Click on GO to see the components of the nervous system.

The two major functions of the spinal cord: to pass sensory information from the peripheral nervous system to the brain and to transmit information from the brain to the peripheral nervous system
The spinal cord acts like a cable connecting the brain to the rest of the body through the peripheral nervous system. It is an extension of the brain, running from the base of the brain to just below the level of the waist. The brain and spinal cord combine to form the central nervous system.

The spinal cord consists of bundles of axons that carry the brain's commands to the peripheral nerves and relay sensations from the periphery of the body to the brain.
