The Nervous System The Endocrine System The Brain
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.
Network of neurons Neurons – cells that specialize in receiving and transmitting information through the body Split into Central and Peripheral Nervous System
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
Biochemical substances that stimulate or suppress other neurons Imbalances can cause major disorders Ex: Dopamine, Serotonin
Made up of the brain and the spinal cord
Connects the Central nervous system to the rest of the body Split into Autonomic and Somatic Nervous Systems
Part of Peripheral Nervous System Sends messages to internal organs Coordinates functions of internal organs Ex: respiration or digestion
Part of Peripheral Nervous System Send messages to body’s muscles This is what allows you to text
Endocrine glands release hormones into the bloodstream where they affect a wide array of bodily functions and behaviors They coordinate with the nervous system
Hypothalamus- part of the brain that directs activity in the endocrine system.
Pituitary gland (master gland) – receive messages from the hypothalamus to stimulate or inhibit the release of other glands hormones

Using pg. 57 in the text
Thyroid Issues: Underactive – lack of energy, weight gain, dry skin or hair Overactive- Increased nervousness, rapid heart beat, weightloss
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
Students should separate into pairs and choose one person to be the observer.
Involved left hemisphere functions (verbal, math, analytic) Trend- eye movements to the right when processing the question
Involved right hemisphere functions (nonverbal, spatial, holistic) Trend – eye movement to the left from processing
