Neurosciences

Neurosciences (or clinical neurosciences) refers to the branch of medicine that focuses on the nervous system. The nervous system is made of two parts:

  • The central nervous system (CNS) consists of your brain and spinal cord.
  • The peripheral nervous system consists of all your nerves, including the autonomic nervous system, outside of the brain and spinal cord, including those in your arms, legs, and trunk of the body.

Together, your brain and spinal cord serve as the main "processing center" for the entire nervous system, and control all the functions of your body.
