Spine Simulator Lets the Paralyzed Stand Again
The Nervous System is the messenger within our body, as it commands parts of our body to function properly.
Neurons can transfer messages at rates of 250 mph for commands that can be described as "instantaneous".
About 473 genetic disorders that directly affect the nervous system
There are two types of genetic disorders - dominant and recessive
Some have little or no effect on other parts of the body while others affect more than one system
Three Main Functions of System
Sensory
Integration
Motor
The Nervous System is made up of nerves and cells that form a complex system reaching throughout the human body, including two major parts:
The Brain
Brain Stem
Cerebrum
Cerebellum
Diencephalon
Spinal Cord
Parts of the System
Central Nervous System
Peripheral Nervous System
Somatic Nervous System
Autonomic Nervous System
Enteric Nervous System
Neurons:
Afferent Neurons
Efferent Neurons
Interneurons
Design and Location in Human Body
Interior
Controls all bodily functions and actions
Exterior
Accommodation to surroundings
Throughout Evolution
Inside
Involuntary actions
Psychological
What we would not be able to have
Communication
Main causes of injury to the peripheral nerves and the central nervous system:
laceration
focal contusion
stretch/traction injury
drug injection injury
electrical injury
concussion
Nerve Cells
Design
Purpose
Intent of location
The nervous system is spread throughout the entire body
Four men have shown voluntary movement in legs after many years of paralysis
Study was conducted by researchers at University of Louisville, UCLA, and the Pavlov Institute of Physiology
Treatment uses epidural stimulation, the electrical current is applied at varying frequencies and intensities to specific locations on the lumbosacral spinal cord to allow for this movement in the previously paralyzed body
