The situation of Crazy Eddie’s wrestling challenge incorporates a multitude of functions between the brain and body. These functions include the fundamental processes of life, motor, sensory, memory, and emotion. Each brain structures response to stimuli activates specialized areas that send electrochemical signals to communicate with corresponding systems. The nervous system interprets and interacts with the world, and protects the body from danger. The information collected by sensory organs continues through bundles of nerves. Because Neurons fire in synchrony, endogenous electrochemical signals, or neurotransmitters between each neurons’ synapse, these signals influence: emotions, cognitions, and behaviors dependent on how the brain perceives the situation and environment. Crazy Eddie’s circumstance activates the central nervous system (CNS), peripheral nervous system (PNS), autonomic nervous system (ANS), somatic nervous system (SNS), sympathetic division of the ANS, and each corresponding structures biological response.
The Brain Function of a Profession Wrestler During Physical,
Emotional, and Biological Reaction to Stimuli
As Crazy Eddie observes his opponent, a hundred billion interconnected neurons receive and transmit information to and from the nervous system. The nervous system contains both the central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS). The “old brain” or brainstem controls the primary functions for life. This region contains the medulla, pons, reticular formation, and thalamus. The medulla sits at the base of the skull, regulates blood pressure, breathing, and heart rate. The pons connects the medulla with the cerebral cortex. The spinal cord’s neural network is dependent upon the reticular formation’s filtration of irrelevant sensory stimulus. This region relays signals to the thalamus, cerebral cortex, and supports the somatic nervous system. (Shapiro, 2012) The thalamus distributes the spinal...
