Produces a very basic image of brain
structure

What is a CAT Scan?


200
Displays brain wave activity

What is an EEG?
300
Uses a glucose-based dye to display brain
functioning

What is a PET scan?
400
Gives the most detailed picture of brain
structure

What is MRI?
500
Gives most detailed pictures of brain
functioning

What is fMRI?
100
Name for the chemicals that diffuse across
the synapse.

What are neurotransmitters?
200
Receivers of the Neuron

What is a dendrite?
300
This type of neuron takes information to
the Central Nervous System.

What is a sensory (afferent) neuron?
400
Electrical impulses that are generated on
the membrane of the neurons axon.

What is the action potential?
500
sudden change in electrical potential from
negative to slightly positive thus creating
action potential

What is depolarization?
100
Its function deals with mood. Low levels
have been liked to depression.

What is Serotonin?
200
Its function deals with emotion and
movement. High levels have been linked
to Schizophrenia.

What is Dopamine?
300
Its function deals with short term memory
and muscular activation. Those with
Alzheimers disease have low levels.

What is Acetylcholine?
400
Inhibitory Neurotransmitter.

What is GABA?
500
Morphine is a drug that has a similar
function as these naturally occurring
hormones.

What are Endorphins?


100
Contains the Brain and Spinal Cord.

What is the Central Nervous System
(CNS)?
200
Fight or Flight Nervous System.

What is Sympathetic?
300
Parasympathetic Nervous Systems effect
on heart rate.

What is slowing of the heart rate?
400
The two main types of Peripheral Nervous
System Neurons differentiate between
the two!

What is Sensory (Afferent) and Motor
(Efferent)?
500
Name four things that happen to the boy
upon the initiation of the Fight or Flight
response.


100
This transmits an electrical signal from the
cell body to the terminal buttons.

What is an Axon?
200
The formal name for the cell body.

What is the soma?
300
Gaps in the Myelin Sheath.

What are Nodes of Ranvier?
400
The brain of the Neuron

What is the Nucleus?
500
The time period between action potential
and resting potential.

What is the Refractory Period?
100
A tamping iron went through the frontal
lobe of this neuroscience pioneer.

Who was Phineas Gage?
200
The nervous system responsible for
conscious muscle movement.

What is the Somatic NS?
300
Small gap separating neurons.

What is a synapse?
400
If the stimulus is any strength above
threshold, the nerve or muscle fiber will
give a complete response or otherwise no
response at all.

What is the All or None Principle?
500
Fatty lipid found on axon.

What is the Myelin Sheath?
