Nervous System Study Guide
Introduction:
The nervous system is the master coordinating system of the body. Every thought, action, and sensation
reflects its activity. Because of its complexity, the structures of the nervous system are described in
terms of two principal divisions—the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system
(PNS). The CNS, consisting of the brain and spinal cord, interprets incoming sensory information and
issues instructions based on past experience. The PNS, consisting of cranial and spinal nerves and
ganglia, provides the communication lines between the CNS and the body’s muscles, glands, and
sensory receptors. The nervous system is also divided functionally in terms of motor activities into the
somatic and autonomic divisions. It is important, however, to recognize that these classifications are
made for the sake of convenience and that the nervous system acts in an integrated manner both
structurally and functionally.
