FUNCTIONS OF MAJOR PARTS OF THE HUMAN BRAIN

FUNCTIONS OF MAJOR PARTS OF THE HUMAN BRAIN.
The Central Nervous System (CNS) consists of the brain and the spinal cord.
The CNS co-ordinates body activities by receiving impulses from sensory cells from different parts of the body.
It then sends the impulses to the appropriate effectors.
The brain is enclosed within the cranium or braincase.
It is covered and protected by membranes known as meninges.
When meninges are infected by bacterial or fungi they cause meningitis.
