Nervous Systems

Describe and explain the functions and interaction of neuron, central, peripheral, and autonomous nervous systems.

(Neuron transmits signals from the central nervous system to all parts of the body including your five senses they are, sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. Neuron is also responsible for processing information through the brain.

Central nervous system (CNS) is the processing center for the nervous system. It accepts information which sends it to the peripheral nervous system. There are two key organs of the CNS they are the brain and spinal cord. The brain develops and comprehends sensory information which come from the spinal cord.
Peripheral nervous system is divided into two systems; the most important role is connecting the central nervous system to the organs, limbs and skin.

Autonomous nervous systems (ANS), is mostly motor nerves that controls the functions of involuntary muscles, cardiac muscles, and glands. ANS is also responsible for almost every organ within the nervous system.)
