BUSINESS ANALYSIS PART I 2 Introduction  The human body is compound of different biological systems that together carry out  necessary function for our daily leaving. One of the most important and vital system for our  effective functioning is the nervous system. According with Dr. Ananya Mandal, MD, “the  nervous system is a complex network of nerves and cells that carry messages to and from the  brain and spinal   cord to various parts of the body” (Mandal, 2016). The first important findings  related to the nervous system took origin in the fourth century B.C. when Aristoteles (Greek  philosopher) firmly believed that the heart was the organ that controlled the nerves and all the  motions and sensations of the body. Six centuries later Galen (Roman physician) concluded that  the source of the nerves and the most important organ of the body was the brain; creating a  different perspective of the nervous system.

REGULATORY BEHAVIOR 3 The Role of the Nervous System The nervous systems’ principal role is to coordinate all the body’s activities. It consist of the Central nervous system (Brain and Spinal Cord) and the Peripheral  nervous (Somatic and the Autonomic nervous systems), each one with different roles  and functions. In the Central nervous system, the brain control the emotions and  thoughts; and the spinal cord carry the information, coordinate and control reflex. In  the Peripheral nervous, the Somatic nervous systems control the voluntary movement  and the Autonomic nervous systems control the involuntary movement.  This two  systems work together to understand the behaviors inside the body and the  environment outside, to provide specific and appropriate instructions to the different  biological systems.  The Effect of Fear in the Human Body  The nervous system control the emotions of the body but is not just the feeling or the mental states; is also psychological and behavioral changes. Thierry Steiner,  PhD, states that “emotions being experienced or expressed at three different, but  closely interrelated levels: the mental or psychological level, the (neuro) physiological level, and the behavioral level” (Steiner, 2002). This three aspect are present in the  different emotions, such as fear, aggression and anxiety. The function or effect of

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
