The nervous system is a complex system that has specialized cells known as neurons that transmit signals between different parts of the body. The nervous systems has two components, the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The brain, spinal cord and nerves are what the central nervous system is made up of. While the peripheral nervous system is made up of sensory neurons, ganglia and nerves that connect to one another and also to the central nervous system. These systems are important because they each have their own function to the body. The nervous system has two subdivisions, the somatic component and the autonomic component, to which both do important things in our body. The autonomic component helps regulate certain processes of our body such as blood pressure, the rate of our breathing, work that is being done without conscious effort. While the somatic system consists of nerves that connect to our brain and spinal cord with muscles and sensory receptors in the skin.
