central nervous system and peripheral nervous system.
The ___ consists of the brain and spinal chord, and occupy the dorsal body cavity
CNS
The ___ consists mainly of the nerves (bundles of axons) that extend to and from the spinal chord.
pns
___ ___ carry impulses to and from the spinal cord
Spinal nerves
____ ___ carry impulses to and from the brain
cranial nerves
