BC: That is the nervous system. I hope you liked it!
FC: The brain
1: These are the parts of the brain | the main parts of the brain are the cerebellum the cerebrum the medulla-oblongata
2: This is a cell
3: These are the parts of the cell witch also contains the myelin sheath (my favorite one)
4: No two cells ever touch!
5: Although they all send messages to each other.
6: here is what the inside of a dendrite looks like
7: Frontal Lobe-dose the reasoning, planning, parts of speech, movement, emotions, and problem solving Parietal Lobe-dose the movement, orientation, recognition, perception of stimuli Occipital Lobe- dose the visual processing Temporal Lobe- dose the perception and recognition of auditory stimuli, memory, and speech
8: The cerebellum is involved in the coordination of voluntary motor movement, balance and equilibrium and muscle tone. It is located just above the brain stem and toward the back of the brain.
9: The spinal column supports the body and the skull; helps in standing upright; maintains the balance of the body. Permits flexible movement; helps in head and neck movements. It also allows the body to stretch, bend, lean and rotate. Protects the spinal cord as well as the internal organs like lungs, heart, etc., which are inside the rib cage. Provides base for attachment of muscles, ligaments and tendons. The bone marrow inside the bones of the spinal column produces red blood cells and stores
10: The medulla oblongata is the lower portion of the brainstem. It deals with autonomic functions like breathing and blood pressure. The cardiac center is the part of the medulla oblongata responsible for controlling the heart rate.
11: The neuron is the functional unit of the nervous system. Humans have about 100 billion neurons in their brain alone! While variable in size and shape, all neurons have three parts. Dendrites receive information from another cell and transmit the message to the cell body. The cell body contains the nucleus, mitochondria and other organelles typical of eukaryotic cells. The axon conducts messages away from the cell body.
