CNN: Vital Signs with Dr. Sanjay Gupta

Ep 46 - The Nervous System

Inhaling, perspiring, blinking - these actions are all on autopilot. But behind these simple functions is a complex network made up of billions of cells telling our lungs to breathe, our skin to sweat, and our eyes to blink. This silent workhorse is the nervous system. It's the way we control our bodies and communicate with the world around us. We map out this command center, investigate what happens when it doesn't work, and see how technology is enabling amputees to communicate with their artificial limbs through the nervous system.
