Nervous System

The nervous system is a very complex and intricate system. Each part is so well intermingled and connected that there is very little room for error. There are 6 different structures of nervous systems, they include;


Central Nervous System: This is made up of the brain and spinal cord, and is essentially the main core of our body.

Peripheral Nervous System: This is the connecting nerves within our central nervous system.


Autonomic Nervous System: This part controls involuntary activity in humans and vertebrates; for example the action of the heart and glands, breathing, digestive properties, and reflex actions.


Sensory Nervous System: This is the part of the nervous system which is responsible for environmental control, the control of our 5 senses.
