A Trivia Quiz On Neuroanatomy!

What do you know about neuroanatomy? Neuroanatomy is the research of the structure and purpose of the nervous system. The nervous system is derived from numerous connected systems that work synergistically to send and receive messages from the central nervous system, which consists of the brain, the spinal cord, and the whole human body. The quiz will reveal what you know about neuroanatomy.
