The Nervous System

1. Describe the structure and function of the nervous system. Choose and define at least 8 terms from your textbook describing the function of the nervous system. Be sure to underline the 8 terms from your textbook that you choose. Your response should contain a minimum of 150 words. (20 points)

2. Identify the major divisions and main subdivisions within the nervous system in a diagram of your choice. Then draft a response to how your diagram works together. Research may be necessary. Your response should contain a minimum of 150 words. (20 points)

3a. Explain how a nerve impulse passes along a neuron (8 points).

3b. Explain the process of syntactical transmission (the process in which the message goes from one cell to the next). (7 points).

3c. Research a chemical of your choice that can affect synaptic transmission. Examples of such chemicals that affect neurotransmission are methamphetamine, nicotine, alcohol, sarin gas, and soman gas. Be sure to indicate how neurotransmission is affected as well as short term and/or long term effects of the chemical. (10 points)

4. Identify and describe three disorders of the nervous system in a minimum of 200 words. What part of the nervous system does each disorder affect? Are each of the disorders treatable? What are the outcomes for the patient that have the disorder? (20 points)

5. Identify and briefly explain three methods used to assess the functions of the nervous system. Your response should contain a minimum of 100 words. (15 points)

Your responses will be submitted either as a Word document (.doc) or Adobe Reader file (.pdf). Each response should be clear and summarizing and meet the outlined objectives. Cite your sources using correct format and use only highly trusted resources from the Internet and your local library.
