_This lesson will give an overview of the features of the central nervous system & the features of the peripheral nervous system including the two types of nerves that are a part of the PNS.
En esta lección vamos a revisar la estructura y función de los dos sistemas nerviosos—el sistema central y el sistema periférico.
Division of the nervous system that consists of the brain and spinal cord, is the processing center of the body, and contains interneurons
Division of the nervous system that sends signals to and from the central nervous system and contains sensory and motor neurons
Motor nerves that innervate skin and muscle
Motor neurons that innervate deeper organs and regulate unconscious organ activity
A division of the autonomic nerves which prepare the body for stressful situations by increasing physiological activity
A division of the autonomic nerves which allow the body to recover from stressful situations by slowing down physiological activity
