Human body is a complex structure where various vital organs work in tandem for ensuring its optimum functional efficiency.
The functioning of whole body be it internal or external is, directly and indirectly, dependent upon the Human Nervous System – which coordinates and transmits voluntary, involuntary actions and signals between the body parts.
Human nervous system is broadly divided into two parts – Central Nervous System (CNS) and the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS). While CNS comprises the brain and spinal cord, PNS deals with nerves – those long fiber-like structures connecting CNS to other neural elements, essentially sensory receptors like eyes, ears, and skin.
Disorders, injuries, and various ailments related to the nervous system are known as neurological conditions, and the expert physician trained in this area of medicine is called a Neurologist.
