurons

Schwann cell

300

take signals from your sensory receptors and send to your central nervous

sensory neurons
400

registers and processes body touch and movement sensations

Sensory Cortex

400

respond to touch, pressure, vibration etc..

Mechanoreceptors 

400

Receive Messages from other cells

Dendrites

400

gaps in the myelin sheath, allow fast transports

Nodes of ranvier
400


communicate between brain and spine

Inter neurons

500

A region of the cerebral cortex responsible for expressions, speech, social cues, smell etc...

Temporal Lobe

500

Respond to chemicals

chemorecpetors

500

Contains the nucleus and other components to maintain its life

Cell Body

500

Carries nerve impulses away from the cell body

Axon

500

communicate output or reaction

Motor neurons
