Development of central nervous system (CNS) is regulated by both intrinsic and peripheral signals. Previous studies have suggested that environmental factors affect neurological activities under both physiological and pathological conditions.

This book covers the following topics: Signs and symptoms of Central nervous system disease, Types of CNS For example, topics of great practical importance like the cranial nerves, the autonomic nervous system, and pain are treated in depth.

The book provides clear descriptions of brain structures and relates them to their functional properties by incorporating data ranging from molecular biology to The nervous system can be divided into two major regions: the central and peripheral nervous systems.

The central nervous system (CNS) is the brain and spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system (PNS) is everything else (Figure 1).The brain is contained within the cranial cavity of the skull, and the spinal cord is contained within the vertebral cavity of the vertebral :// The brain and the spinal cord are the central nervous system, and they represent the main organs of the nervous system.

The spinal cord is a single structure, whereas the adult brain is described in terms of four major regions: the cerebrum, the diencephalon, the brain stem, and the :// The central nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord.

The Central Nervous System, or CNS for short, is made up of the brain and spinal cord (see Figure 1). The CNS is the portion of the nervous system that is encased in bone (the brain is protected by the skull and the spinal cord is protected by the spinal column).
