Cerebro y sistema nervioso

"El sistema nervioso controla las muchas y complicadas funciones interconectadas del cuerpo y de la mente. Las funciones motora, cognitiva, sensorial y autónoma están todas coordinadas y dirigidas por el cerebro y los nervios. A medida que la persona envejece, las células nerviosas se deterioran en número y en efectividad, causando cierta disminución funcional."Cerebro y sistema nervioso
