The Nervous System by Walter Oleksy
Publication Date: 2001-07-15
Here is the story of how the brain and nervous system work to enable us to perceive the world around us, to think, and to react to what we perceive. No teenager should be without an owner's manual for the brain.
The brain is the control center of the body, the site of our thoughts, feelings, and memories. The brain also regulates hundreds of body parts and processes. We will look at the network of nerves that branches from the brain and spinal cord and carries messages all over the body. We will discuss the effects of damage to the brain and nervous system and examine the importance of sleep in maintaining a healthy body and mind.
