3 The Nervous System Nervous System: Nervous System: The body’s speedy, electrochemical communication network The body’s speedy, electrochemical communication network Consists of central and peripheral nervous system Consists of central and peripheral nervous system Nerves: Nerves: Bundled axons that form neural “cables” connecting the central nervous system with muscles, glands, and sense organs Bundled axons that form neural “cables” connecting the central nervous system with muscles, glands, and sense organs

4 The Nervous System Central Nervous System (CNS): Central Nervous System (CNS): The brain and spinal cord The brain and spinal cord Interneurons communicate in the spinal cord (reflexes) Interneurons communicate in the spinal cord (reflexes) Peripheral Nervous System (PNS): Peripheral Nervous System (PNS): The sensory and motor neurons that connect the central nervous system with the rest of the body The sensory and motor neurons that connect the central nervous system with the rest of the body
