The nervous system is comprised of the brain, spinal cord, and an extensive network of nerves that run throughout the body, carrying signals from the brain to muscles, glands, organs, etc. Most of the time, this amazing system works without any problems. However, conditions and diseases can develop that prevent the signals from being transmitted and received properly. Conditions that affect the nervous system include seizure disorders, Bell's palsy, Tourette syndrome, meningitis, and more.
