The central nervous system (CNS) is made up of the brain, the spinal cord, and the optic nerves. The central nervous system controls thought processes, guides movement, and registers sensations throughout the body.
- The brain is the most complex organ in the body and uses 20% of the total oxygen we breathe in.
- The retina, optic nerve, olfactory nerves and olfactory epithelium are sometimes considered to be part of the central nervous system.
- The CNS is often divided into white and gray matter.
- The brain consists of an estimated 100 billion neurons, with each connected to thousands more.
- CNS support cells, called glial cells, outnumber neurons 10 to 1.
- The brain can be divided into four lobes: temporal, parietal, occipital and frontal.
- Circuits within the spinal cord are capable of controlling motor coordination without input from the brain.
- The brain makes up around 2% of a human's entire weight.

Psychiatry is the medicinal forte that judgments and treats mental clutters, for the most part those requiring drug. Psychiatry is currently a very obvious movement in which absence of care in group, impulse, suicide, medication and liquor manhandle are couple of inspirations. Beginning with the recognizable proof of the major dysfunctional behaviors and how they are considered refinement from typicality. Prospering analysis and its later change into more available psychotherapies gave a possibility for better understanding. Current psychiatry too carries with it new debates, for example, the medicalization of ordinary life, and the energy of the medication organizations and the utilization of psychiatry as a specialist of social control.
Mental health is a level of psychological well-being, or an absence of mental illness. It is the psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment. Cultural differences, subjective assessments, and competing professional theories all affect how "mental health" is defined.

A stroke is a "brain attack". It can happen to anyone at any time. It occurs when blood flow to an area of brain is cut off. When this happens, brain cells are deprived of oxygen and begin to die. When brain cells die during a stroke, abilities controlled by that area of the brain such as memory and muscle control are lost.
How a person is affected by their stroke depends on where the stroke occurs in the brain and how much the brain is damaged. For example, someone who had a small stroke may only have minor problems such as temporary weakness of an arm or leg. People who have larger strokes may be permanently paralyzed on one side of their body or lose their ability to speak. Some people recover completely from strokes, but more than 2/3 of survivors will have some type of disability.The branch of nervous system which deals with the study of the cure, diagnosis, or mitigation of the children or kids called as pediatric neurology. It involves pediatric neurosurgery, pediatric neuropathy, pediatric neuroimaging etc.

Geriatric neurology is the branch of medicine that studies neurologic disorders in elderly. The subspecialty of Geriatric neurology is defined by its expertise in the diagnosis, treatment, and care of neurological conditions that affect elderly and by its unique body of knowledge regarding the aging nervous system, its vulnerability to specific neurological disorders, and its influence on the prevalence and expression of neurological disease. Neurologists are called with increasing frequency to provide care for older adults. As the number of elderly in the population increases, there will be a concomitant increase in the prevalence of acute and chronic neurological disorders associated with advancing age.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system).
In MS, the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. Eventually, the disease can cause the nerves themselves to deteriorate or become permanently damaged.
Signs and symptoms of MS vary widely and depend on the amount of nerve damage and which nerves are affected. Some people with severe MS may lose the ability to walk independently or at all, while others may experience long periods of remission without any new symptoms.
There's no cure for multiple sclerosis. However, treatments can help speed recovery from attacks, modify the course of the disease and manage symptoms.

Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensation from your face to your brain. If you have trigeminal neuralgia, even mild stimulation of your face — such as from brushing your teeth or putting on makeup — may trigger a jolt of excruciating pain.
- Illustration showing branches of the trigeminal nerve
- Branches of the trigeminal nerve
- Trigeminal neuralgia symptoms may include one or more of these patterns:
- Episodes of severe, shooting or jabbing pain that may feel like an electric shock
- Spontaneous attacks of pain or attacks triggered by things such as touching the face, chewing, speaking or brushing teeth
- Bouts of pain lasting from a few seconds to several minutes
- Episodes of several attacks lasting days, weeks, months or longer — some people have periods when they experience no pain
- Constant aching, burning feeling that may occur before it evolves into the spasm-like pain of trigeminal neuralgia
- Pain in areas supplied by the trigeminal nerve, including the cheek, jaw, teeth, gums, lips, or less often the eye and forehead
- Pain affecting one side of the face at a time, though may rarely affect both sides of the face
- Pain focused in one spot or spread in a wider pattern

Tourette syndrome (TS) is an inherited disorder of the nervous system, characterized by a variable expression of unwanted movements and noises (tics).
The cause of Tourette syndrome is unknown, although some studies suggest that the tics in Tourette syndrome are caused by an increased amount of a neurotransmitter called dopamine. A neurotransmitter is a chemical found in the brain that helps to transmit information from one brain cell to another. Other studies suggest that the defect in Tourette syndrome involves another neurotransmitter called serotonin; or involves other chemicals required for normal functioning of the brain.
Most studies suggest that Tourette syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder with decreased penetrance, although this hypothesis has not been proven and may not be true in all families. An autosomal dominant disorder results from a change in one copy of a pair of genes. Individuals with an autosomal dominant disorder have a 50% chance of passing on the changed gene to their children. Decreased penetrance means that not all people who inherit the changed gene will develop symptoms. There is some evidence that females who inherit the Tourette syndrome gene have a 70% chance of exhibiting symptoms and males have a 99% chance of having symptoms. It has been suggested that other genetic and environmental factors may play a role in the development of symptoms in people who inherit the changed gene, but none have been discovered. Some researchers believe that Tourette syndrome has different causes in different individuals or is caused by changes in more than one gene, although these theories are less substantiated. Further research is needed to establish the cause of Tourette syndrome.
To study the effect of drugs on the cellular function in nervous system is called as Neuropharmacology. It is of two types such as; Behavioral neuropharmacology and Molecular neuropharmacology. It explains the drug dependence and addiction effect of brain. The science dealing with the study of the effects of the poisons on the nervous system is called as Neuro toxicology. It happens when nervous system gets affected by the neurotoxins. It occurs due to the exposure of the chemotherapy, radiation treatment, drug abuse, pesticides etc.

Molecular neuroscience is a branch of neuroscience that watches ideas in sub-atomic science connected to the sensory systems of creatures. The extent of this subject spreads points, for example, sub-atomic neuroanatomical, instruments of sub-atomic motioning in the sensory system, the impacts of hereditary qualities and epigenetics on neuronal advancement, and the sub-atomic reason for neuroplasticity and neurodegenerative diseases. Cellular neuroscience involves cell morphology and physiological properties of nervous system. Also involves the neurotransmission process. To study the effect of biological processes on behaviors, feelings and thought of a person called as biopsychology or Behavioral Neuroscience . It can be also called as physiological psychology, behavioral neuroscience etc. Psychology along with the biological science explains the term biopsychology. It explores the knowledge in neurobiology.
