Neurological Conditions

The nervous system is a complex, sophisticated system that regulates and coordinates body activities. It is made up of two major divisions, including the following:

  • central nervous system-consisting of the brain and spinal cord.
  • peripheral nervous system-consisting of all other neural elements.

In addition to the brain and spinal cord, principal organs of the nervous system include the following:

  • eyes
  • ears
  • sensory organs of taste
  • sensory organs of smell
  • sensory receptors located in the skin, joints, muscles, and other parts of the body

  • trauma
  • infections
