Chapter 14

  • Describe the basic functions of the nervous system (figure 14.2 & associated text)
  • Diagram theorganization of the nervous system as a reflex pathway (stimulus-->response)
    (figure 14.5, organization of the nervous system )
  • List the five types of glial cells (skip satellite cells) and briefly describe their structure, function, and location (figures 14.7, 14.9, table 14.4 )
  • Diagram the structure of a neuron and differentiate between the three structural types (figure 14.3, 14.4, table 14.3)
  • Describe the structure of a synapse (figure 14.14)
  • Describe the anatomy of a nerve (figure 14.6)

Chapter 15

  • Describe how the nervous system develops and list the fates of neural tube, neural crest, neural canal, and primary and secondary brain vesicles (figures 14.16, 15.2, table 15.1)
  • Identify the cranial meninges (figure 15.4)
  • Identify the ventricles of the brain and describe the production and circulation of CSF (figures 15.6, 15.8)
  • Differentiate between white matter and gray matter and define structural terms associated with the nervous system (figure 15.3, basic brain terminology, table 15.2)
  • Identify the lobes of the cerebrum and describe the basic functions associated with each (figure 15.10, 15.11, table 15.3)
  • Describe the location of the primary motor and somatosensory cortices and explain how body areas are mapped onto them (figure 15.12, why is the sensory homunculus so distorted?)
  • Briefly describe the location and major functions of the basal nuclei, thalamus, hypothalamus, brainstem, cerebellum, and the limbic system (figures 15.14, 15.16, 15.17, 15.18, 15.22, 15.23)
  • Identify the twelve cranial nerves by name and number and briefly describe the function of each (table 15.7)

Chapter 16

  • List the meninges of the spinal cord and describe their structure and arrangement (figure 16.2)
  • Describe the structure of a spinal nerve (figure 16.2)
  • Describe the arrangement of white and gray matter within the spinal cord (figure 16.4)
  • List the four major spinal nerve plexuses, the spinal nerves that contribute to each, and the general regions of the body that each plexus serves (figures 16.6, 16.8, 16.9, 16.10, 16.11)
  • Diagram a spinal reflex (figure 16.13)

Chapter 17

  • Identify the location of the posterior funiculus-medial lemniscal pathway (dorsal column pathway), the anterolateral pathway (spinothalamic tracts), and the lateral corticospinal tract in a cross section of the spinal cord (figures 17.1, 17.5)
  • List the type of information carried by each of the sensory pathways above and trace the path of ascending sensory information from the periphery to the somatosensory cortex (figures 17.2, 17.3, 17.6)
  • Trace the path of descending somatic motor information from the brain to the muscle (figure 17.6)
  • Given clinical symptoms (e.g. ability to move certain limbs, feel touch or pain in hands or feet, etc), predict the nature of spinal cord injuries (e.g. region of the spine, left or right side of cord, anterior or posterior side of cord, etc.) and given the nature of spinal cord injury, predict clinical symptoms. (Brown-Sequard syndrome, answers to Brown-Sequard questions)

Chapter 18

  • Compare and contrast the somatic and autonomic motor systems (table 18.1, motor pathways comparison)
  • Compare and contrast the two branches of the autonomic nervous system (figure 18.3, table 18.2)

Chapter 19

  • List the types of sensory receptors based on receptor distribution and modality of stimulus (table 19.1)
  • Describe the receptors of your somatic senses (table 19.1)
    • Tactile receptors (table 19.2)
    • Proprioceptors (figures 16.14, 16.15)
