The basic function of the nervous system depends on billions of tiny cells called neurons firing electrical impulses called action potentials . All of our very thoughts, emotions and actions can be boiled down into these 3 principle functions: OUR NERVOU S SYSTEM Our nervous system is a very complex and amazing system that controls everything in our bodies….the way we think, how we feel (like pain), what we see, hear or say, our healing process, and reactions and more…. all controlled by elec- trical impuls s that send signals to and fro our nerve cells. he basic function of the nervous system depends on billions of tiny cells called neurons firing electrical impulses called action potentials. All of our very thoughts, emotions and actions can be boiled down into these 3 principle functions: SENSORY There is a fly buzzing around your head Hearing, seeing, feeling INTERGRATION After you see the fly and hear it, you now decide what to do about it. Brain thinks and processes MOTOR OUTPUT It lands on your knee. You pick up your hand and slap your knee to shoooo that pesky fly away. Muscles react and respond CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM Consists of your brain and spinal cord Your brain tells your hand to shoooo the fly and your spinal cord orders your hand to move. PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM Consists of nerves from your brain and spinal cord Works in coordination so you pick up your hand and slap your knee to shoooo the fly away. HOW NEURONS WORK Think of your body like it is are filled with batteries that have Positive (+) and Negative (-) charges. Neurons are your batteries requiring an event to trigger the action to start the charge. Neurons respond to stimuli, they are irreplaceable with huge appe- tites and are the longest looped cells in your body. Our bodies have voltage, possess a current and are resistant. The neurons pass an electrical signal to another neuron or to the different cells through a structure called a synapse, a gap between the neurons. How Neurons Work Dendrites = receives messages Nucleus = cell’s brain Cell Body = contains the cell’s brain Myelin Sheath = insulation around nerve fibers Can be 3 feet long   Schwann’s Cells = keep fibers alive and healthy Node of Ranvier = speeds up impulse Axon Terminals = transmits impulses away to other neurons Think of your body like it is filled with batteries that have Posi- tive (+) and Negative (-) charges.
