The Human Body Your body is a wonderful thing. It has many systems, organs, cells etc... Each part controls a different part of your body and how it functions. I am going to tell you about all of the systems.

The PNS includes the nerves that connect the CNS to all parts of your body. It carries messages to and from the CNS. All parts of the nervous system are made up of special nerve cells called neurons. Neurons cannot replace themselves like the other cells. Once they've been destroyed, they can't replace themselves.

The upper sections include your nose, mouth and windpipe. The lower section includes the lungs and two structures within the lungs the bronchi and the alveoli.

The alveoli are at the end of the bronchi. The diaphragm is an important part to breathing. The diaphragm is a large muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen.
