This more of an anatomy and physiology question.


The Central Nervous System refers to the brain, brain cells and its nerves. The CNS is divided into two components which is the Autonomic and Somatic nervous system. The autonomic system is comprised mainly of our 5 senses and our vital signs (temperature regulation, heart rate, respiration, blood pressure regulation). The somatic nervous system is mainly in charge of our body movements.
