The Nervous System
By: Ava Saitta
Facial Nerves- Controls your facial movement.
Peripheral Nerves- Controls your muscles for arm and leg movement.
Intercostal Nerves- Controls the movement in your ribs/chest.
Brain Stem- the main connection from the brain and spinal cord, controls breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure.
Parkinson's disease- a nerve disease that effects ones movement
Multiple sclerosis- a disease were the immune system mistakenly attacks the protective coat around the nerve fibers. There is no cure for M.S.
Amyotrophic sclerosis- a disease in the neurons that control voluntary muscle movement.
You cannot live without the nervous system because if you didn't have it you wouldn't be able to move at all.
