Nervous System – Notes
Coordination between organ systems and the functions of the organs is crucial to maintain a physiological balance, called homeostasis.
The neutral system and the endocrine system maintain homeostasis in our body.
Neurons are called the structural and functional units of the neural system.
The human neural system is divided into the central neural system (CNS) and the peripheral neural system (PNS).
The brain and spinal cord form the central neural system, and the cranial and spinal nerves from the peripheral neural system.
The peripheral neural system can be divided into somatic neural system and the autonomic neural system.
