APPLIED ANATOMY AND KINESIOLOGYChapter 10 Sort-of:Anatomy and Physiology of Nervous Tissue
What is this for?Why understand neurological anatomy?Provides for the mechanism by which skeletal muscle is controlledProvides for a comprehensive understanding of how the body actually functionsProvides for a time filler for the rest of the semester…..NO…Not really!
Neurological AnatomyNeurons: a cell that receives stimuli and transmits action potentials
Neurological AnatomyNeuroglia: Non-neurological cells; provide support and assistances
Neurological AnatomyThree Distinct Divisions of a Neuron/Nerve Cell#1. Cell Body: Houses the Nucleus
Neurological AnatomyThree Distinct Divisions of a Neuron/Nerve Cell#2. Dendrite: branching neurological receptors that branch off of the cell body
Neurological AnatomyThree Distinct Divisions of a Neuron/Nerve Cell#3. Axon: longitudinal axial segment that conducts an impulse away from the cell body
Neurological AnatomyExamples of Neuroglia: non-neurological cellsSchwann Cells: Insulator cells that insulate the axon
Neurological AnatomyExamples of Neuroglia: non-neurological cellsNodes of Ranvier: gaps between the Schwann cells
Neurological AnatomyCentral Nervous System: (CNS)Brain and Spinal Cord
Neurological AnatomyPeripheral Nervous System: (PNS)Everything other than the brain and spinal cord
