go to righthealth.com and search M.S., huntington's disease and many others  (+ info)

What's the difference between the central and peripheral nervous system?

I'm having a hard time understanding the difference. Can someone give me a simple description on them.
Also, which system are you using when you move your hand away from a hot stove?
What are some examples for them both?

CNS is brain and spinal cord. PNS are the sensory and motor neurons. The PNS breaks down further into the autonomic and the sensory-somatic nervous system. The autonomic breaks down further into the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. It is very complex but to answer your question when you touch a hot stove sensory neurons (PNS) send a message to the brain (CNS) and the brain process that the hand is being injured and reacts by sending motor neurons (PNS) to tell the hand to pull away. Good Luck.  (+ info)

How does the peripheral nervous system connect to the centeral nervous system?

The brain and the spinal cord ARE the CNS.

Everything else is a peripheral nerve.
There are different branches such as the Autonomic, Sympathetic,
Para-Sympathetic etc.

Don't confuse these with different "systems" of the body.
i.e. digestive, vascular, skeletal,respiratory etc,

I'm not sure if this answers your question or if your asking about
chain link ganglion, synapses ?  (+ info)

What are some cool facts on the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system?

I need these facts so people please help me.

As someone who has studied science for years, you came to the right place lol

I'll give you links to some sites i have used in my Biomed studies.
The first link has games and pictures which are a fun way to learn about the brain. There is no point in learning in the same old boring way, so the more creative you can be, the better.

The rest are great, fun facts abut all the things you mentioned, plus interactive exercises and fun. Brain links first, spinal cord second then peripheral nervous system.  (+ info)

Diseases Associated with the Central Nervous System?

Can anyone tell me what type of diseases are associated with the central nervous system. I took my 8 year old to the doctor today and was advised in general that she wants him to come back in a couple weeks to do some tests with the central nervous system because she feels that there may be an issue in this area. This is cause for concern becuase my son is currently taking medication for his ADHD, ODD and Bi-Polar disorder. In addition to, recently he has been having seziures too. These are not just titles associated with this child for that if he wasn't on the medication he would be extreamly unmanageable and a danger to himself and other children.

The following website has many links to sites with information on the central nervous system:
Check out the "Drugs and Supplements" link to find out side effects of drugs and drug interaction problems.  (+ info)
