Nerves carry messages back and forth between the brain and other parts of the body. All of your nerves together make up the nervous system.
Some nerves tell the brain what is happening in the body. For example, when you step on a tack, the nerve in your foot tells the brain about the pain. Other nerves tell the body what to do. For example, nerves from the brain tell your stomach when it is time to move food into your intestines. (Source: excerpt from Keep your nervous system healthy: NIDDK)
