Adderall

...  which is meant for enhancing the alertness and libido quantity in the body. It has been noticed by druggists, that the overall effect and mechanism of generic Adderall is very similar to that of cns stimulants. It is also known to contain amphetamine. Adderall XR consists of racemic amphetamine aspartate monohydrate, racemic amphetamine sulfate, dextroamphetamine saccharate and  ...

Tetanus

...  people think of as uncontaminated could cause tetanus. Thus, vaccination could be considered a very good preventive measure. The toxin that is released when the person is infected affects the human cns, or the central nervous system. Symptoms may differ, and it could go from almost unnoticed to extreme. How To Know If A Person Is Infected It is very best to subject the person to a physical  ...

Peripheral Ganglia

...  ganglia are a group of cells found in the Peripheral Nervous System or PNS. The PNS is found in the periphery of the Central Nervous System or cns. This exists outside the spinal cord and the brain and is not enclosed with any protective structure. The peripheral ganglia have the following characteristics: Major Function The major function of the peripheral ganglia is to connect the  ...

Axon

...  Without the axon, the neurons will not be able to perform their physiologic functions. These axons come in two types; the axons that render action potentials towards the central nervous system or cns, and those that conduct them away from the central nervous system. These are some significant parts related to the axon Related parts The axon hillock is where the axons leave the cell body.  ...

Neurolgia

...  system. Microglia - It aids in the debris removal that could be seen in the central nervous system. Astrocytes - They aid the molecules and cells to pass by between the central nervous system, or cns to the brain. Ependymal Cells - It provides the brain ventricles and spinal cord a lining. Ganglionic Gliocytes - It gives support to the cell bodies in the preipheral nervous system, or  ...

Neurons

...  also an axon for the conduction of the nerve pulse. All these types give support (functional and structural) to the other types. Together with neuroglia, they compose the basic cell structure in the cns, or the central nervous system. They are uniquely designed to respond to chemical releases and stimuli in an appropriate manner. They are also responsible for the impulses and the chemical  ...

Spinal Cord

...  spinal cord is a part of the central nervous system characterized by a long and thin bundle of tissues and cells that extends to the medulla. This and the brain make up the cns, or the central nervous system. Its length is extended to the space of the first and second lumbar vertebrae, but does not extend until the vertebral column. It is made up primarily of gray matter and is located in the  ...
