3 Nervous system Responsible for most functions Distributed throughout body; influences all other systems Complex aggregation of cells Communication network and supportive matrix Has two major divisions: Central Nervous System (CNS) àbrain + spinal cord Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) àrest of body Nervous system i.Neurons Major functional unit of nervous system Communication network Receive information and transmit to other cells ii.Glial cells (neuroglia) Supportive matrix Proportion increases with evolutionary complexity Mammalian brain has 10x more neuroglia than neurons i. Neurons Classified functionally1.Sensory neurons (=
