Nerve Pathways Practice Sheet
The nervous system is a connection of many different (1) _____________________ (nerve cells).
These nerves form pathways that send messages all over the body, in many different directions. (2) ________
neurons detect specific kinds of environmental stimuli, (3) _____________________ connect different
neurons in the spinal cord and brain, and (4) _____________________ neurons are linked with muscles or
All motor-nerves-to-skeletal-muscle pathways and all sensory pathways make up the (5) ____________
nervous system. The remaining nerve tissue, which generally is not under conscious control, is collectively
known as the (6) _____________________ nervous system. The (6) nervous system is subdivided into two
parts: (7) _____________________ nerves, which respond in emergency situations, and (8) ______________
nerves, which oversee the restoration and maintenance of normal body functioning. The (9)
_____________________ consists of the brain and spinal cord, while all other nerves are in the peripheral
nervous system. A skull encloses the brain, and the vertebral column and (10) _______________ enclose and
protect the spinal cord.
