Anonymous: Is the Nervous System a simple system, or is it very complicated?

The nervous system is the most complicated system in the entire body. It is known as the control center for your body.It is made up of billions of cells, nervous tissue, the brain and the spinal cord.

Hello, thank you. There is so exact number for the amount of neurons, but there are billions of neurons in the nervous system. Although, there are more neurons in the human brain than there are stars in the milky way.

Anonymous: when i use my senses, like my sight, touch, smell and hearing, is that my nervous system working?

Yes it is! when you touch a burning hot stove, and know to pull your hand away, that’s the sensory neurons at work. The sensory neurons take and gather signals and information from your skin, eyes, ears, nose an mouth, then send those signals to the brain to tell you what you’re feeling. For more information check out our ‘Functions’ page, or our ‘Cells’ page! thank you for asking, and i hope this helped you!
