3 What is the largest part of the brain called?

4 cerebrum

5 What part of the brain controls involuntary actions?

6 brain stem

7 What is the function of the corpus callosum?

8 It connects the left side of the brain to the right side of the brain.

9 What part of the brain controls balance?

10 cerebellum

11 What structure joins with the medulla to form the brain stem?

12 pons

13 Name the three types of neurons.

14 sensory, motor, and interneurons

15 What part of the neuron receives the message first?

16 dendrites

17 What part of the neuron carries the message away from the cell body?

18 axon

19 What part of the neuron releases the message?

20 axon tips (or axon terminals)

21 What type of neuron carries a message from the central nervous system to the effector?

22 motor neuron

23 What is the iris?

24 colored part of the eye

25 What is the outermost layer of the eye?

26 sclera

27 What is the innermost layer of the eye?

28 retina

29 What are the light sensitive receptor cells that help you to see colors?

30 cones

31 What helps to give the eye its round shape?

32 vitreous humor

33 What part of the ear acts as a funnel to catch sound waves?

34 external ear

35 What is the first structure of the ear to vibrate?

36 eardrum

37 Name the three smallest bones in the human body.

38 hammer, anvil, stirrup

39 What part of the inner ear helps to maintain balance and body position?

40 semicircular canals

41 What part of the inner ear helps with hearing and sends the vibrations to the auditory nerve?

42 cochlea

43 What is an automatic response of the body that occurs very rapidly and without conscious control?

44 reflex

45 Why does a reflex occur quickly and automatically?

46 The message bypasses the brain.

47 When the nervous system makes you feel thirsty, what body process is it helping you to carry out?

48 homeostasis

49 Why is the sensation of pain important?

50 It alerts the body to danger.

51 How does a nerve impulse move from the axon tips of one neuron to the dendrites of the next neuron?

52 It becomes a chemical in order to cross the synapse.

54 What is the touch outer covering of the brain called?

55 dura mater

56 A bruise-like injury to the brain is called a _________.

57 concussion

58 The ______ ____ supply blood flow to the brain.

60 What is the “master gland” that is located on the underside of the brain?

61 pituitary gland

62 What structure of the brain aids in smelling?

63 olfactory bulbs

64 What type(s) of neurons are found in spinal nerves?

65 sensory and motor neurons

66 What type of neurons are found only in the brain and spinal cord?

67 interneurons

68 What type of neuron receives a message from the receptor cells?

69 sensory neuron

70 Name the 5 structures that make up a neuron.

71 dendrites, cell body, nucleus, axon, and axon tips

72 State the 6 step path of a nerve impulse.

73 receptor, sensory neuron, interneuron, motor neuron, effector, muscle/gland

74 What is the function of the light sensitive receptor cells called rods?

75 They help you to see in dim light.

76 Which structure provides blood flow to the eye?

78 Which structure transports the nerve impulses of the eye to the brain?

79 optic nerve

80 Which structure controls the size of the eye’s opening?

81 iris

82 Which structure focuses incoming light?

83 lens

84 Which bone in the ear is the first to vibrate?

85 hammer

86 Which bone in the ear is the last to vibrate?

87 stirrup

90 Is hearing a physical or chemical sense?

91 physical

92 What is the tube-like structure that carries sound waves from the external ear to the ear drum?

93 ear canal

94 Which two senses are considered chemical senses?

95 smell and taste

96 Name the four divisions of the nervous system.

97 central, peripheral, autonomic, andsomatic
