Our nervous system must process vast amounts of information each second, information that comes from all parts of the body. Then nerve signals are sent out in response to those inputs. If this sounds simple, rest assured, it is not. It is all quite extraordinary! As with all things in our fallen cursed world, things do go wrong. We will explore the problems that occur when the nervous system is damaged by disease or injury. When you see the incredible complexity of the nervous system, you will realize that our bodies cannot be the result of chemical accidents occurring over millions of years. The human body is the greatest creation of an all-knowing Master Designer!

Come explore this in-depth examination of the body's master control mechanism, the nervous system!

The third volume of the Wonders of the Human Body series is the next step in our journey though the most amazing thing in the universe, the human body. Our nervous system must process vast amounts of information each second, information that comes from all parts of the body. Then nerve signals are sent out in response to those inputs. If this sounds simple, rest assured, it is not. It is all quite extraordinary! But as with all things in our fallen cursed world, things do go wrong. We will also explore the problems that occur when the nervous system is damaged by disease or injury.
