Nervous System Poster

The brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system. The peripheral nervous system is made up of the sensory and motor nerves conneting the brain and spinal cord to the sense organs, glands, muscles, and the rest of the body.

Brain Matters - The Human Brain

Brain Matters - Simply stated, there's nothing simple about the human brain. Over millions of years, it has evolved from simple nerve bundles known as ganglia to the complex neural networks we have today.
Feeding the Brain - While it only accounts for about 2% of an adults total body weight, the human brain consumes about 30% of all oxygen taken in by the body.
Circle of Willis - The Circle of Willis is a set of arteries at the base of the brain which ensures that blood flow reaches the brain if one of the arteries is blocked of damaged.
What's on Your Mind?- The cerebral cortex, or "gray matter" is the outermost surface of the brain's cerebrum. Averaging 2mm to 6mm thick, the cerebral cortex has a grayish pink color due to a high concentration of cell bundles near the surface. The inner area known as "white matter" gets it color from myelin, an insulating material that surrounds the axoms.
Medulla Oblongata - Building Blocks.
Wiring the Body - the nervous system is a well-organized collection of nerve cells. Originating in the brain, these cells extend to all part of the body. Ganglia are enlarged areas on a nerve bundle which contain highly concentrated collections of cell bodies. From these ganglia extend axoms which carry electrochemical signals to the rest of the body.

Brain Facts- The Human Brain Poster

There are about one quadrillion synapses in the human brain. There are about one trillion glial cells in the human brain.
There are about 100 billion cells in the human brain.
There are about 13.5 million neurons in the human spinal cord.
A brain grows by 250,000 neurons in the human spinal cord.
A single neuron has up to 10,000 synapses.
Certain neural impulses can travel up to 250 miles per hour.

Brain Health - The Human Brain

You Are What You Eat!
Different Strokes
Use It or Lose It!
Brain Attack = Stoke
One-Way Trip
Play It Smart
Use Your Head! When people think about staying fit, brain health is usually a low priority. There are no gyms or tracks which exercise the brain, nor nutrition labels which forcus on brain healrth. But make no mistake, nearly every aspect of our daily routine has some impact on our brains. Like other parts of the body, the brain benefits from exercise and good nutrition And if not properly protected, the brain is potentially subject ot permanent damage from common activities or sports. While brain health may not seem "high profile" ignoring it can have a devastating and irreversible impact.

Knowing Neurons - The Human Brain Poster

Synaptic Actions
No Glials, No Glory
Axons - Transmit Signals, Dendrites - Receive Signals
Nifty Neurons - The human brain is made up of more than 100 billion nerve cells. These cells are classified as either neurons or glial cells, each of which has several varieties. Neurons are the fundamental unit of the nervous system; they transit electrochemical signals throughout the brain and body. They are similar in structure to other cells in the body, with the exception of the axons. Dendrites and other specialized structures that project out from the cell body. These features enable the neurons to send and receive information.
Neuroglia, or glial cells, are about ten times as numerous as neurons inside the brain. Unlike neurons, glial cells do not carry electrochemical signals. Instead, these cells provide structural support and maintenance for the neurons.
