The nervous system is the most complicated and important organ system. It is responsible for all the body functions that are performed. The body cannot function properly if any part of it is damaged. It controls and sends messages to the entire body and without it none of the tasks can be performed. When we touch a hot object, we immediately remove our hand; it is due to our reflex action that is controlled by our nervous system. The nervous system consists of the brain, nerve cells and the spinal cord, all of them are interconnected and control all our voluntary and involuntary body movements.
