Nervous tissue, present in both the CNS and PNS, contains two basic types of cells: neurons and glial cells. A glial cell is one of a variety of cells that provide a framework of tissue that supports the neurons and their activities.

Physiology of the nervous system by Fulton, John F.,Oxford University Press edition, in English - 2nd ed., rev. and : The other major category of ganglia are those of the autonomic nervous system, which is divided into the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.

The sympathetic chain ganglia constitute a row of ganglia along the vertebral column that receive central input from the lateral horn of the thoracic and upper lumbar spinal cord.

Topics covered include introduction to the nervous system, nervous tissue, myelin sheath, collections of nervous tissue, nervous system divisions, nerve impulses, the synapse and disorders. These questions are suitable for students enrolled in Human Anatomy and Physiology I or II or General Anatomy and Physiology or Advanced Anatomy and Physiology.

The nervous system is a very complex organ system. In Peter D. Kramer’s book Listening to Prozac, a pharmaceutical researcher is quoted as saying, “If the human brain were simple enough for us to understand, we would be too simple to understand it” ().That quote is from the early s; in the two decades since, progress has continued at an amazing rate within the.

Cells in the Nervous System. 1) Neurons - the functional cells of the nervous system. See below. 2) Neuroglia (glial cells) - Long described as supporting cells of the nervous system, there is also a functional interdependence of neuroglial cells and neurons. 1) Neurons. come in several varieties which we will cover shortly.

2) NeurogliaFile Size: 7MB. This book brings together extensive knowledge of the structure and cell physiology of the enteric nervous system and provides an up-to-date synthesis of the roles of the enteric nervous system in the control of motility, secretion and blood supply in the gastrointestinal tract.

Physiology and Human Anatomy Lecture Notes. This lecture note covers the following topics related to Physiology and Human Anatomy: Embryology and Development, Gestation and Parurition, Endocrine System, Glomerular Filtration Mechanism, Urine Production, Water Electrolytes, Digestive System, Cardiovascular System, Peripheral Nervous System, Blood Testing Procedure, Lymphatic System.

vous system, the autonomic nervous system (ANS) provides the neural control of all parts of the body except for skeletal muscles.

The ANS has the major responsibility to. The sympathetic nervous system (SNS) is one of the two divisions of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), the other being the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS), These systems largely work unconsciously in opposite ways to regulate many functions and parts of the body.

Colloquially, the SNS governs the "fight or flight" response while the PNS controls the "rest Author: Mark N. Alshak, Joe M Das. The nervous system has three basic functions: 1. Sensory function - to sense changes (known as stimuli) both outside and within the body.

For example the eyes sense changes in light and the ear responds to sound waves. Book: Anatomy and Physiology of Animals (Lawson) Nervous System Expand/collapse global location The neuron is the basic unit of the nervous system. It consists of a cell body with a nucleus, filaments known as dendrites and a long fibre known as the axonoften surrounded by a myelin sheath.

Nervous tissue, present in both the CNS and PNS, contains two basic types of cells: neurons and glial cells. A glial cell is one of a variety of cells that provide a framework of tissue that supports the neurons and their activities.

The neuron is the more functionally important of the two, in terms of the communicative function of the nervous system. The autonomic nervous system unconsciously regulates various internal functions (e.g., glands, smooth muscle, cardiac muscle), and has two main divisions. One division, called the __division, transmits nerve impulses via cranial nerves and sacral nerves and is responsible for relaxing the body by conserving energy, therefore explaining its.

An Introduction to the Study of the Nervous System covers topics about the minute structure and functions of the nervous system. The book discusses the minute and gross anatomy of the various parts of the nervous system; the degenerative and regenerative changes following section of the nerves; and the descending and ascending tracts of the spinal cord.

Physiology's classic text continues to uphold its rich tradition-presenting key physiology concepts in a remarkably clear and engaging manner. Guyton & Hall's Textbook of Medical Physiology covers all of the major systems in the human body, while emphasizing system interaction, homeostasis, and pathophysiology.

This very readable, easy-to-follow, and 5/5(4). Maintains Homeostasis by regulating the autonomic nervous system. Contains the body temperature center, thirst center, hunger center, and wake-up / sleep center and controls most of the endocrine system due to controlling the pituitary gland.

The parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) is one of the two functionally distinct and continuously active divisions of the autonomic nervous system (ANS).

It is in opposition to the other, the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). The parasympathetic nervous system predominates in quiet “rest and digest” conditions while the sympathetic nervous system Author: Jacob Tindle, Prasanna Tadi.

Auditory Physiology describes the functions of the ear and the auditory nervous system, using well-documented research work. This book explains the physiology of the ear, the general function of the auditory nervous system, and its anatomy.

This text also discusses in detail the neurophysiological basis for discriminating frequency and time. The enteric nervous system is sometimes considered part of the autonomic nervous system, and sometimes considered an independent system.

Sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions have complementary roles: the sympathetic division functions in actions requiring quick responses (fight or flight) and the parasympathetic division regulates actions.

Fresh, unstained nervous tissue can be described as gray or white matter, and within those two types of tissue it can be very hard to see any detail.
