This book covers many of the important experiments about the development of the nervous system and is a great resource for those interested or starting out in neuroscience. Additionally, the writing is straightforward and accessible/5(21). After reading this article you will learn about how nervous system influences behaviour of an individual. The nervous system is the part of the body most intimately involved in behaviour. All the activities of the living organism involve the nervous system. The more complex the behaviour, the greater is the involvement of the nervous system.   Upon maturation of the nervous system, several perspectives begin to diverge in the scientific community, as this is the point where the nervous system sustains itself and affects cognitive functioning, learning, and behavior. It is understood that genetics play a role in the construction and development of the human nervous system.   Development of the Nervous System presents a broad and basic treatment of the established and evolving principles of neural development as exemplified by key experiments and observations from past and recent times. The text is organized ontogenically. It begins with the emergence of the neural primordium and takes a chapter-by-chapter approach in succeeding Book Edition: 3.

The nervous system is a highly complex part of an animal that coordinates its actions and sensory information by transmitting signals to and from different parts of its body. The nervous system detects environmental changes that impact the body, then works in tandem with the endocrine system to respond to such events. Nervous tissue first arose in wormlike organisms about FMA: The development of the autonomic nervous system in the human fetus mirrors the broader phylogenetic progression described above. The oldest existing autonomic system, comprised of unmyelinated vagal fibers originating from the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus (DMNX), is also, embryologically, the earliest system to develop in by: If you are wondering how does central nervous system affect human behavior, you will be surprised to learn that the system plays an important role in controlling behavior. The system is made up of the spinal cord and brain, and both these together control various facets of human behavior. The brain gets messages from different parts of the body. The socialization period of cats is much shorter than that of dogs and may begin to wane by 7–9 wk of age. During this narrow window, exposure to cats, other animals, people, and a variety of stimuli in the environment is important for prevention of fear.

Perhaps his best-known contribution in this regard was his now classic book Organization of Behavior (). In this work Hebb not only outlined a plausible and testable conceptual framework for understanding the role of sensory and perceptual experience in the development of the nervous system and behavior, but also provided empirical support Cited by: Development of the Nervous System by Dr Maggie Lowre It is important to know about the development of the nervous system so we can understand the mature CNS better. Also, some neurological disorders have a developmental origin, and knowledge of some of these mechanisms may be useful in treatment. Nervous System development across the human lifespan As a species, humans have evolved a complex nervous system and brain over millions of years. Comparisons of our nervous systems with those of other animals, such as chimpanzees, show some similarities (Darwin, ). The development of the nervous system, or neural development, or neurodevelopment, refers to the processes that generate, shape, and reshape the nervous system of animals, from the earliest stages of embryonic development to adulthood. The field of neural development draws on both neuroscience and developmental biology to describe and provide insight into the cellular and .
