    The structure of the brain is constantly changing from birth throughout the lifetime. It states that as our brain ages we start to lose our memory, retrieve new information etc. Also, people usually who are above age sixty an experience in cognitive decline, for example: weaken memory loss, decision making, social skills, remembering, paying attention, problem solving, and unclear thoughts. The experience of cognitive and memory loss as aging affects our daily routine and can impact out…

  • The Peripheral Nervous System

    spinal nerves. Nerves — that are created of special cells referred to as neurons. Neurons are comprised of a nerve fibre, a cell body and an axone. Impulses travel to the nerve fibre into the cell body so onto the axone. A special sheath referred to as myelin, that will increase the the conductivity of the neuron, covers some…

  • Early Childhood Playgrounds

    Playgrounds can be found all over neighborhoods, towns, and schools and provide an excellent way for children in early and middle childhood to develop and work on physical growth in a safe way. Children go through a sensitive period which is a point in development when organisms are susceptible to stimuli in their environments (Feldman, 2017). Gross and fine motor skills are able to be developed further through play in an environment such as parks and are different for children in the early and…

  • Natural Human Learning Process Essay

    How The Natural Human Learning Process Affects Us The Natural Human Learning Process is very important in our everyday lives; everything we learn during our day is affected by the Natural Human Learning Process. According to Rita Smilkstein there are six steps to the Natural Human Learning Process which affect our learned skills. Our learned skills are stored in our neurons which are easiest to remember if you think of it as a tree in our dendrites. What causes our dendrites to grow is the…

  • Essay On Human Nervous System

    The human nervous system is our electrical wiring of the body that transmits signals between different parts of the body. It has two components; the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The nervous system is an intricate part of your body and life that 's made up of two separate systems, the brain, and spinal cord. During prenatal growth, the nervous system experiences many changes to gain its compound structure. The events of this early development include the…

  • Discuss What A Neuron Is And The Functions Of The Brain Essay

    1. Discuss what a neuron is and the functions of its basic parts (dendrites, soma, axon, myelin sheath). A neuron is a nerve cell. There are about 10,000 specific types of neurons, but there are three most common neurons: sensory, motor, and interneurons. A sensory neuron sends signals to help your brain understand what is going on around you in your environment. Sensory neurons are what make up your senses, (smell, touch, see, taste, and hear.)…

  • Motor, Sensory, And Interneurons And Three Types Of The Brain

    1. There are 3 types of neurons. Motor, sensory, and Interneurons. The main parts of the neuron are dendrites, the soma, the axon, the axon terminal, the synapse, and the myelin sheath. The dendrites are branch like bushy extensions that receive the information and conduct impulses towards the cell body. The soma, or cell body, makes sense of the information and works It out. It also triggers the action potential and all or nothing response. The axon is a neuron’s extension that sends messages…

  • Central Nervous System (CNS)

    1. Distinguish between afferent and efferent nerves. Afferent nerves are the sensory nerves. They carry information from the world to the brain and spinal cord. Efferent nerves are the motor nerves they carry information out of the brain and spinal cord to other parts of the body. Afferent nerves take in information and efferent nerves carry out information. 2. Study Figure 2.1. What makes up the Central Nervous System (CNS)? The central nervous system is made up of the brain and…

  • Building New Pathways Of The Brain

    Building New Pathways In The Brain It was once commonly accepted that a person’s brain ceased to change after reaching adulthood. Science believed that each part of the brain had its own specific function, and if a certain part was completely damaged, nothing could be done about it. This led to a belief that treatment for many brain conditions was impractical and unjustified, or that even changing our character was unfeasible. But new discoveries in neuroscience have shown that the brain is…
