Basic Tasks of the Nervous System : Basic Tasks of the Nervous System Sensory Input: Monitor both external and internal environments. Integration: Process the information and often integrate it with stored information. Motor output: If necessary, signal effector organs to make an appropriate response. Slide 5: The Nervous System Slide 6: Nervous System A system that controls all of the activities of the body. The nervous system is made of: Slide 7: The nervous system also allows you to react to a stimulus. Stimulus A stimulus is a change in the environment. Example: A hot stove Or… tripping over a rock Slide 8: Your reactions are automatic. Automatic Automatic means that you do not have to think about your reactions. Example: If a bug flies by your eye, you will blink. Slide 9: Brain An organ that controls your emotions, your thoughts, and every movement you make. : Central Nervous System The Central Nervous System is made of the brain and the spinal cord. The Central Nervous System controls everything in the body. Slide 11: Outer Nervous System The Outer Nervous System is made of the nerves and the sense organs. Slide 12: Nerve Impulse Messages carried throughout the body by nerves. Slide 13: "Funny Bone" You have a nerve along your whole arm. The “funny bone” is the only place on the arm where the nerve is not protected. The “funny bone” is on the elbow. Slide 14: Cell body: functional portion Dendrites: short extensions that receive signals Axon: long extension that transmits impulses away Anatomy of a Neuron Nerve Impulse - The Action Potential : Nerve Impulse - The Action Potential Threshold potential will trigger an action potential or nerve impulse The action potential is an all-or-none response Myelinated Neurons : Myelinated Neurons Myelin sheathing allows these neurons to conduct nerve impulses faster than in non-myelinated neurons. Saltatory Conduction in Myelinated Axons : Saltatory Conduction in Myelinated Axons Myelin sheathing has bare patches of axon called nodes of Ranvier Action potentials jump from node to node Fig. 48.11 How does a signal move from one neuron to another? : How does a signal move from one neuron to another? A synape divides 2 neurons The action potential will not move across the synape Neuro transmitters Released by the signal cell to the receiver cell Move by diffusion Types of chemical synapse : Types of chemical synapse Acetylcholine: neuromuscular junctions, glands, brain and spinal cord Norepinepherine: affects brain regions concerned with emotions, dreaming Slide 21: The Nervous System The Central Nervous System Slide 22: The Central Nervous System * The Central Nervous System controls all of the body’s activities. * The Central Nervous System is made of two main organs. Slide 23: The Spinal Cord * The spinal cord sends messages to the brain. * The spinal cord is the part of the nervous system that connects the brain to the rest of the nervous system. Slide 24: The Brain * The brain controls everything in the body. * The brain is made of more than 10 billion nerves! * The brain is divided into three parts and is protected by the skull. Slide 25: The Three Parts of the Brain * The Brain has three main parts… 1. The Cerebrum 2. The Cerebellum 3. The Brain Stem Slide 26: The Cerebrum * The Cerebrum is the largest part of the brain. 1. The cerebrum controls your thinking. 2. The cerebrum controls your memory. 3. The cerebrum controls your speaking. 4. The cerebrum controls your movement and identifies the information gathered by your sense organs. Slide 28: The Cerebellum * The cerebellum is below and to the back of the cerebrum. Slide 30: The Brain Stem * The Brain Stem connects the brain to the spinal cord. * The nerves in the brain stem control your heartbeat, breathing, and blood pressure. Slide 32: The Vertebrae * The vertebrae are the many bones that protect the nerves in the spinal cord. Slide 33: The Outer Nervous System Slide 34: Outer Nervous System * The Outer Nervous System’s job is to connect the Central Nervous System to the rest of the body. * The outer nervous system carries messages between the central nervous system and the rest of the body. Slide 35: Outer Nervous System * The outer nervous system is made of the nerves and the sense organs. Slide 36: Reflex * An automatic reaction that happens without thinking about it. * A reflex happens quickly in less than a second. Slide 38: Automatic Nervous System * The outer nervous system controls the body’s activities that you don’t think about. * The outer nervous system controls activities in your small intestine, your breathing, and your heartbeat. Slide 40: The Senses Slide 41: Sense Organs Sense organs carry messages about the environment to the central nervous system. Slide 42: Sense Organs The eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and skin are examples of sense organs. The sense organs gather information (light, sound, heat, and pressure) from the environment. Slide 43: Environment The environment is everything outside the body. The sense organs gather information from outside the body, then send the messages to the brain. Slide 44: Vision Vision is your ability to see. Vision involves the eye and the brain. Parts of the Eye : Parts of the Eye Detectors on the Fovea Rods light intensity and motion