The brain and nervous system form an intricate network of electrical signals that are responsible for coordinating muscles, the senses, speech, memories, thought and emotion.
Together, the brain and spinal cord form the central nervous system . This complex system is part of everything we do. It controls the things we choose to do -- like walk and talk -- and the things our body does automatically -- like breathe and digest food. The central nervous system is also involved with our senses -- seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, and smelling -- as well as our emotions, thoughts, and memory.

Central nervous system: The central nervous system has many functions and includes the structures and substances of the brain and spinal cord. The brain is located in the in the cranial cavity in the skull and is connected to the spinal cord. The spinal cord is located in the spinal cavity in the spinal column. The entire central nervous system is enclosed in the meninges.
The central nervous system dispatches and receives messages in the form of nerve impulses from the organs of sense, including the ears, nose, tongue, skin, and eyes. It also processes information received from nerve impulses and manages the body's voluntary motor movements and interactions and reactions to the environment, including controlling movement and behaviour. The central system interacts directly or indirectly with every other system in the body, including the musculoskeletal system, genitourinary system, circulatory system, immune system, respiratory system, digestive system, respiratory system and endocrine system.
