WHY I AM INTERESTED IN THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
The nervous system is a complex and vital part of the human body, playing a crucial role in maintaining homeostasis, allowing for communication between different parts of the body, and enabling various bodily functions. I’m interested in learning how the nervous system is responsible for coordinating and controlling all bodily activities. It regulates everything from basic reflexes to complex processes like thinking and problem-solving. Another reason is because I want to understand how the nervous system allows us to perceive and respond to the environment. It processes information from our senses (such as sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell) and helps us interact with our surroundings. Lastly, it is to know how the nervous system can contribute to some diseases if it fails or malfunctions.
MY 3 ROUNDS OF RESEARCH ARE:
- Understanding the nervous system and how it coordinates body activities and transmission of impulses.
- How is the nervous system impacted by Parkinson’s Disease?
- How is the nervous system impacted by Strokes?
