Nervous system, text 1. <small> Overall functions and given conditions.</small>

It is the BRAIN, the most intricate organ of the nervous system, that gives us our personality and our emotions and is responsible for our consciousness, for our self-experience, for our perception of time and for our memory functions.
A normally functioning and reasonably well-trained nervous system is therefore the very basic prerequisite for people to be able to move around in this life in an acceptable way.

The way the nervous system organizes our behavior, our emotional life and our world of thought depends above all on four factors:
1 . The innate, genetically controlled, functions and coupling patterns of the nervous system.
2 . The information that the sensory organs constantly and evenly record about events/changes taking place around us in our external environment and inside our body, i.e. in our musculoskeletal system (muscles, tendons and joints) and in our intestines.
3 . Learning and memories of past events and experiences as well as the "inner" memory of our reactions to these events and experiences.
4 . The system's ability to expand and reshape connection patterns and the distribution of neurons. In short, its plasticity.