sensitive Cones color sensitive The blind spot for the eye is cause by the optic nerve. Myopia (Near-Sightedness) : Myopia (Near-Sightedness) People with near-sightedness cannot see clearly at distance. Hyperopia (Farsightedness) : Hyperopia (Farsightedness) People with far-sightedness cannot see clearly up close Slide 51: Hearing When a sound is made, the air around the sound vibrates. Hearing starts when some of the sound waves go into the ear. Slide 52: Parts of the Ear There are nine main parts of the ear. 1. Pinna 2. Ear canal 3. Ear drum 5. Anvil 6. Stirrup 7. Cochlea 4. Hammer 8. Eustachian tube 9. Auditory nerve Slide 53: Parts of the Ear The ear canal is the tube between the outside of the ear and the ear drum. The ear drum is in the middle ear. It vibrates when sound waves hit it. The pinna is the part of the ear that you can see. Slide 54: Parts of the Ear The three smallest bones in the body, the hammer, the anvil, and the stirrup, are in the middle ear. The hammer gets the vibrations from the eardrum, then sends them to the anvil. The anvil passes the vibrations to the stirrup. The stirrup passes the vibrations to the inner ear. Slide 55: Parts of the Ear The inner ear is made of the cochlea and liquid. The cochlea is in the inner ear. The cochlea looks like a shell. The Eustachian tube controls the amount of pressure in the ear. The auditory nerve carries the hearing information to the brain and the brain tells us what we heard. Slide 56: The Ear and Balance The ear works with the brain to control your balance. All of your movements are controlled by balance and muscles. The liquid in your inner ear is responsible for your balance. The liquid in your ear moves when we move. The liquid movement sends information to the brain to tell it how we are moving. Slide 58: Touch The sense of touch is located in the skin. The nerves in the skin allow us to feel texture, pressure, heat, cold, and pain. Texture is how something feels. Slide 59: Smell The nose controls your sense of smell. The nose is able to smell 80 different kinds of smells. Slide 60: Your sense of taste comes from the taste buds in the tongue. Taste buds are the parts on the tongue that allow us to taste. The four kinds of taste buds are sweet, sour, bitter, and salty. Taste Slide 62: Flavors Tastes and smells work together to make flavors. Flavors are the tastes of food and drinks. Addictive Drug Use: Tobacco, Alcohol, & Illicit Drugs : Addictive Drug Use: Tobacco, Alcohol, & Illicit Drugs Dr. Robert B. Coambs Psy333 November, 2002 Pharmacology of Addictive Drugs : All addictive drugs produce: Short-term pleasure to some degree Long-term negative consequences Tolerance & physical dependence A withdrawal syndrome Activation of dopamine neurons in the Nucleus Accumbens Pharmacology of Addictive Drugs Transmission Across the Synapse : Source: Gray Transmission Across the Synapse How Drugs Become Addictive : How Drugs Become Addictive Detail of Axon Terminal : Detail of Axon Terminal Detail of the Synapse Itself : Neurotransmitter molecules (e.g., Acetylcholine or Dopamine) Postsynaptic membrane Detail of the Synapse Itself How binding sites work : Binding site How binding sites work Neurotransmitter re-uptake helps keep binding sites clear : Neurotransmitter re-uptake helps keep binding sites clear Cocaine inhibits the re-uptake of dopamine producing effects such as increased heart rate and blood pressure : Cocaine inhibits the re-uptake of dopamine producing effects such as increased heart rate and blood pressure Slide 72: Nicotine fills & activates acetylcholine binding sites producing effects such as increased heart rate and blood pressure What is Addiction? : What is Addiction? All definitions describe behaviour which produces positive sensations in the short term, but negative consequences in the long term A straightforward definition: Compulsive use Loss of control Use despite harm * Portnoy How People Start Using Drugs : How People Start Using Drugs Genetics Predisposing risk factors: Age 11-22 for onset Primitive character structures Especially Conduct Disorder Peer influence Parental influence Smoking and alcohol use Constricted temporal focus? Nicotine Use is Associated With Other Drug Use : Kozlowski, Coambs, et al., 1989 Nicotine Use is Associated With Other Drug Use Some People Never Start : Some People Never Start Factors which reduce risk: Age 35+ Nuanced character structures No Peer influence No Parental drug use history No other smoking or alcohol abuse E.G., the SISAP Basic Treatment For Addiction : Basic Treatment For Addiction Treat the urges directly, if possible Establish why the person uses the drug What needs are being fulfilled by that drug? Find methods to fulfil those needs without the drug How People Quit Drug Abuse : How People Quit Drug Abuse Most quit on their own (cold turkey) Most use no medication Probably those people who can quit easily do so Clinicians tend to see the difficult cases Ambivalence is normal Most quit by age 40 Relapse Prevention : Relapse Prevention Plan for relapse: Abstinence Violation Effect Relapse is common: it is not failure! Repeated relapse is associated with success in quitting Learn from it in next attempt Find a way to control urges You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
