To understand the classification of the nervous system. Learning Objective 2
Background image of page 6
Classification of the nervous system The nervous system can be classified according to: 1. Function: Sensory NS Motor NS Integrative NS 2. Location Central NS (brain and spinal cord) Peripheral NS (all nerve tissue outside of brain/spinal cord)

1. Sensory function: a fferent pathways sense changes in internal or external environment via sensory receptors Sensory/afferent neurons do this 3. Integrative function: interneuron pathways analyze information and “make decisions” about response interneurons/association neurons do this majority of neurons are interneurons/association neurons 5. Motor function: e fferent pathways respond to stimuli with muscle or gland response motor/efferent neurons do this Example: Touching a hot stove Classification of the nervous system by function

1. Central nervous system (CNS) 2. Peripheral nervous system (PNS) 1. Somatic nervous system Voluntary To and from skeletal muscles 2. Autonomic nervous system Involuntary To and from glands/ smooth & cardiac muscle 1. Parasympathetic NS 2. Sympathetic NS 3. Enteric Involuntary NS of GI tract Function independently of ANS and SNS 12 pairs 31 pairs Classification of the nervous system with PNS breakdown
