Nothing but the Nervous System
This is how the Nervous system works and what it does.
Major Parts and How It Works
One of many major parts of the brain is the Cerebrum. The Cerebrum is the part of the brain that lets us think. The Cerebrum makes up 85% of the brains weight! It is also the biggest part of the brain. Another important part is the spinal cord. The spinal cord is the pathway for messages sent by the brain to the body and from the body to the brain. The cerebellum receives information from the spinal cord, sensory system, and other parts of the brain and then regulates movements. It is the moving part of the brain. The brain stem connects the rest of the brain to your spinal cord. The brain stem is in charge of all the functions your body needs to stay alive, like breathing air, digesting food, and circulating blood. You need to keep your brain stem safe because it is one of the most important part of the brain.
