Transcript of Nervous Sytem

The Nervous System
The Nervous System is a convoluted body system consisting of nerves and specialized cells called "neurons' that help the body communicate with each other, using both electrical and chemical means to send and receive messages.
The nervous system has three functions, sensory, interpretative and motor.
The sensory function gathers information from both in and out of the body and is sent to the central nerve system.
There the information is interrogated, the signals are then analyzed.
Motor nerves transmit the information to the muscles and glands of the body.
Functions of the Nervous System

Any sensory organ is a part of the nervous system; Vision, taste, hearing, smell and balance.
The Nervous system controls the inner organs of the body, for humans have no conscious control of. This includes the heart beat, digestion, breathing (apart from conscious breathing).
Relationship to other organs
Parkinson's disease can't be cured but there are treatments to help patients who suffer from the disease.
Treatment for diseases
Though there aren't any technology that can treat Parkinson's disease, there is technology to diagnose the disease/diseases within the nervous system; X-ray, fluoroscopy , MRI, Ct scan, EEG. Each of the technology can pick up brain activity or body motion, such as blood flow through arteries.
Scientific technology
Structure of the Nervous System

Nervous System
The Nervous system according to the National Institutes of Health, includes the central nervous system and peripheral system, the central nervous system consisting of the brain and spinal cord. Any other nerves in the body is part of the Peripheral system.
Parkinson's disease; a gradual disease caused by the death on neurons in a part of the brain called the mid brain. Loss of neurons that produce a messenger chemical in the brain; dopamine. When the levels of dopamine decreases, it causes abnormal brain activity.
Parkinson's disease can be caused by a small variety of things,a few being; genetic, environmentally triggered (being exposed to toxic environments can/ could lead to Parkinson's disease,
Symptoms of Parkinson's disease include, shaking, difficulty/slow movements, speech change and muscle stiffness.
Nerves of the autonomic system wear out the smooth muscles of the inner organs and glands and cause them to function and stow.
Though there is really no real way to prevent Parkinson's diseases, it is believed that people who eat more fruit and vegetables, high fiber foods, red meat, fish, Omega-3 oils and dairy have a lower chance of contracting the Parkinson's disease
People who have Parkinson's disease are often offered "deep brain stimulation'. This is able to stabilize the halt movements, reduce tremor, reduce rigidity and improve movement slowly
