What are the ways in which nervous system communicates with muscles?
Asked by Akhila | 14th Jul, 2013, 10:38: AM
The central nervous system (CNS) consists of the brain and spinal column. Muscles are controlled by the peripheral nervous system (PNS). The PNS extends from the CNS and connects the CNS the muscles present in all parts of the body. The PNS is divided into the somatic nervous system (SNS) and the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Skeletal muscles are controlled by the SNS, while cardiac and smooth muscles are controlled by the ANS.
