EQ: What are the different parts and functions of a neuron?


Bell Ringer: 1) How much does the human brain weigh?


2) Brain is about size of ???


3) What part of brain sets us apart from other species?


4) Two commonly
researched brain topics in 2010 other than concussions?


5) What part of neuron gets tangled in a concussion?


6) What approx. speed does info travel thru neural network?


7) part of neuron that sends out info = ___________


8) space between neurons = ____
________


9) part of neuron that carries info =____________________


10) part of neuron that picks up information=_________



Activating Strategy:


1) Relate neuron to a hardware system


2) Power point to illustrate diagram of items


3) Demos to illustrate

parts of neuron. Speed etc.


4) Two main parts of nervous system


5) Examples of refraction/action potential/resting period
