Inhibitory: lowers anxiety and arousal, regulates movement
Excitatory: memory storage, pain perception, strokes, schizophrenia
Pain relief, feelings of pleasure
Integrate info w/in CNS b/w sensory and motor neurons of spinal cord
PNS to CNS info from sensory receptors, muscles, and glands
CNS to PNS carry movement commands to body
PNS to CNS and back, controls skeletal muscles’ movements
Regulates function of internal organs: heart, lungs, etc.
In control when highly aroused,
