 Synonyms & Historicals
Nervous System .
Nervous Systems .
System, Nervous .
Systems, Nervous .
The entire nerve apparatus, composed of a central part, the brain and spinal cord, and a peripheral part, the cranial and spinal nerves, autonomic ganglia, and plexuses. (Stedman, 26th ed) .
Central Nervous System .
Cerebrospinal Axis .
Axi, Cerebrospinal .
Axis, Cerebrospinal .
Central Nervous Systems .
Cerebrospinal Axi .
Nervous System, Central .
Nervous Systems, Central .
System, Central Nervous .
Systems, Central Nervous .
The main information-processing organs of the nervous system, consisting of the brain, spinal cord, and meninges. .
Enteric Nervous System .
Enteric Nervous Systems .
Nervous System, Enteric .
Nervous Systems, Enteric .
System, Enteric Nervous .
Systems, Enteric Nervous .
Two ganglionated neural plexuses in the gut wall which form one of the three major divisions of the autonomic nervous system. The enteric nervous system innervates the gastrointestinal tract, the pancreas, and the gallbladder. It contains sensory neurons, interneurons, and motor neurons. Thus the circuitry can autonomously sense the tension and the chemical environment in the gut and regulate blood vessel tone, motility, secretions, and fluid transport. The system is itself governed by the central nervous system and receives both parasympathetic and sympathetic innervation. (From Kandel, Schwartz, and Jessel, Principles of Neural Science, 3d ed, p766) .
Nervous System Neoplasms .
Nervous System Tumors .
Tumors of the Nervous System .
Neoplasm, Nervous System .
Nervous System Neoplasm .
Nervous System Tumor .
Tumor, Nervous System .
Tumors, Nervous System .
Neoplasms, Nervous System .
Benign and malignant neoplastic processes arising from or involving components of the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems, cranial nerves, and meninges. Included in this category are primary and metastatic nervous system neoplasms. .
Sympathetic Nervous System .
Nervous System, Sympathetic .
Nervous Systems, Sympathetic .
Sympathetic Nervous Systems .
System, Sympathetic Nervous .
Systems, Sympathetic Nervous .
The thoracolumbar division of the autonomic nervous system. Sympathetic preganglionic fibers originate in neurons of the intermediolateral column of the spinal cord and project to the paravertebral and prevertebral ganglia, which in turn project to target organs. The sympathetic nervous system mediates the body's response to stressful situations, i.e., the fight or flight reactions. It often acts reciprocally to the parasympathetic system. .
