Central Nervous System

The central nervous system controls all five of your senses. It lets you hear, taste, feel, see, and smell things. For example if something rubs against your skin it lets you know that something is rubbing against you.


The experiences young children receive in the first three years until birth are crucial to brain development. As your child receives loving care and stimulation, neural connections are formed between his brain cells. These connections form the wiring system of the brain. Your child's early experiences largely determine the strength and function of her brain's wiring system. Warm responsive parents, who cuddle and talk to their children and provide challenging learning experiences, promote healthy brain development for their children.

New technology allows the thorough study of the brain, like we've never seen before. These studies prove that a child's early development is determined by his daily environment and experiences, rather than genetics alone. Researchers now believe it is the plasticity of the brain, its ability to develop and change in response to the demands of the environment, that enables a child to learn to use computers, solve mathematical problems and learn foreign languages. In order to fully understand this information, we must first understand how a child's brain works and develops.

How do you remember the way to your friend's house? Why do your eyes blink without thinking about it? Where do dreams and nightmares come from? Your brain is in charge of these things and much more.

In fact, your brain is the boss of your whole and all the systems body. It runs the show and controls just about everything you do, even when you're asleep. Not bad for something that looks like a wrinkly, sponge.

The brain is the main organ of the system and the whole body. The brain controls almost everything you do. These are the main parts of the brain below





This part of the body is very imortant

Fun Facts For The Brain

The brain still has parts that SCIENTIST STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND! Weight of brain is different in male and female. In males it is around 1375 g, while in female the weight of brain is around 1275 g. As we grow up, we lose almost one gram of brain weight per year.

Spinal cord

The spinal cord sends signals to the brain. It also controls your reflexes. For example if you touch something hot the message does not have to go all the way to your brain to tell your body to pull away. It just goes to the spinal cord.

Fun Facts of Spinal Cord

The male spinal cord is 45 centimeters long and the females 43 centimeters long.



  There're the thin threads of nerve cells, called neurons that run throughout you. Bundled together, they carry messages back and forth just the way that telephone wires do. Sensory nerves send messages to the brain and generally connect to the brain through the spinal cord inside your backbone.  nerves carry messages back from the brain to all the muscles and glands in your body.


The ERA-NET NEURON supports basic and translational research in the diverse fields of disease-related neuroscience. Ministries and funding organisations across Europe, Israel and Canada have joined forces to conquer diseases of the brain and the nervous system. According to estimates by the World Health Organisation, more than one billion people suffer from them. Brain diseases are major causes for impaired quality of life. They produced costs of € 800 billion in 2010 and are an increasingly heavy burden on our society. Not just for the patients, but for their families too. In many cases the underlying mechanisms are still not well understood and no curative treatment is available. Thus, neuroscience research and its translation into diagnostic and therapeutic measures are of highest priority for the well being of patients and their families. The ERA-NET NEURON aims to support research directed at a better understanding of brain diseases and their progression in order to pave the way for new or improved routes for diagnosis and therapy.

Fun Facts of Neurons

Do you know the average number of neurons in the human brain? Well the human brain has over 100 billion. But did you know a octopus has over 300 million?


Receptors is what makes us see,smell,hear and feal.Recepters are part of the cental nerves systum.Skin is a big part with receptors. Skin is what makes us feel. You might think it would be cool if you could not feal,but you would not now if you were hurt very bad. If you do not not now if you are hurt very bad you could get hurt even more than before. the type of skin receptors isa cell or group of cells that receives signals
