What makes up your nervous system?
The nervous system consists of the brain and the spinal cord. Nerve fibers of the spinal cord spread out to the different part of body. These nerve fibers are part of the peripheral nervous system and are the nerves that are found outside the spinal cord and brain.
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 peripheral nervous system is made up of the sensory (afferent) and motor (efferent) divisions. The motor division is furthermore split into the somatic and autonomic nervous systems. Lastly, the autonomic nervous system is split into the sympathetic (fight or flight) and parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous systems.
THE PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM AKA (PNS) : consists of sensory and motor neurons that transmit information to and from the central nervous system. includes all neurons that are not part of the nervous system, including the peripheral nervous system can be classified further as being either part of the somatic nervous system or part of the autonomic nervous system. It makes up the somatic and the autonomic nervous system.
