2 divisions of the nervous system Central and Periphereal Nervous System
what does the CNS (central nervous system) consist of brain and spinal cord
what does the CNS (central nervous system) consist of brain and spinal cord
what does the CNS (central nervous system) consist of brain and spinal cord
parts of a neuron (6) dendrites - axon - cell body - myelin - nodes of ranvier - neurilemma
what does the PNS consist of somatic and autonomic
conducts nerve pulses for a neuron dendrite
what does the PNS consist of somatic and autonomic
conducts nerve pulses for a neuron dendrite
parts of a neuron (6) dendrites - axon - cell body - myelin - nodes of ranvier - neurilemma
transmits impulses away from cell body axon
conducts nerve pulses for a neuron dendrite
conducts nerve pulses for a neuron dendrite
transmits impulses away from cell body axon
conducts a nerve impulse from nucleus to axon cell body
condition where the myelin sheaths of a myelinated axon degenerate multiple sclerosis
white fatty substance that surrounds axon to provide insulation and nutrients - allows nerve impulses to skip down the axon for much quicker travel myelin
conducts a nerve impulse from nucleus to axon cell body
condition where the myelin sheaths of a myelinated axon degenerate multiple sclerosis
white fatty substance that surrounds axon to provide insulation and nutrients - allows nerve impulses to skip down the axon for much quicker travel myelin
the sections between the myelinated sheaths on an axon nodes of Ranvier
white fatty substance that surrounds axon to provide insulation and nutrients - allows nerve impulses to skip down the axon for much quicker travel myelin
condition where the myelin sheaths of a myelinated axon degenerate multiple sclerosis
the sections between the myelinated sheaths on an axon nodes of Ranvier
the sections between the myelinated sheaths on an axon multiple sclerosis
found strictly in PNS - the outer membrane of a Schwann cell - purpose is to regenerate damaged neuron neurilemma
speeds up nerve conduction bc the impulse skips down the axon via the myelin sheaths saltatory conduction

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
