Product Description
A comprehensive 102-slide PowerPoint presentation that introduces the anatomy, structure, function, pathways, and disorders of the body’s nervous system.

Designed to cover all topics for the Science Olympiad Anatomy event at the (B) level and nearly all (C) level.

Perfectly suitable for high school level biology as well as AP biology courses. Simply pick and choose your level of detail and hide the other slides!


- Role of the nervous system
- Nervous system divisions (CNS, PNS, somatic, autonomic, sympathetic, parasympathetic)
- Neuron anatomy
- Structural types of neurons (multipolar, bipolar, unipolar)
- Functional types of neurons (sensory, interneuron, motor)
- Glial cells
- CNS glial cells (oligodendrocytes, astrocytes, microglial cells)
- PNS glial cells (Schwann cells)
- Myelin sheath and nodes of Ranvier
- Nervous pathway
- Reflex pathway/arc
- Action potential
- Steps to the action potential (rest, depolarization, rising, falling, hyperpolarization)
- Absolute and relative refractory periods
- All-or-none rule
- Myelinated vs. unmyelinated neurons
- Synaptic transmission
- Neurotransmitters (acetylcholine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine, serotine, GABA)
