The central nervous system, or the CNS, is made up of the brain and spinal cord and is one of the divisions of the nervous system. Information is sent from other parts of the body to the central nervous system through the sensory neurons and information is sent out to the body through the motor neurons.
Several CNS diseases exist, such as meningitis, Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis and Huntington's disease. Here at Bright Hub, you can find articles on the functions and components of the central nervous system. You can also find articles on the different CNS diseases: their causes, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment.
