This listing for Human Anatomy and Physiology features two different full-page study guides about the nervous system. In the first study guide, students...
- Identify the divisions, components, functions/importance, and examples of the nervous system and its parts down to the cellular level.
- Compare and contrast all of the glial cells and the neurons (sensory, integrative, and motor).
- Map out a phonics strategy for remembering that sensory neurons are afferent and motor neurons are efferent.
- Identify the alternative name for a nerve impulse (action potential) and write out the three phases of a nerve impulse.
- Describe the physiology during the polarization, depolarization, and repolarization state.
- Fill in the missing words in a paragraph that explains the importance of saltatory conduction along the myelinated nerve fibers.
In the second study guide, students...
- Use words in a word bank to explain how a nerve signal crosses a synaptic cleft (synapse).
- Map out the names and key functions of the lobes in the brain.
- Unscramble a word bank in the order of the highest state of wakefulness of the lowest state of wakefulness.
- Explain the timing of rapid eye movement.
- Identify the three layers of protection for the nervous system.
- Contrast the dura mater from the pia mater.
- Match the description of the nervous system disorder to the proper term.
There are twenty-five questions in the first study guide and twenty-eight questions in the second study guide.
This document is editable. It includes a two full-page keys with the answers in red and blue font. I offer dozens of quality field-tested, innovative, practical, and user-friendly science products for several fields of science - biology, chemistry, field ecology, physical science, earth science, and human anatomy and physiology.
I began launching my curriculum through TpT in 2018. I have over twenty years of teaching and curriculum writing experience as the department head. I joined TpT with seventeen years of publishing experience through several international science supply corporations.
