What do the nerves in the PNS do?
The PNS gathers all outside and foreign information and directs it to the CNS.
The PNS includes the cranial nerves, which emerge from the brain, and the spinal nerves, which emerge from the spinal cord.
Components of the CNS are the brain and spinal cord. Components of the PNS are cranial nerves and spinal nerves.
Periipheral Nervous System is the PNS and the collection of nerve cells are Cranial Nerves (12 pairs), Spina Nerves ( 31 pair), Autonomic Nerves, Parasympatheric Nerves, Sympathetic Nerves,
Why are some nerves called afferent nerves and others are called efferent nerves- how do they differ in function?
Afferent nerves are those that send impulses from the PNS to the CNS. Efferent nerves send impulses from the CNS to the PNS. So the first goes toward the Central Nervous System and the second goes away from it.
Bundles of neuron processes are called tracts in the cns and nerves in the pns
The PNS (peripheral nervous system) is composed of all other nerves. The CNS is composed of the brain and spinal cord.
Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) Contains all nerves outside of the brain & spinal cord. Somatic Nervous System (Voluntary) Two types: Sensory (or afferent) and motor (or efferent) nerves
Yes, the PNS contains ganglia, cranial nerves, and spinal nerves.
the PNS as the cental nervous system only consists of the brain and spinal cord. where as the rest of the body is covered by all the nerves which are included in the PNS
There are 12 pairs of cranial nerves that are part of the PNS. These nerves are sensory, mixed and mostly motor.
The structures in the CNS include the brain and the spinal chord while the PNS are all the nerves extending outside the CNS.
"THe PNS consist of the spinal and cranial nerves" This is incorrect: The peripheral nervous system (PNS) actually consists of every nerve aside from the spinal and cranial nerves. It is actually the central nervous system (CNS) that controls brain and spinal nerves.
Nerves and ganglia are parts of PNS.
PNS includes all nerves throughout the body, except the brain and spinal cord.
Nerves located in the PNS are called Ganglia.
cardiac muscles and smooth muscle
The sensory nervous system comprises 12 pairs of cranial nerves and 31 pairs of spinal nerves.
There are 32 pars of spinal nerves that leave the brain and spinal chord to form the preipheral nervous system.
Rabies virus travel physically along the nerves by division of virus.
What is the nervous system subdivision that is composed of the cranial and spinal nerves and ganglia?
Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) original answer by btbchris
peripheral nervous system, or PNS, consists of the nerves outside the cns.
The pervious answer is incorrect. the spinal cord are part of the Central Nervous system or (CNS)

PNS means peripheral nervous system. CNS means central nervous system.
CNS or Central Nervous System connects the brain and spinal cord sending messages to and form the brain to the spinal cord. PNS or Peripheral Nervous System connects the cranial and spinal nerves relaying info to and from.
Sensory nerves are part of the peripheral nervous system. This is also called the PNS for short. Sensory nerves work in conjuction with the senses, to receive and transmit signals and impulses from the sensory organs.
The Central Nervous System and the Peripheral Nervous System or CNS and PNS are the two main divisions of the nervous system. The CNS consists of the spinal cord and brain and gathers info. in the spinal cord and up to the brain for interpretation and the brain sends out a signal as a response. The PNS is made up of sensory receptors and motor effectors. ( It is basically all the parts besides the… Read More
The two main nervous systems are the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS). The CNS includes the brain and spinal cord, and the PNS is all the other nerves and structures of the nervous system.
it is made up by nerves and associated cells that are not part of the brain and the spinal cord, included here are cranial nerves that pass through openings in the skull and stimulate regions of the head and neck, spinal nerves, and ganglia(ganglia are collections of nerve cell bodies).
The CNS connects via the spinal cord to the PNS (peripheral nervous system).
The CNS comprises the brain and spinal cord, and the PNS is composed of the nerves that stem from and lead into the CNS.
Neuron processes running through the CNS form tracts of white matter; in the PNS they form the peripheral nerves.
The peripheral nervous system (PNS) consists of the nerves and ganglia outside of the brain and spinal cord.
In the peripheral nervous system, Schwann cells are responsible for forming myelin sheaths around the larger nerve fibres in the PNS. Keep in mind that one Schwann cell myelinates one nerve. You may hear about oligodendrocytes, but these are responsible for myelination in the Central Nervous System, and myelinate multiple nerves.
The cranial nerves are part of the PNS with the exception of cranial nerve II, the optic nerve, along with the retina. A.Part of the PNS can control your skeletal muscles B.Part of it can speed your body up C.Part of it can keep your heart beating D.Part of it can slow your body down
The central nervous system (CNS) including the brain and spinal cord and the peripheral nervous system (PNS) including nerves in the arms and legs.
The nervous system is made up of two parts the central (CNS) and the peripheral (PNS). The CNS includes the brain, found in the head, and the spinal chord, found running through the spine. The PNS includes all of the peripheral nerves that run to all parts of the body, and so are found almost everywhere.
Brain and spinal cord compose the central nervous system (CNS). All the nerves that innervate everything outside of your CNS is your peripheral nervous system (PNS).
That part of the nervous system is called the peripheral nervous system. Anything outside the brain and the spinal cord (central NS) belongs to that PNS.
The nervous system is divided into: - The central nervous system (CNS) : Encephalon, diencephalon, mesencephalon, pons, medulla, spinal cord, cerebellum. - The peripheral nervous system (PNS) : Roots, spinal nerves, plexi, peripheral nerves and neuromuscular junction. - The autonomic nervous system (ANS) : Sympathetic and Parasympathetic
division of pns
The simple answer is that the cns center is located in the brain and spinal cord, protected by bone structures, while the pns is is broken down into two parts, the somatic nervous system, and the autonomic nervous system. It is located in nerves that connect to the nerves of the cns and is not protected by your bones. Pns is what controls your breathing, heart beat, and movement, while also directly communicating with the… Read More
I think you mean Central and Peripheral Nervous Systems.\ The CNS controls the brain and spinal chord, and the PNS controls cranial and skeletal nerves. There are two types of nerves in the PNS: Sensory Nerves and Motor Nerves. Of Motor Nerves, Somatic Motor Nerves are in charge of controlling skeletal muscles (some people think of this as 'voluntary'), and Autonomic Motor Nerves are in charge of everything else (automatic response, or 'involuntary'). Finally, Autonomic… Read More
PNS is short for the peripheral nervous system .
the largest part of the nervous system is the peripheral nervous system (PNS) which includes all nerves in all parts of the body except the brain and spinal cord.
The part of the peripheral nervous system that carries the sensory information to the CNS is designated?
The afferent division of the PNS carries impulses inward to a central organ or section, as nerves that conduct impulses from the periphery of the body to the brain or spinal cord
PNS: Peripheral Nervous System
Is the peripheral nervous system a name used to refer to all of the nerves except those that stay in the brain and spinal cord?
Yes. The CNS (Central Nervous System) includes the brain and spinal cord, so everything within those two are considered within it also. All of the nerves on the outside of the CNS is called the PNS (Peripheral Nervous System).
You have thousands of nerves that are part of the PNS. Divisions of the peripheral nervous system include the afferent (sensory) division and the efferent (motor) division. The nerves coming from all the senses and the nerves going to glands and muscles are included. The efferent division is divided further into the somatic motor nervous system and the somatic nervous system which includes all voluntary motor pathways outside the central nervous system.
