The neurons and neurotransmitters make up PNS and CNS. The autonomic nervous system is the nervous system that you do not have control of. The following video will now take you through the autonomic nervous system:

  1. What type of neurons are the autonomic nervous system made up of (circle one)? Efferent/afferent
  2. These neurons innervate what types of structures?


  1. Why the autonomic nervous system is called autonomic?


  1. Name the two subsystems of the autonomic NS:


  1. Compare the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS)


  1. What phrases did Khan use to help you remember how/when these two systems work


  1. Use one example of SNS and one example of PNS:


Different types of senses bring the body information about its environment. Khan explains the peripheral somatosensory at:

  1. List the types of somatosensations in the body


  1. Define mechanoreceptors, nociceptors, thermoreceptors


  1. Describe the anatomy of nociceptors and thermoreceptors


  1. Are somatosensory neurons afferent/efferent (circle one)
  2. Compare mechanoreceptor neurons with the nociceptor and thermoreceptor neurons; how do touch receptors compare?

Now for the fascinating story of reflexes. For this you will view:

  1. Define a reflex:


  1. What are the two parts of a reflex


  1. Name the most medically useful reflex


  1. Name the receptors within the muscles


  1. Name the afferent neurons


  1. Efferent neurons are called


  1. Explain, in your own words, how a reflex happens


After learning about all the anatomy and physiology of the brain, it looks like it only controls the body. As we all know, there is much more to our nervous system than that. In the following video you will learn about the limbic system – the heart of our emotions.

  1. Using the hippo cartoon, name the parts of the limbic system:


  1. How many thalamus’s are in the brain?


  1. What is the function of the thalamus?


  1. What is the function of the amygdala?


  1. When you stimulate the amygdala, it causes


  1. When the amygdala is destroyed (Kluver-Bucy’s syndrome) what happens?


  1. What is the function of the hippocampus –


  1. What is the function of the hypothalamus –
