What is the Central Nervous System?
The central nervous system (CNS) is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and a complex set of neurons that are responsible for sensing stimuli and transmitting signals to and from different parts of the body. The function of the CNS is to measure changes in the external environment and respond by adjusting the organism's internal organ function.
The brain is responsible for a variety of functions including receiving and processing sensory information, thinking, perceiving, controlling autonomic (automatic) functions including breathing, heart rate, hormone levels, digestion, etc, vision, hearing, and movement and coordination.
The spinal cord carries sensory information to the brain, and allows the appropriate instruction from the brain to initiate an appropriate response from the body.
Neurons send signals between the brain, spinal cord and other body organs via nerve impulses..
