Unformatted text preview: Motor system (efferent, descending system): delivers information from CNS to muscles/glands Motivational system: stimulates interest in initiating and completing a task (limbic system) Divisions of the human nervous system: Peripheral Nervous System: outside dura mater; Schwann cells provide myelin; axons can regenerate 1. Sensory (afferent) division: • Somatic sensory neurons: signals generated from skin/skeletal muscles • Visceral sensory neurons: signals generated from automatic nervous system 2. Motor (efferent) division: • Somatic nervous system: signals to skeletal muscles • Automatic nervous system: signals to smooth/cardiac muscle/glands Central Nervous System: oglidendrocytes provide myelin; axons CANNOT regenerate 1.
