It releases norepinephrine, causing an increase in heart and respiratory rate, slows down the GI system, and dilates pupils. The sympathetic system also controls constriction of blood vessels.The parasympathetic system prepares the body for resting and digesting. It releases acetylcholine, which slows heart and respiratory rates, constricts pupils, and stimulates the GI system. It has no effect on most blood vessels.Impressive!25-*Neurologic TestingTypical neurologic examinationState of consciousness Reflex activity Speech patterns Motor patterns 25-*Diagnostic ProceduresLumbar punctureMagnetic resonance imaging (MRI)Positron emission tomography (PET) scan Cerebral angiographyComputerized tomography (CT) scan Electroencephalogram (EEG) X-ray25-*Cranial Nerve TestsOlfactory nerves (Cranial nerve I)Have patient smell various substancesCranial nerves III, IV, and VIHave patient track movement of fingerCranial nerve VHave patient clench teeth, feel jaw muscles25-*Cranial Nerve Tests (cont.)Cranial nerve VIICheck patient’s facial expressionCranial nerve XIIHave patient extend his tongue and move it from side to side25-*Reflex TestingAreflexiaAbsence of a reflexHyporeflexiaDecreased reflexHyperreflexiaStronger-than-normal reflex25-*Reflex Testing (cont.)

They are group of disorders referred to as nerve pain.TANSWER:Bravo!25-*In Summary25.1 The central nervous system is composed of the brain and spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system consists of the peripheral nerves located throughout the body. The peripheral nervous system is further divided into two distinct systems: the somatic and autonomic nervous systems.25.2 There are three separate types of neurons to carry out the functions of the nervous system. The afferent (sensory) nerves, the efferent (motor) nerves, and the interpretive interneurons that act as “interpreters” between the afferent and efferent nerves.25-*In Summary (cont.)25.3 All neurons are composed of a cell body, the shorter and more numerous dendrites that receive information for the cell body, and the longer axons that bring an impulse from the cell body to the dendrite of the next neuron.25.4 The function of a nerve impulse is the sending of information either from the CNS to the PNS or vice versa. At rest, a neuron is said to be in a polarized state, and when it responds to stimuli, depolarization takes place. Repolarization occurs after the electrical current (impulse) has passed. 25-*In Summary (cont.)25.5 A synapse is the space between the axon of one neuron and the dendrite of the next. At the end of each axon is the synaptic knob, which contains vesicles that produce neurotransmitters. These are released by the synaptic bulb to allow impulse transmission to continue to the next neuron.25.6 The blood-brain barrier is a layer of tightly woven capillaries that protects the delicate tissues of the CNS. This barrier prevents certain substances, such as various waste products and drugs, from easily crossing this barrier and entering the brain tissues25-*In Summary (cont.)25.7 The meninges, a triple-layered membrane protecting the brain and spinal cord, are composed of the following layers: The tough outer layer is the dura mater. The space between the cranium and the dura mater is called the epidural space. Below the dura mater is the subdural space. The middle layer is the arachnoid, and below it is the subarachnoid space, which contains cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The innermost layer is the pia mater.25-*In Summary (cont.)25.8 The spinal cord is continuous with the brain and consists of 31 spinal segments: 8 cervical 5 sacral 12 thoracic 1 coccygeal 5 lumbar The basic function of the spinal cord is to carry sensory information from the body to the brain and motor information from the brain to the muscles and glands of the body.25-*In Summary (cont.)25.9 Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is located within the subarachnoid space of the brain and within the central canal of the spinal cord. It cushions the brain and spinal cord. 25.10 A reflex is a predictable automatic response to a stimulus. A typical reflex flows as follows: Sensory receptors send information (impulse) to the interneurons, which in turn send the information on to the effectors of the motor neurons, producing a response.25-*In Summary (cont.)25.11 The cerebrum is the largest part of the brain and is divided into two hemispheres subdivided into four lobes: frontal, parietal, temporal and occipital. The diencephalon contains the thalamus and hypothalamus. The brain stem consists of three parts: the midbrain, pons, and medulla oblongata. The cerebellum is the final area of the brain.25-*In Summary (cont.)25.12 Twelve cranial nerves carry sensory information: Olfactory Optic Oculomotor Trochlear Trigeminal Abducens Facial Vagus Vestibulocochlear Glossopharyngeal Accessory Hypoglossal There are 31 pairs of spinal nerves, each except C1 innervating a dermatome. Refer to Figure 25.8 for a map of the spinal nerves.25-*In Summa
