1 The Nervous System The Endocrine System The Brain

2 1. There are two types of ways your body communicates internally. They are… - Through the nervous system -Through the endocrine system 2. The nervous system usually generates your first, quick response. 3. Your endocrine system is run by your hormones which act as transmitters to the brain.



5  Network of neurons  Neurons – cells that specialize in receiving and transmitting information through the body  Split into Central and Peripheral Nervous System

6  The Nervous System  f9Y8wjg&feature=related&safety_mode=tru e&persist_safety_mode=1&safe=active f9Y8wjg&feature=related&safety_mode=tru e&persist_safety_mode=1&safe=active  Neurons and how they work:  dFG4&feature=related&safety_mode=true& persist_safety_mode=1&safe=active dFG4&feature=related&safety_mode=true& persist_safety_mode=1&safe=active


8  Biochemical substances that stimulate or suppress other neurons  Imbalances can cause major disorders  Ex: Dopamine, Serotonin


10  Made up of the brain and the spinal cord

11  Connects the Central nervous system to the rest of the body  Split into Autonomic and Somatic Nervous Systems

12  Part of Peripheral Nervous System  Sends messages to internal organs  Coordinates functions of internal organs  Ex: respiration or digestion

13  Part of Peripheral Nervous System  Send messages to body’s muscles  This is what allows you to text

14  Endocrine glands release hormones into the bloodstream where they affect a wide array of bodily functions and behaviors  They coordinate with the nervous system

15  Hypothalamus- part of the brain that directs activity in the endocrine system.

16  Pituitary gland (master gland) – receive messages from the hypothalamus to stimulate or inhibit the release of other glands hormones

18  Using pg. 57 in the text

19  Thyroid Issues:  Underactive – lack of energy, weight gain, dry skin or hair  Overactive- Increased nervousness, rapid heart beat, weightloss

20  Pancreas Issues:  Type 2 Diabetes  Pancreatitis ▪ Flu-like symptoms, Weight decrease, rapid pulse


22  Involved in complex mental processes  Separated into 4 lobes

23  Regulates coordinated movements

24  Sets brains alertness level and warning system

25  Pathway for neurons traveling to and from the brain

26  Manages body internal state


28  Regulate motor movement and cognitive abilities like planning and decision making  Personality  Motor Cortex- controls the body’s voluntary muscles  Motor speech area (Broca’s area)

29  Process sensory information like touch, temperature, body position and pain  Right half communicates with the left side of the body – Left half communicates with the right side of the body

30  Processes Sounds  Stores long term memories

31  Processes vision and sensations from the eyes  Color, movement, shape, shading, and face recognition

33 AREAS OF LEFT-HEMISPHERE DOMINANCE:  Verbal functions (for right-handers and most left-handers), including spoken and written use of language, as well as logical analysis, problem solving, and mathematical computation AREAS OF RIGHT-HEMISPHERE DOMINANCE:  Nonverbal functions, including understanding spatial relationships (as presented, e.g., in jigsaw puzzles or maps), recognizing faces and interpreting gestures, perceiving and expressing emotion, and appreciating music and art

34  1 volunteer

35  Students should separate into pairs and choose one person to be the observer.

36  Involved left hemisphere functions (verbal, math, analytic)  Trend- eye movements to the right when processing the question

37  Involved right hemisphere functions (nonverbal, spatial, holistic)  Trend – eye movement to the left from processing
