Divisions and subdivisions of the Nervous System

CNS, integrating & control center
Interprets sensory input & dictates motor output based on reflexes, current conditions, & past experience
Somatic Nervous System
Peripheral Nervous System
System outside the CNS
Consists of nerves (bundles of axons) that extend from brain & spinal cord, & ganglia (collections of neuron cell bodies)
Spinal nerves carry impulses to & from spinal cord & cranial nerves carry impulses to & from the brain
