Difficulty with nervous system

  1. 0
    I'm having a tough time trying to retain 3 chapters of the nervous system into my brain. Can anyone suggest useful learning tools or websites that will help me ace this test? I have a C average right now but I'm hoping to do well on the next two exams and pull it up to a B.

    Are you having specific problems with the nervous system - such are leaving the cranial nerves - or are you allowing yourself to become overwhelmed by the idea of learning the information of 3 chapters?

    More with the processes. Like how the csf is produced and how it travels through the brain into the spinal cord for example

    Watch Dr. Leslie Samuels' videos on YouTube (look for Interactive-Biology or under his name). Also, look at Khan Academy.

    Did you memorize the mnemonic to help you remember the cranial nerves & type of nerve?

    List of mnemonics for the cranial nerves - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This is what my professor said about the flow of CSF, but you may want to check with your professor to see if this is what they are looking for. Specialized, large ependymal cells produce the CSF in the choroid plexus of the lateral ventricles. From there ciliated ependymal cells move the CSF through the 4th ventricle and through the mesencephalic aqueduct to the subarachnoid space where it circulates in the central canal and is picked up by the superior sagittal sinus to be reabsorbed into the bloodstream through the jugular foramen in the jugular vein.
