The nervous system allows us to think, evaluate, and remember information.
The most important part of the nervous system is the neuron or nerve cell.
There are three functions of the nervous system: sensory input, integration, and motor input.
Sensory input– When the eyes see something or hands touch a warm surface, the neurons send a message straight to the brain.
This action of getting information from the surrounding environment is called sensory input because things are being sent to the brain by way of the senses.
Integration– The interpretation, or translation, of things that have been felt, tasted, and touched with the sensory neurons into responses that the body recognizes.
This process is accomplished in the brain.
Motor output– Once your brain has interpreted all that has been sent by using any of the senses, then your brain sends a message through neurons to muscle or other cells, which work to perform the response.
