Study Notes

Peripheral Nervous System

  • The sensory (afferent) division of the peripheral nervous system is responsible for transmitting information from sensory receptors to the central nervous system (CNS).

Central Nervous System

  • The CNS is the site of information integration and decision-making.

Motor Output

  • The effector organs activated by the nervous system's motor output are muscles and glands.

Visceral Organs

  • The visceral sensory (afferent) division of the peripheral nervous system conveys impulses from visceral organs to the CNS.

Sensory Receptors

  • The nervous system uses its sensory receptors to monitor the internal and external environment, including stimuli such as light, sound, touch, temperature, and pain.

Test your knowledge of the fundamentals of the nervous system and nervous tissue functions with this quiz. Explore the sensory output and communication processes of the nervous system through a series of questions. Sharpen your understanding of the body's master controlling and communicating system.
