Nervous systems by julia and cameron

  1. 1. The nervous system.
  2. 2.  The brain tells the body what to do, but it needs information first, this is where the nervous system comes in.
  3. 3.  There are two main part’s in the nervous system, the central nervous system and the peripheral system. The nervous system is all to do with passing information through the body and into the brain.
  4. 4.  Nerves carry messages to and from your brain, telling it if you are hungry, hot, cold or in pain. Nerves run from your spinal cord- a thick rope of nerves inside your back bone- to every part of your body.
  5. 5.  The central nervous system is to do with the brain and spinal cord. While the peripheral system is to do with the senses.
  6. 6. Without your spine your body wouldn’t be able to move.(Like jelly)
  7. 7.  Nerves divide many times as they leave the spinal cord so that they may reach all parts of the body. The thickest nerve is 1 inch thick and the thinnest is thinner than a human hair. Each nerve is a bundle of hundreds or thousands of neurons (nerve cells).
  8. 8.  The spinal cord runs down a tunnel of holes in your backbone or spine. The bones protect it from damage. The cord is a thick bundle of nerves, connecting your brain to the rest of your body.

  10. 10.  All senses depend on the working nervous system. Our sense organs start to work when something stimulates special nerve cells called receptors in a sense organ. We have five main sense organs. They are the eyes, nose, ears, tongue, and skin.
