Nervous System Quizzes & Trivia

Motor Control refers to the ability of a person to systematically initiate as well as direct muscle function and voluntary movements. This process requires smooth interaction between the Central Nervous System(CNS) and the musculoskeletal system. This quiz has been created to test your knowledge about Central Nervous System which includes coordination, cognition, motor control topic. So, let's try out the quiz. All the best!
