6th Grade: Complete and submit work on Google Classroom
Last week we learned about the Central Nervous system ( CNS ) and Peripheral Nervous System PNS along with Diseases of the Nervous System. We learned that the nervous system controls sensing, feeling, and thinking. It also controls movement and just about every other body function. That’s why problems with the nervous system can affect the entire body. Diseases of the nervous system include brain and spinal cord infections. We also analyzed other problems of the nervous system range from very serious diseases, such as tumors, to less serious problems, such as tension headaches. Some of these diseases are present at birth.
Today we are going to learn about injuries to the Nervous System.
What may happen if someone damages tissues of the brain or spinal cord?
Summary: Injuries of the Nervous System
Injuries to the central nervous system may damage tissues of the brain or spinal cord. If an injury is mild, a person may have a full recovery. If an injury is severe, it may cause permanent disability or even death. Brain and spinal cord injuries most commonly occur because of car crashes or sports accidents. The best way to deal with such injuries is to try to prevent them.
