Brain and Spinal Cord

The structure and function of the central nervous system (CNS) that comprise brain and spinal cord helps to understand the origin of the brain and spinal cord disorders. The brain in the hub of thoughts, memory, sense, emotions vision, hearing, speech, movement and etc. whereas the spinal cord and its nerve in the head i.e. cranial nerves transmit signals between the brain and the body. These signals trigger the muscle to transmit the information gathered through our senses and assist to coordinate the functions of internal organs. Like how the brain is protected by the skull, the spinal cord is also protected by the bone of the vertebral column. A special liquid, called cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), surrounds and cushions the brain and spinal cord. This CSF is produced by choroid plexus which is present in the ventricles of the brain.
