					The Nervous
  System
 Definition
is an organ system containing
a network of specialized cells
called neutrons that coordinate

different parts of its body.
   Two main systems
• The Central Nervous System
  (CNS)
• The Peripheral Nervous System
  (PNS)
    Central Nervous System
•  Its main job is to get the information
  from the body and send out
  instructions .
Includes:
1.) BRAIN
2.) SPINAL CORD
Brain   Spinal Cord
     Peripheral Nervous System

  brain to the rest of the body.
INCUDES:
 1.) nerves
2.) wiring

                  • Parietal Lobe- associated
                    with movement,
                    orientation, recognition,
                    perception of stimuli
                  • Occipital Lobe- associated
                    with visual processing
                  • Temporal Lobe- associated
                    with perception and
                    recognition of auditory
                    stimuli, memory, and

        The Endocrine System
• A hormone is carried by the blood from the
