1 CHAPTER 11: NERVOUS II: DIVISIONS OF THE NERVOUS OBJECTIVES: 1. Outline the major divisions of the nervous system. NERVOUS CENTRAL NERVOUS (BRAIN & SPINAL CORD) (INTERNEURONS) PERIPHERAL NERVOUS (CRANIAL NERVES & SPINAL NERVES) SENSORY (INPUT INTO CNS) (AFFERENT NEURONS) MOTOR (OUTPUT FROM CNS) (EFFERENT NEURONS) SOMATIC (EFFECTORS: SKELETAL MUSCLE) MUSCLE, (CONSCIOUS CONTROL) AUTONOMIC (EFFECTORS: SMOOTH CARDIAC MUSCLE, GLANDS) (UNCONSCIOUS CONTROL) PARASYMPATHETIC (HOMEOSTASIS) (NT: ACETYLCHOLINE) SYMPATHETIC (FIGHT-OR-FLIGHT) (NT: NOREPINEPHRINE) 11-1

2 CHAPTER 11: NERVOUS II: DIVISIONS OF THE NERVOUS 2. Discuss how the organs of the central nervous system (CNS) are protected in terms of bones, membranes and fluid. Bones Protects the brain = 8 bones of cranium; Protects spinal cord = vertebral column Membranes (Meninges) Membranes that surround and protect the brain and the spinal cord Cerebrospinal cord Provides protective cushion, nourishes, maintains ion and NT concentrations 3. Name the three meninges and discuss the differences between how they are structured around the brain and spinal cord. Dura mater - outer most layer; DRCT; attached to bone of skull but not to bone of vertebrae = epidural space Arachnoid mater- middle layer = thin delicate, underside of dura mater Pia mater- inner layer that covers brain and spinal cord 4. Name the space that lies between two of the meninges surrounding both the brain and spinal cord, and name the fluid that fills this space. Subarachnoid space : filled with cerebrospinal fluid and lined by ependymal cells 5. Name the additional space that is found around the spinal cord, and name the fluid that fills this space. Epidural space, filled with loose CT and fat 6. Define the term meningitis. An inflammation of the meninges (caused by viral or bacterial infection) 7. Discuss the external structure of the spinal cord in terms of its length, start, end, number of segments, and enlarged areas. About 17 inches long, the start is the foramen magnum, it tapers to a point and terminates near the intervertebral disc that separates the first/ second lumbar vertebrae in a point called the conus medullaris Has 31 segments that give rise to 31 pairs of spinal nerves Enlargement are in the cervical and lumbar regions. About the thickness of thumb Remnant of distal pia mater = filum terminale 8. Name the terminal point of the spinal cord, the term used for how the remaining spinal nerves appear, and the point at which they terminate. Conus medullaris cauda equina filum terminale 11-2

3 CHAPTER 11: NERVOUS II: DIVISIONS OF THE NERVOUS 9. Illustrate the cross-sectional anatomy of the spinal cord and label all parts. 11-3

4 CHAPTER 11: NERVOUS II: DIVISIONS OF THE NERVOUS 10. Name the cells that line the central canal and identify the fluid that fills the central canal. Lined by ependymal cells, and is filled with cerebrospinal fluid 11. Distinguish between a "horn" and a "column" in the spinal cord. A horn is gray matter and they form inner butterfly A column is white matter and they lie on outside of spinal cord 12. Explain which portion of the spinal cord is the location for the major nerve tracts, and discuss their significance. Ascending tracts are sensory : lie primarily in posterior white columns Descending are motor: lie primarily in anterior white columns 13. Compare and contrast ascending and descending tracts. See #12 above 14. Discuss the general characteristics of nerve tracts. They are conduits for nerve impulse to and from the brain; cross-over at some point in spinal cord; are composed of 2-3 interneurons in sequence. 15. Discuss the features located on the periphery of the spinal cord in cross-section. PNS: Dorsal Root Ganglion (cell bodies of sensory neurons) leading to dorsal root into Posterior white columns in SC; ventral root leading away from Anterior white columns. Fusion of dorsal root and ventral root = spinal nerve. 16. Define the term ganglion and discuss the specificities of a dorsal root ganglion. A ganglion is a bundle of cell bodies outside in PNS. 17.

Identify the composition of the bulk of the cerebrum. The cerebral medulla is composed of white matter; and the cerebral cortex is composed of gray matter. 11-6

7 CHAPTER 11: NERVOUS II: DIVISIONS OF THE NERVOUS 24. Define the term cerebral cortex and discuss its composition and significance. The outer cerebral cortex is composed of gray matter = bundles of cell bodies in CNS These cell bodies serve as the destination site for all incoming sensory impulses and the initiation site for all outgoing motor impulses. 25. Compare the major functional areas (sensory and motor) of the cerebral cortex in terms of location and function (a diagram may help here). Frontal Primary motor cortex initiates all motor impulses to skeletal muscles; Broca s Area in left frontal lobe controls muscles of speech Parietal cortex general sensation Occipital cortex sense of vision Temporal cortex sense of hearing 11-7
