Human nervous system. Artwork of a human figure showing the central nervous system (CNS, brain and spinal cord, blue) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS, nerves, yellow). The latter branch off from the spinal cord, while the brain processes and sends signals from and to the areas supplied by the nerves. Together, the CNS and PNS make up the human nervous system. The human brain contains billions of neurons, while the PNS consists of over 70 kilometres of nerves.
