The nervous system includes the BRAIN, SPINAL CORD, and NERVES. The spinal cord is a long column of nerves, and like the brain, is the consistency of a ripe banana.

The spinal cord is much like a highway system: the nerves are like lanes of traffic and there are millions of lanes of traffic on the spinal cord. The brain sends. The spinal cord is soft. It is about 50 centimetres long and extends from the base of the brain to your lower back.

The spinal cord is a bundle of spinal nerves wrapped together. The spinal nerves enter and exit the spinal cord through small spaces between the vertebrae. The blood vessels which carry oxygen to the spinal cord also use these Size: 1MB.

The Spinal Cord. It can be said that the spinal cord is what connects the brain to the outside world. Because of it, the brain can act. The spinal cord is like a relay station, but a very smart one.

It not only routes messages to and from the brain, but it also has its own system of automatic processes, called by: 2. Along the length of the spinal cord, 31 pairs of spinal nerves emerge through spaces between the vertebrae. Each spinal nerve runs from a specific vertebra in the spinal cord to a specific area of the body.

Based on this fact, the skin’s surface has been divided into areas called dermatomes. The spinal cord is a tube-like structure filled with a bundle of nerves and cerebrospinal fluid, which protects and nourishes the cord. Other protectors of the spinal cord include linings called meninges and vertebral bones.

The spinal cord is about an inch across at its widest point and about 18 inches long. The top of the spinal cord merges with the brain stem, where the basic processes of life are controlled, such as breathing and digestion.

In the opposite direction, the spinal cord ends just below the ribs—contrary to what we might expect, it does not extend all the way to the base of the spine. The spinal cord is functionally organized in Chapter 1- wk 1 Study Questions When the brain, spinal cord and nerves of the body communicate with each other, it represents the _____ level of organization.

When the brain, spinal cord and nerves of the body communicate with each other, it represents the _____ level of organization.

A Practical and Pathological Inquiry Into the Sources and. Nerves branching out from the spinal cord. Neurons. The part of the peripheral nervous system that controls internal biological functions.

Functions as a bridge to interconnect messages between the spinal cord and brain; also involved in producing chemicals needed for sleep. The brain is connected to the spinal cord, controls the nervous system, and regulates feelings, thoughts, consciousness, and volition, as well as controlling physical activities.

The brain is made up of a reservoir of nerve tissue and fiber called neuroglia, which nourishes around billion nerve cells. sensory information is then carried into the brain and spinal cord through cranial and spinal nerves.

Integrative function. The nervous system integrates (processes) sensory information by analyzing and storing some of it and by making decisions for appropriate responses. An important integrative function is perception, the conscious awareness. The Spinal Cord. It can be said that the spinal cord is what connects the brain to the outside world.

Because of it, the brain can act. The spinal cord is like a relay station, but a very smart one. It not only routes messages to and from the brain, but it also has its. Put the following tracts of the spinal cord with their functions (i.e.

tract, function, tract, function). Conduct motor impulses from the brain down the cord to the spinal nerves. Conduct Sensory Impulses such as pain, touch, and temperature up from the spinal nerves to the brain.

The brain stem connects the cerebrum with the spinal cord. It contains a system of nerve cells and fibers (called the reticular activating system) located deep within the upper part of the brain stem. This system controls levels of consciousness and alertness. For example, the lower leg jerks when the tendon below the kneecap is gently tapped with a small rubber hammer.

The pathway that a reflex follows (reflex arc) does not directly involve the brain. The pathway consists of the sensory nerve to the spinal cord, the nerve connections in the spinal cord, and the motor nerves back to the muscle.

Spinal Cord Injury Spinal cord injury is a serious problem that effects close topeople in the United States w people being injured per year.

There are many things that can lead to spinal cord injury, including athletic injuries, car accidents, and recreational activities like swimming and biking. with the spinal cord that gives rise to both motor and sensory nerve fibers. The The spinal cord is divided into 31 segments, based on the origin of the spinal nerves.1 Your body's nervous system has many important jobs.

It can also be divided into three categories. The central nervous system, or CNS, is made up of the brain and spinal is the center of your body and the center of control and coordination. The peripheral nervous system, or PNS, includes the nerves that reach the outer parts of your body.The Nervous System - Spinal Cord and Peripheral Nerves: The spinal cord is the connection center for the reflexes as well as the afferent (sensory) and efferent (motor) pathways for most of the body below the head and neck.

The spinal cord begins at the brainstem .
