The Main Components of the Nervous System
The part of the central Nervous System that is located in the skull and that controls most functions in the body.
The thick column of nerve tissue that is enclosed by the vertebrae and that links the brain to most of the nerves in the peripheral Nervous System.
All the nerves located outside the central Nervous System; connects the central Nervous System to all parts of the body.
Brainstem- The part of the brain that controls many body functions that occur automatically.
Cerebellum- The part of the brain that coordinates the action of the muscles and helps maintain balance.
Cerebrum- The part of the brain that interprets input from the senses, controls the movement of skeletal muscles, and carries out complex mental processes.
Reflex- An automatic response that occurs very rapidly and without conscious controls.
