The form and functions of the central nervous system; an introduction to the study of nervous diseases. The nervous system has two major parts: the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS). The central system is the primary command center for the body, and is comprised of. The peripheral nervous system (PNS) is the connection between the central nervous system and the rest of the body. The PNS can be broken down into the autonomic nervous system, which controls bodily functions without conscious control, and the sensory-somatic nervous system, which transmits sensory information from the skin, muscles, and.

Central Nervous System (CNS) is often called the central processing unit of the body. It consists of the brain and the spinal cord. The brain is one of the important, largest and central organ of the human nervous system. It is the control unit of the nervous system, which helps us in discovering new things, remembering and understanding. The Nervous System Functions of the Nervous System 1. Gathers information from both inside and outside the body - Sensory Function 2. Transmits information to the processing areas of the brain and spine 3. Processes the information in the brain and spine – Integration Function Size: 2MB. Central nervous system diseases, also known as central nervous system disorders, are a group of neurological disorders that affect the structure or function of the brain or spinal cord, which collectively form the central nervous system. This book covers the following topics: Signs and symptoms of Central nervous system disease, Types of CNS. Central Nervous System The human brain (which weighs only about 3 pounds, or 1, kilograms) is estimated to contain over one hundred billion neurons. Neurons form the core of the central nervous system, which consists of the brain, spinal cord, and other nerve bundles in the body. The main function of the central nervous system is to sense.

  This third edition of Per Brodal’s book “The central nervous system: structure and function”, last edited in , attests to the efforts of the author to keep up with the rapid pace of development in the field of of us probably remember the repulsive effect of overwhelming details in some textbooks of neuroanatomy or neurophysiology, that fail to be relevant in Cited by: 4. Key Terms. myelin: A white, fatty material, composed of lipids and lipoproteins, that surrounds the axons of nerves.; glia: Non-neuronal cells that maintain homeostasis, form myelin, and provide support and protection for neurons in the brain, and for neurons in other parts of the nervous system such as in the autonomic nervous system.; astrocyte: a neuroglial cell, in the shape of a star, in. The Central Nervous System provides an excellent overview of the systems and functions of the CNS. From very detailed neuroanatomical structures, to complex processes involved with all types of functionality, this book presents a superb introduction for any young neuroscience student/5. The central nervous system (CNS) is the part of the nervous system consisting primarily of the brain and spinal CNS is so named because it integrates the received information and coordinates and influences the activity of all parts of the bodies of bilaterally symmetric animals—i.e., all multicellular animals except sponges and radially symmetric animals such as jellyfish—and it MeSH: D
