A picture is worth a thousand words! For the assessment in this lesson, you will complete a creative project that uses pictures to describe the nerve pathway of a sympathetic and parasympathetic response.Your project should include:
All the components of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve pathways: a stimuli, nerve impulse, sensory neuron, interneuron, preganglionic motor neuron, chain ganglia or cranial nerve ganglia, postganglionic motor neuron, and effector organ and response
A diagram showing the direction of the nerve impulse along the pathway
Pictures and titles that help describe the pathway of the nerve impulse
Each pathway must include three reactions to the motor impulse (increase in heart rate or decrease in saliva—see page 3 and 4 for more options)
You may present your project in one of the following ways:
