Anatomy and Cell Biology 3319 Lecture 2: lecture 2 neuroanatomy introduction 1
1:59 pm the brain has to control the body and all of our cognitive processes exam questions come for the ppts. Summary (functional neuroanatomy intro) nervous system is responsible for many simple and complex functions. Cns is comprised of the brain and spinal cord and is an integration and command center. Pns is made up of nerves and ganglia and is a communication link. Pns is made up of nerves and ganglia and is a communication link four major divisons of nervous system. 4. somatosensory: afferent information from the environment somatomotor: efferent commands out to skeletal muscles visceral sensory: afferent information from organs and blood vessels visceral motor: efferent output to the organs and blood vessels. Types of neurons summary cell body is in cns, axon leaves the cns, synapse in a ganglia -- visceral motor neuron. Schwann cell: forms myelin sheath in the pns.
