The Brain, Neurons and Brain Chemistry
The Human Nervous System
The brain is the command center of the central nervous system; it controls virtually all functions of the body. The brain’s main communication channel to the rest of the body is the spinal cord. Nerves branch out from the spinal cord and send and receive information. All other nerves in the body form the peripheral nervous system.
