About

Overview

Everyone knows that the brain is responsible for our smarts and the spinal cord holds us up, but students may be surprised to learn how much more these powerhouses are responsible for. This book explores how together they control the nervous system and how, without them, we would not be able to think, remember, digest nutrients, breathe, blink, swallow, and so much more.
