    Cell body: This main part has all of the necessary components of the cell, such as the nucleus (which contains DNA), endoplasmic reticulum and ribosomes (for building proteins) and mitochondria (for making energy). If the cell body dies, the neuron dies. Cell bodies are grouped together in clusters called ganglia, which are located in various parts of the brain and spinal cord. Anatomists take two general approaches to the study of the body’s structures: regional and systemic. Regional anatomy is the study of the interrelationships of all of the structures in a specific body region, such as the abdomen. Studying regional anatomy helps us appreciate the interrelationships of body structures, such as how muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and other structures work.

      Important Nerves in the Human Body and What They Do. Believe it or not, there are over 7 trillion nerves in the human body. All these nerves are part of what’s known as your body’s nervous system. You can think of nerves as your body’s electrical wiring — they transmit signals between your brain, spinal cord, and the rest of your body. The signals are flashed to and from the brain and also directly between body parts. The brain and spinal cord form the central nervous system, while the nerves that branch out throughout the body form the peripheral nervous system. There are 37 miles (60km) of nerves in the human body. Human Body › Brain and nerves ›.

    Welcome to the Human Body Theater, where your master of ceremonies is going to lead you through a theatrical revue of each and every biological system of the human body!Starting out as a skeleton, the MC puts on a new layer of her costume (her body) with each "act." By turns goofy and intensely informative, the Human Body Theater is always accessible and always entertaining. Start studying The Human Body in Health & Disease - Chapter 10 - The Nervous System: The Brain and Cranial Nerves. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools.

The pain from stubbing a toe. The enjoyment of watching a movie in a theatre. All the sensory details that one absorbs in life travel along the body’s own information superhighway called the nervous system.

Jul The nervous system allows us to move, feel, and think, and it is involved in nearly all of the functions of the human body. Nerves communicate signals between the brain and muscles, allowing us to move our hands and feet. This book discusses the development and organization of this diverse system, its functions, and potential injuries.

The most basic unit of the nervous system is the nerve cell, also called a neuron. Neurons consist of three parts: a dendrite, a cell body, and an axon, all of which function to transmit information in the form of electrical impulses or signals. Dendrites receive the signals, which then move to the cell body and travel until they reach the end.

The body’s own cooling system then takes over. Drops of perspiration pour from millions of tiny sweat glands in the skin. This is a major way in which our cooling system keeps our temperature down.

The human body has an automatic thermostat that takes care of both our heating and cooling systems, keeping body temperature at about 37°C (°F). The nervous system has two major parts: the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS).

The central system is the primary command center for the body, and is comprised of. Saphenous nerve: This nerve is a branch of the femoral nerve and runs down the medial portion of the leg to the medial part of the foot and innervates the skin on the medial side of the ankle and foot.

Medial plantar nerve: This branch of the tibial nerve runs between the abductor hallucis and flexor digitorum brevis in the foot. It innervates the skin of the medial side of the sole of the. Figure Nerve Plexuses of the Body There are four main nerve plexuses in the human body.

The cervical plexus supplies nerves to the posterior head and neck, as well as to the diaphragm. The brachial plexus supplies nerves to the arm. The lumbar plexus supplies nerves to the anterior leg. Nerves and their neurons (nerve cells) comprise the nervous system, which acts as a communication network for your body.

The occipital nerves are a group of nerves that arise from the C2 and C3 spinal nerves.[1][2] They innervate the posterior scalp up as far as the vertex and other structures as well, such as the ear.[2] There are three major occipital nerves in the human body: the greater occipital nerve (GON), the lesser (or small) occipital nerve (LON), and the third (or least) occipital nerve (TON).

The nervous system, essentially the body’s electrical wiring, is a complex collection of nerves and specialized cells known as neurons that transmit signals between different parts of the body. THE SPINAL NERVES There are 31 pairs of spinal nerves. • 8 cervical spinal nerves (C01–C08) • 12 thoracic spinal nerves (T01–T) • 5 lumbar spinal nerves (L01–L05) • 5 sacral spinal nerves (S01–S05) • 1 coccygeal spinal nerve (coccygeal nerve) Spinal nerves "peek out" from between the vertebrae, through spaces called foramina.

The history of anatomy extends from the earliest examinations of sacrificial victims to the sophisticated analyses of the body performed by modern scientists. The study of human anatomy can be traced back thousands of years, at least to the Egyptians, but the science of anatomy, as we know it today, did not develop until far development of the study of anatomy gradually built upon.

The central nervous system coordinates the functioning of all parts of the human body and is the largest part of the nervous system. It is enveloped by a set of membranes known as meninges that protect the brain and the spinal cord. demonstration tool. The Body Book T he human body is a complex living organism that takes in food generate heat in the body.

{The brain, spinal cord, and nerves make up the nervous system, which takes in information, allows communication within the body, and controls body functions.
