Chapter-01 Introduction to Nervous System by Shyamkishore K, Rajgopal Lakshmi, Bhuiyan Pritha S (2014) Edition : 9/e
DOI:10.5005/jp/books/12211_1      

This chapter discusses nervous system. The human body consists of numerous tissues and organs, which are diverse in structure and function, yet they function together and in harmony for the well-being of the body as a whole. The peripheral nerves include those that supply skin, muscles, and joints of the body wall and limbs, and those that supply visceral st... [More]

Chapter-02 Neuronal Contacts by Shyamkishore K, Rajgopal Lakshmi, Bhuiyan Pritha S (2014) Edition : 9/e
DOI:10.5005/jp/books/12211_2      

This chapter discusses neuronal contacts. Neurons make connections with other neurons within the central nervous system (CNS) or outside the CNS. Neurons also make connections with effector organs like muscles and glands and with the sensory receptors in the periphery. Sites of junction between neurons are called as synapses. A synapse transmits an impulse o... [More]

Chapter-03 Meninges and Blood Supply of Brain by Shyamkishore K, Rajgopal Lakshmi, Bhuiyan Pritha S (2014) Edition : 9/e
DOI:10.5005/jp/books/12211_3      

This chapter discusses meninges and blood supply of brain. The brain and the spinal cord are covered by three layers of meninges; the outermost toughest layer is known as dura mater, the next layer is known as arachnoid mater and the innermost thin layer is known as pia mater. In the cranial cavity, the dura mater covering the brain almost fuses with the end... [More]

Chapter-04 Development of Central Nervous System by Shyamkishore K, Rajgopal Lakshmi, Bhuiyan Pritha S (2014) Edition : 9/e
DOI:10.5005/jp/books/12211_4      

This chapter discusses development of central nervous system. The whole of the nervous system is derived from ectoderm of the embryo, except its blood vessels and some neuroglial elements. The part of the ectoderm that is destined to give origin to the brain and spinal cord is situated on the dorsal aspect of the embryonic disk, in the midline and overlies t... [More]

Chapter-05 Spinal Cord – External Features by Shyamkishore K, Rajgopal Lakshmi, Bhuiyan Pritha S (2014) Edition : 9/e
DOI:10.5005/jp/books/12211_5      

This chapter discusses external features of spinal cord. The spinal cord or the spinal medulla is the most important content of the vertebral canal and in adults, it occupies only the upper two-thirds of the vertebral canal. It begins as a downward extension of medulla oblongata at the level of the upper border of the first cervical vertebra (C1) and extends... [More]

Chapter-06 Spinal Cord – Internal Features by Shyamkishore K, Rajgopal Lakshmi, Bhuiyan Pritha S (2014) Edition : 9/e
DOI:10.5005/jp/books/12211_6      

This chapter discusses internal features of spinal cord. Internally, spinal cord shows grey matter surrounded by white matter. In transverse section the grey matter of the spinal cord forms an H-shaped or a butterfly shaped mass. In the thoracic and the sacral parts of the spinal cord, a small lateral projection of grey matter is seen between the ventral and... [More]

Chapter-07 Brainstem – External Features by Shyamkishore K, Rajgopal Lakshmi, Bhuiyan Pritha S (2014) Edition : 9/e
DOI:10.5005/jp/books/12211_7      

This chapter discusses external features of brainstem. The brainstem consists of the midbrain, pons, and medulla from above downwards. Superiorly, the brainstem is continuous with the structures forming the forebrain—thalamus, hypothalamus, and cerebral hemispheres. Posteriorly, the pons and medulla are separated from the cerebellum by the fourth ventricle. ... [More]

Chapter-08 Brainstem – Internal Features by Shyamkishore K, Rajgopal Lakshmi, Bhuiyan Pritha S (2014) Edition : 9/e
DOI:10.5005/jp/books/12211_8      

This chapter discusses internal features of brainstem. The arrangement of grey and white matter in the lowermost part of medulla is similar to that of spinal cord. However, above this, its internal structure changes gradually. The change in the arrangement of grey and white matter in the upper part of the medulla is mainly due to the presence of the fourth v...

Chapter-09 Cranial Nerves – Nuclei and Functional Components by Shyamkishore K, Rajgopal Lakshmi, Bhuiyan Pritha S (2014) Edition : 9/e
DOI:10.5005/jp/books/12211_9      

This chapter discusses cranial nerves. Cranial nerves, in addition, supply muscles of pharyngeal arches, and carry visceral and somatic special senses, making a total of seven functional components. In the embryo, the nuclei related to the various components are arranged in vertical rows in a definite sequence in the grey matter related to the floor of the f... [More]

Chapter-10 Pathways of Special Senses by Shyamkishore K, Rajgopal Lakshmi, Bhuiyan Pritha S (2014) Edition : 9/e
DOI:10.5005/jp/books/12211_10      

This chapter discusses pathways of special senses. The peripheral end organ for smell is the olfactory epithelium that lines the upper and posterior parts of the nasal cavity. Nerve fibres arising in this mucosa collect to form about twenty bundles that together constitute an olfactory nerve. The bundles pass through foramina in the cribriform plate of the e... [More]
