The two main division of The Nervous System is divided into: Peripheral Nervous System Central Nervous System The Peripheral Nervous System is divided into two major parts:The somatic nervous system and the autonomic nervous system. While The Central Nervous System is divided into two parts: the brain and the spinal cord.
Central & Peripheral Edit: I don't think the last person read the entire question. Central (CNS) and Peripheral (PNS) are the two major divisions of the nervous system but the question is asking specifically about the central. Two major division of the central nervous system (structurally) are White matter and Gray matter.
Actually, the brain is a part of the nervous system. The nervous system is made up of the Central Nervous System and the Peripheral Nervous System. The Brain and the Spinal Cord are the two components of the Central Nervous System, while everything else makes up the Peripheral Nervous System. The Peripheral Nervous System is further divided into the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Divisions of the Autonomic Nervous System. Hope that helps!
THE TWO DIVISION OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM ARE THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM OR CNS AND PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM OR PNS . Central nervous system consist of the brain and the spinal cord . It receives and sorts out information coming from the environment and from inside the body and determines the appropriate action. Peripheral nervous system is made up of nerves that extend throughout the body . It is through these nerve cells that communicate…
The nervous system is initially divided into the central nervous system (CNS) (brain and spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS) (pretty much all nerves and related structures that do not reside in the brain or spinal cord). The PNS is then divided into two two divisions known as the somatic division (voluntary) and the autonomic division (involuntary). The autonomic nervous system is then once more divided into the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions.
