Figure 2.8 The Central and Peripheral Nervous Systems Central vs. Peripheral Nervous Systems The peripheral nervous system - all parts of the nervous system found outside the skull and spinal column The central nervous system (CNS) consists of the brain and spinal cord

External Features The brain and spinal cord are surrounded by three protective membranes, the meninges : Dura mater Pia mater Arachnoid membrane lies between the other two, is filled with cerebrospin al fluid (CSF)

Central Nervous System Central nervous system: Consists of brain and spinal cord The brain is dominated by two cerebral hemisphere s. The cerebral cortex is the outermost layer of the cerebral hemispheres.

Cerebral Cortex The neocortex (aka cerebral cortex) is the substrate of most of our sensorimotor functions and cognitive operations Cortical regions are roughly divided into so-called sensory, motor and associative cortical regions Sensory: involved in processing sensory input. Motor: involved in generating motor responses. Associative: involved in cognitive operations that are intermediate between sensing stimuli and acting upon them.

Ventricles The lateral ventricle in each hemisphere is lined with the choroid plexus , a membrane that produces CSF (a salty water solution) CSF flows into the third ventricle then into the fourth ventricle where it exits to circulate over the brain and spinal cord

Deep Structures in Forebrain Basal ganglia: part of the motor system Thalamus: “relay” for sensory information into cortex Hypothalamus: hormones, rhythms, drives Limbic system: emotions, motivation

The Brain Forebrain Midbrain, pons and medulla oblongata Does not include the spinal cord, but of course, the medulla and spinal cord are continuous

Midbrain, Pons and Medulla Motor and sensory nuclei for head (neurons that receive information from sense organs in head and innervate muscles of head) Sleep-wake systems Control of breathing and heart Lots of nerve fibers connecting the spinal cord to the brain and the brain to the spinal cord (going in both directions)
