Spinal Cord A cross-section of the spinal cord looks like a gray butterfly surrounded by white. What does the gray matter consist of? – What does the white matter consist of ? w What is a nerve? Differentiate between a cranial nerve and a spinal nerve. How many pairs of cranial nerves do we have? How many spinal nerve pairs? The Brain The brain is where decisions are reached and where body activities are directed and coordinated. The brain receives action potentials, integrates the signals, and generates a response. Specialized areas in the brain integrate different types of information or perform specific motor tasks. 2. 3. 2. The Brain can be divided into 4 main regions. The 4 main regions and their functions are: 1. _seat of perception and thought 2. _: controls balance, muscle movement, and coordination 3. : processes information, maintains homeostasis, releases hormones. relay station for nerve impulses entering brain, reflex center of brain, important in homeostasis-controls heartbeat, respiration, swallowing 4. The nervous and endocrine systems are similar in that they both function in communication within the body and help to control and integrate bodily functions and maintain homeostasis through negative feedback. While these two systems are similar in their general function, they are very different in their structural and functional specifics. The nervous system is composed mainly of nerves and communicates via nerve impulses along those nerves. Nerve impulses are actually a type of electrochemical signal. In general, nerve impulses are rapid and their effects are of short duration. On the other hand, the endocrine system consists mainly of glands that produce hormones which are purely chemical signals transported via the blood. In general, hormonal signals are slower than nerve impulses and their effects are of longer duration Complete the following charts: Similarities Nervous system indocrine system Function Homeostatic control mechanism Differences Nervous system Endocrine system Mainly composed of Type of communication (Electrical or chemical) Mode of communication (Nerve impulses or hormones Transport system for signals Speed of response to signal Duration of response
