Note on Peripheral Nervous System
The peripheral nervous system consists of three systems of nerves.
- i) Cranial nerves
Cranial nerves travel between brain and various organs without passing through the spinal cord. They are sensory, motor or mixed nerves. They are associate with responses.
- ii) The Sympathetic nerves
They form autonomic nervous system. They prepare the body for emergency situation.
iii) Parasymgathetic nerves
They form autonomic nervous system. They involve in eating, sexual activity and urination etc. Autonomic nervous system therefore regulates involuntary systems of the body automatically.
Reflax arc is regarded as the functional unit of nervous system. A reflex is an automatic response to stimuli. A nervous pathway which operates without having to wait for directions of brain is a reflex arc. These reflexes increase the efficiency of nervous system. For example if our hand touches with a very hot thing it pulls back ward without any further delay.
Importance of Reflexes:
- i) Reflexes are mechanism for maintaining appropriate posture.
- ii) Reflexes are responsible to regulate blood pressure.
iii) They keep the body as per environmental condition. Involuntary Actions:
- i) Involuntary action is an action, which is performed without any conscious effort.
- ii) These actions have adaptive values because these actions required to produce at once.
iii) For example when a person touches something very hot the hand is automatically withdrawn.
- i) Voluntary Action is an action, which is performed on the will of an organism e.g. walking, talking, playing etc.
- ii) In these actions stimuli may be conveyed to brain or spinal cord.
iii) The brain or spinal cord then analyze the information and send motor impulses to effectors.
Note: The method is one of the first ways of learning the language. Its basis in the sequential study of various grammatical schemes and memorization of words. The meaning of what was said here is not important, most importantly, as it is said. This method allows you to perfectly master the grammar of someone else’s language, but he does not have practical speaking skills. Therefore it is very difficult to maintain a dialogue with a foreigner. The communicative method is the most popular and effective method. Speaking and writing, reading, grammar, listening and understanding are all at the same time during the communication between the student and the teacher. Thanks to this, starting to speak a foreign language becomes much easier. Lessons can be built with the use of many game elements, which allows the teacher to take into account the individual characteristics of each and make the classes more fun.
