Digitised colour illustration of the human nervous system within a male figure (rear view). The brain and spinal cord constitute the central nervous system (CNS, yellow/orange). The CNS is respons- ible for integration of all nervous activities. There are 31 pairs of nerves that branch off the spinal cord; they carry nerve impulses from the CNS to the various structures of the body and back from these structures to the CNS. Nerves outside of the CNS (light blue) are part of the peripheral nervous system. This anatomy allows the human body to respond to outside stimuli, to move, feel, and to make intelligent choices.
