The Brain & the Nervous System takes viewers on a tour of these critical parts of the human body. Kids will learn about the three key parts of the nervous system -- the brain, spinal cord and nerves -- all of which are made up of special cells called neurons that transmit electrical impulses throughout the body. They'll discover the different types of neurons -- sensory, motor and associative -- each with a specialized function. Reflex actions are discussed, as well as an in-depth look at the three main parts of the brain: cerebrum, cerebellum and brain stem. Includes a visit with two neurologists and a fun, hands-on activity that allows kids to test their ability to learn.

This title is based on the concepts outlined in the National Science Education Standards for Life Science: structure & function in living systems, reproduction & heredity, regulation & behavior, and diversity & adaptations of organisms.
