Central Nervous System Exam Quiz: Trivia! - Quiz

What is it about the central nervous system? The central nervous system controls most of the body and mind. It is comprised of two parts: the brain and the spinal cord. Your brain utilizes your nerves to send messages to different parts of your body. The brain is the command hub of the body, and without it, we cannot function. This incredible quiz will tell you all about the central nervous system. Don’t be anxious. You can do it.
