    The human body is extremely complex and made up of various systems and organs that must work together. When one part does not function the way it is suppose to, it can slow down the functions of the other parts, which can be detrimental . A quote by Doris Lessing states that when one’s body malfunctions or contains chemical imbalances, “It makes you aware of the knife-edge we live on”. In order for the human body to function correctly, the central nervous system, endocrine, and peripheral nervous system must all work together properly. The central nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord. It’s responsibility is to integrate sensory information and respond appropriately. The separate function for the brain is to coordinate body…

    The nervous system in the body is divided into Central Nervous System (CNS) and Peripheral Nervous System (PNS). Central nervous system controls all important nerves inside the body enable the body to do its daily tasks. Peripheral nervous system is the system that control on the outside the brain and spinal cord. Both systems are requiring in the body for different functions. The central nervous system consists of the nerves in brain and spinal cord. The brain is responsible for organize and…

    Synapses are the basic functional units in Central Nervous System (CNS). The synapses enable neuron-to-neuron communication via releasing and uptake of neurotransmitters. The synapse formation is modulated by specialized CNS cell type, glia. The glia modulates neuronal function via synapse formation, modification and elimination and, the glia even affects reorganization of neuronal circuit. Understanding cellular and molecular interactions of these glial cells is of great importance because they…

    The nervous system consists of five senses including touch, sound, smell, taste, and sight. Our movements, sensations, thoughts, and emotions all come from the nervous system (Anon, 2018). How a person responds to a stimulus is coordinated by their central nervous system (CNS). The CNS is made up of the brain and spinal cord. It collects information about changes to the environment and the receptors respond to a stimulus sending impulses along sensory neurons to the central nervous system…

    The nervous system is composed of two main parts which are the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system includes the brain and nerve cords like the spinal cord while the peripheral nervous system includes the motor nerves and sensory nerves. There are two main types of support cells in the nervous system which are glial cells and neurons. The neurons' function in the system is to receive and send electrical signals. The glial cells provide insulation…

    The central nervous system consists of the brain and the spinal cord and is responsible for the majority of the functions of the body and mind (What is the Central Nervous System?). The brain and spinal cord contain two types of tissue, grey matter, which originates and processes nerve impulses; and white matter, which transmits them (Structure and Function). The brain, weighing less than 3 pounds and perhaps one of the most complicated objects in the entire universe, acts as an interpreter for…

    The spinal cord, brain stem, and peripheral nerves form a complex information developing system, acknowledged as the central nervous system. They contribute to performance of conscious and unconscious aspects of life. The mind has an abstract, rational, and conscious process. Conscious mental processes give a flexible, adaptable form of management. Furthermore, bodily functions are ingenious with the physical facets of brain-neurons and brain balance. Central nervous systems are liable for…

    cord. Efferent nerves are the motor nerves they carry information out of the brain and spinal cord to other parts of the body. Afferent nerves take in information and efferent nerves carry out information. 2. Study Figure 2.1. What makes up the Central Nervous System (CNS)? The central nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord. 3. When you accidentally touch a hot burner on a stove, which part of your nervous system carries the pain message from your skin to your brain?…

    In neuronal development, the general rule is that cells are generated in sites different from those they later reside in. The Nervous System is the master controlling and communicating system of the body. Electrical impulses act as signaling device; they are rapid, specific and cause immediate responses. They also use sensory receptors to monitor changes called stimuli. This is where gathered information creates sensory input. Integration is the processes and interprets sensory input which…

    The 130 million receptor cell called the Retina is apart of the Central Nervous System. The Retina is how people are nearsighted they can see they can see near objects, but they can’t focus enough to see far. Farsightedness or being farsighted is when you see far, but you can’t see near objects clearly. The 130 receptor cells are also known as rods and cones. The Central Nervous System is apart of the Nervous System, but the Central Nervous System makes up the brain, spinal cord, and retina.…
