Brain System

The brain is the most complex part of the human body. This three-pound organ is the seat of intelligence, interpreter of the senses, initiator of body movement, and controller of behavior.

Spinal System

The spinal cord is a long, thin, tubular bundle of nervous tissue and support cells that extends down to the tail bone. The spinal cord is the information highway of the body.
