My most interested system is the nervous system. The nervous system is made up of the brain, the spinal cord, and nerves. One of the most important systems in your body, the nervous system is your body's control system. It sends, receives, and processes nerve impulses throughout the body.

Such as eyes, ears, skin, and other "sensory receptors". The peripheral nervous system is made up of two parts, somatic nervous system and autonomic nervous system. The somatic system picks up sensory information and its carried to the central nervous system. They also consist of the motor nerve fibers. It sends messages for movement and acts to the skeletal muscle. It sends messages to the brain to give the muscle to give action. The autonomic nervous system is made up of three parts; sympathetic nervous system, parasympathetic nervous system, and enteric nervous system. System controls organs in the body where humans cannot.
