This assignment is designed to get you thinking about the functions of some of the structures in the central and peripheral nervous system. Listed below are different symptoms or complications that can be attributed to something from the nervous system. List the specific structure that is most likely the root cause of the pathology. In addition, label which branch of the nervous system that structure is a part of (CNS or PNS). I suggest making a table with the pathology in one column, the affected structure in the next column, and the nervous system section in the final column. Two examples are below. It is possible that more than one answer could be correct. Pathology/Patient Specific Structure CNS or PNS? John’s eyes and optic nerve are in optimal condition, but he is still classified as legally blind. Primary Visual Cortex CNS Although Meredith is the CEO of Yankee Candle, she cannot smell a thing. She has no history of allergies and tested negative for COVID. Olfactory Nerve (CNI) PNS Pathologies: Meredith has the hiccups. Clayton has developed an uncontrollable tremor in one of his hands. Dawn has lost all motor ability, but only on the right side of her body. Jim woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed that his left lip was sagging, his left eye was drooping, and he looked as if he was crying out of one eye (and no, he hadn’t just watched Marley and Me) Following an injury to his elbow, Derrick has been experiencing a constant pain, weakness, and burning sensation throughout the medial side of his hand. Katie, a lifetime dancer and dead-eye three point shooter on her basketball team, has struggled just balancing while walking in a straight line recently. She was involved in a fender bender after vastly misjudging the distance between her car and the car in front of her and her once smooth dribbling skills have seemingly regressed to that of a beginner. Robert can remember the word he spelled correctly to win the second grade spelling bee but ever since his injury, he cannot remember what he had for breakfast in the morning. Julie has struggled with back pain for most of her life, but recently the pain has become more intense and has resulted in a shooting pain down her leg to her foot. She has also noticed weakness and a tingling sensation throughout the affected leg. Reed’s blood pressure, heart rate, and emotional state have been fluctuating wildly recently. He also hasn’t been able to sleep, struggles to keep food down, and to top it all off, he’s sweating profusely even though it’s the middle of January. Leah has experienced severe pain in her face recently. The pain only lasts a couple minutes, but comes and goes multiple times per day. The smallest stimulus can set it off, even something as simple as a gust of her wind on her cheek.
