Come explore this in-depth examination of the body’s master control mechanism, the nervous system!

The third volume of the Wonders of the Human Body series is the next step in our journey through the most amazing thing in the universe, the human body. Our nervous system must process vast amounts of information each second, information that comes from all parts of the body. Then nerve signals are sent out in response to those inputs. If this sounds simple, rest assured, it is not. It is all quite extraordinary! But as with all things in our fallen cursed world, things do go wrong. We will also explore the problems that occur when the nervous system is damaged by disease or injury.

In The Nervous System, you will learn about:

  • How nerve signals are generated throughout the body
  • How these nerve signals are transmitted to and from the brain
  • The structure of the brain and how it processes input from the body
  • Our senses: sight, hearing, taste, and more

When you see the incredible complexity of the nervous system, you will realize that our bodies cannot be the result of chemical accidents occurring over millions of years. The human body is the greatest creation of an all-knowing Master Designer!

My son really enjoyed reading this book. He loves the study of the human body and this book was very helpful and great to help with that. Loved the pictures and the way it is set up. Can't wait to finish the class with the other book.
Great tool
Review by Marie
I have not used the teacher guides for these books. I however have these books on my shelf for reading and researching about the human body. They are a great resource for your science reference shelf.
