1

Nervous Tissue

-the master integrating and coordinating system
-monitors and processes sensory info
-divided into central nervous system and peripheral nervous system

2

Central Nervous System

card image

-consists of brain and spinal cord

3

Peripheral Nervous System

card image

-includes all nervous elements located outside the central nervous system
*ex: nerves, sensory receptors, and some cluster of nerve cells

4

Nervous Tissue

card image

-made up of neurons and neuroglia cells

5

Neuroglia/ Glial Cells

card image

-serves the needs of the delicate neurons by bracing and protecting them
CNS: astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, microglial cells, and ependymal cells
PNS: Schwann cells and satellite cells

6

Microglial Cells

card image

-acts as phagocytes

7

Oligodendrocytes & Schwann Cells

card image

-myelinate the cytoplasmic extensions of the neurons

8

Astrocytes

card image

-play a role in capillary-neuron exchanges and control the chemical environment around neurons

9

Neuron/Nerve Cells

-basic functional units of nervous tissue
-transmit messages from one part of the body to another in the form of nerve impulses

10

Cell Body of Neuron

card image

-slender processes extend
-both the biosynthetic center of the neuron and part of its receptive region
-make up the gray matter of the CNS and form clusters there called nuclei and ganglia in PNS
-contains a large round nucleus surrounded by cytoplasm

11

Nuclei

card image

-cluster of neuron cell bodies in CNS

12

Ganglia

-cluster of neuron cell bodies in PNS

13

Two structures found in the cytoplasm

Neurofibrils and Chromatophilic Substance

14

Neurofibrils

card image

-provide support for the cell and a means to transport substances throughout the neuron

15

Chromatophilic Substance/Nissl Bodies

card image

-an elaborate type of rough endoplasmic reticulum involved in the metabolic activities of the cell

16

Two Types of Neuron Processes.

1.Dendrites
2.Axons

17

Dendrites

card image

-receptive regions that bear receptors for neurotransmitters released by the axon terminals of other neurons

18

Axons/Nerve Fibers

card image

-form the impulse generating and conducting region of the neuron
-the white matter of the nervous system

19

Tracts

-bundles of axons in the CNS

20

Nerves

-bundles of axons in PNS

21

Neurons may have several dendrites, but they only have a single _____________.

Axon

22

Axon Collaterals

card image

-branch off of the main axon forming more processes

23

Axon Hillock

card image

-conical area of origin of the axon from the nerve cell body

24

Axon Terminals

card image

club-shaped endings by which axons make synaptic contacts with other nerve cells or effector cells
-stores the neurotransmitter chemical in tiny vesicles

25

Synaptic Cleft

card image

- a narrow extracellular cleft between the presynaptic and postsynaptic membranes

26

Neuromuscular Junction

card image

-specialized synapses between neurons and skeletal muscles

27

Myelinated Fibers

card image

-long nerve fibers that are covered by fatty material (myelin)

28

Axons in the PNS are typically heavily myelinated by special supporting cells called ______________.

card image

Schwann Cells

29

Schwann Cells

card image

-wrap themselves tightly around the axon in jelly roll fashion, this wrapping is the myelin sheath

30

Nodes of Ranvier

card image

-gaps or indentations in the myelin sheath

31

Within the CNS myelination is accomplished by neuroglia called ________________.

Oligodendrocytes

32

Unipolar Neurons

card image

-one very short process which divides into peripheral and central processes, extends from cell body

33

Bipolar Neurons

card image

-have two processes attached to the cell body
-rare

34

Multipolar Neurons

card image

-many processes

35

Sensory (Afferent) Nerves

card image

- conduct impulses only toward the CNS

36

Motor (Efferent) Nerves

card image

-carry impulses only away from the CNS

37

Mixed Nerves

-nerves carrying both sensory and motor fibers

38

Endoneurium

card image

-delicate connective tissue enveloping individual nerve fibers

39

Perineurium

card image

-sheath of connective tissue enclosing a bundle of nerve fibers
-forming fascicles

40

Epineurium

card image

sheath of connective tissue around all fascicles of nerve fibers
