The brain and the spinal cord make up the central nervous system. The spinal cord is essential in relaying information to and from the brain. A total of 31 spinal nerves branch out from the spinal cord, connecting it to the rest of the body and transmitting sensory information back and forth. The spinal cord is about the diameter of a clothesline and consists of grey matter surrounded by an insulating layer of white matter. 


The spinal cord is enclosed within the 33 vertebral bones of the spinal column and its central canal is filled with fluid that flows into the brain. The brainstem, located near the center of the skull, connects the higher brain centers with the spinal cord. It also helps control numerous important involuntary functions and comprises the hypothalamus, which helps regulate hormones that affect the pituitary gland and the substantia nigra, critical for the secretion of dopamine. 


Some disorders are known to have a direct effect on the brain, including strokes, tumours, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease. These illnesses present with the characteristic effect of causing progressive loss or destruction of brain tissue.
