Study Notes

  • The human nervous system can be broadly divided into the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system (neurons and parts of neurons found outside of the brain and spinal cord).
  • The central nervous system is where all the analysis of information takes place.
  • The peripheral nervous system includes sensory neurons and motor neurons. Sensory neurons bring signals into the central nervous system, and motor neurons carry signals out of the central nervous system.

Test your knowledge of the human nervous system's divisions and functions with this quiz. Explore the roles of the central nervous system in information analysis and the sensory and motor neurons in the peripheral nervous system.
